It is 1:15 PM afternoon on a Wednesday. It is a cold sunny day. I left this morning to do errands and also to visit thrift stores North Holland. I found these used books this morning to add to our library-

'Bombardiers' a Satire by Po Bronson

'Friends Of My Youth: Stories' by Alice Munro

'Who Killed Palomino Molero?' A novel by Mario Vargas Llosa translated by Alfred Mac Adam

'Sunlight on a Broken Column' a novel by Attia Hosain

'Beirut Blues' a novel by Hanan al-Shaykh Translated by Catherine Cobham

'Salt' a novel by Earl Lovelace

'Ripley Under Ground' a mystery by Patricia Highsmith

'Ripley Under Water' a mystery by Patricia Highsmith

'Deadline: A Memoir' by James Reston

'Killing Dragons: The Conquest Of The Alps' Mountain Climbing/Adventure by Fergus Fleming

'Pig Earth' Short Stores by John Berger

'The Mismeasure Of Man' essays by Stephen Jay Gould

'VN: The Life and Art of Vladimir Nabokov' biography by Andrew Field

'The Diviner's Tale' a novel by Bradford Morrow

'Thomas Merton On Mysticism' by Raymond Bailey

So these are the old used books I bought today for our library. I figure all together I spent around ten dollars for all these used books. A real steal for me a old crazy book lover. I already have cataloged these used books into my LibraryThing site.

I am tired so I will close. I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I spent the morning hours doing the usual activities. Carol called from the Seattle Airport. Carol flies from Seattle to Chicago and then takes plane to Grand Rapids. She has an hour lay over in Chicago before flying to Grand Rapids. She said she thinks she will be home around 5 o'clock PM.

All I have attempted to read today was from a book titled, 'Pages From The Goncourt Journals' Edmond And Jules De Goncourt Edited, translated, and with an Introduction by Robert Baldick. Last night I made a video for my Youtube channel and read, 'The Second Angel' a Science Fiction novel by Philip Kerr. Well, I need to close to do some cleaning before Carol comes home from being away out in the far Pacific Northwest.
