I live in Seattle, a town almost smothered in bookstores, but I had my neighborhood bookseller find two out of print books for me to purchase: The Geography of Hope: A Tribute to Wallace Stegner & The Other American: The life of Michael Harrington. Both are very good paperbacks and will run me about $40, and I have about 75 other books on my shelves waiting to be read, but do I care? No!! I want to read these books, eventually, and since they are out of print they might just disappear.
Next I am looking for a reasonably priced paperback copy of a book I lost called June 30th, June 30th by the Tacoma born poet Richard Brautigan. The book chronicles a year he spent in Japan, all in haiku poetry. Looking on the net I will be lucky to get a copy for under $50. But after I make my house payment (you should always have a dry place to starve to death-Orwell) then if there is money left over I buy some food and drink then the rest goes into the library.
