Today I picked up used copies of 2014 Scott Catalouges Volume 1 and 2 for $25 for both of them. I see they have a Bargain Bin section and noticed that they have over a million books for less than $5. Look Here
Check them out.
Edit: Just noticed that the free shipping is worldwide.
Just finished "A Spool of Blue Thread" by Anne Tyler, her latest novel, on the current shortlist for the Man Booker prize. I really enjoyed it. There's no conventional strong plot but it takes a so-called ordinary US family and, darting back and forth in time, shows how non-ordinary they really are. In line with my experience that all families are extraordinary in their own way. Beautifully written.
@michaelcayley, I know they are going to announce the winner of the Man Booker Prize soon and I am looking forward to seeing who wins. I may not have mentioned it here but I am trying to read all the Pulitzer Prize winning novels since 1949....I consider the Man Booker winners my next reading list.
No longer in denial! I collect all of it...the whole world! Just printing and mounting as I go! Call me crazy.
It's not often you can read a novel in which a stamp plays a major role, but I have just finished one, The Small Fortune of Dorothea Q by Sharon Maas. It deals with the lives, loves and deep family wounds of three generations of a family of Guyana origin, and is set partly in Guyana and partly in London. A crotchety elderly Guyanan woman comes to stay with her daughter and granddaughter in London, and with her is a "small fortune": a British Guiana stamp - yes, a second copy of that 1856 British Guiana stamp worth millions. I really enjoyed the book.
I read books for the pictures. Here's one I picked up from the library for 25¢. It's actually a pretty big book, as 14¼" by 17¼". Oddly enough, it's the British edition, because on the back it has the cover price listed at £50. I felt so bad about the deal, that I gave the library $1 for it.
