Well, as you note elsewhere, we don't have the same kind of shops you do.
:)  The thrift stores depends on which ones you go to; it seems
that the ones that have a poor selection of books always have a poor
selection.  And I'm really not kidding about the no bookstores thing.  I'm
used to living fairly close to at least *one* bookstore, even if it's not
great.  (Also, the used book phenomenon has really taken off in the West
lately, and prices can be fairly high even for old battered books.  Too bad
I wasn't more wealthy ten years ago when you could still get a bag of books
in good shape for $10.)

It turned out that Amazon gave me a complimentary shipping upgrade for no
reason and the books were on my doorstep when I got back from the hospital!

My relatives cleaned mine out at the beginning of the year.  I can't seem to
think of any new titles to add to it--again, lots of things I want aren't in
print yet....
