In early March Frances of Nonsuch Book and I went to Baltimore to visit a book "store" where all the books are free. She wrote about it here, so I won't say too much more. What I am going to show you today is how that excursion threw my already full library into turmoil.
In very short order I began finding books that I knew would be coming home with me.
|In the first 60 seconds of looking I came across two great finds.|
|The result was a big old pile of books. 23 of them and all were free. But this meant I was going to have to find room in my already full library.|
|The chaos that ensued was I started to organize. Lucy occasionally gave advice and instruction.|
|I love that Nonsuch Book (no relation to Frances) publishes great forgotten literature. But they make them too squat and wide. They don't feel real good in the hand and they take up too much shelf space.|
|I've got a lot of Mitford. And this picture is even missing one volume.|
|Because of my recently discovered love of Eric Ambler (note the first picture at top) a friend suggested I might enjoy Helen MacInnes. I haven't read her yet, but I wasn't about to pass up all of these on the chance that I will like her.|
