Where ya gonna put 'em? That was E's retort, when she saw the books on my return from the Portland Public Library's annual Book Sale yesterday afternoon. I quite enjoy taking in this event each year, and at 50 cents per hardcover what a deal! No first editions here, but still... want to know what I lugged home to the bookshelf? How about a collection of Sherlock Holmes' tales, a copy of London's Sea Wolf, Tom Swift and his Sky Train, a Paul Theroux novel, My Secret History, and a W. Somerset Maugham biography. Just a few things to, maybe, keep me out of trouble this week.
