I found three nice books in a thrift store. They cost me a total of three dollars and fifty cents. They are unread. Someone paid a lot of money for these books. Let's call the total forty-five dollars. None of them were ever read. I'll read them. I'm happy to have them. It's the previous owners loss intellectually and financially that they didn't read them.
Here they are:
1. Katherine Kurtz: In the King's Service.
2. Anne Mcaffrey and S. M. Stirling: The City Who Fought.
3. A. B. Paine: Th. Nast: His period and his pictures. A reprint of the 1904 editon done in the 1970's. It's a shame this sat on someone's shelf unread for about twenty-five years. I'll enjoy it.
Oh ... a hint to thrift store book buyers. Those nasty price tags come off with a bit of lighter fluid. It's very volitile so it won't stain the paper.
