Today we received a small package in the mail, it contained a book on our reading list for the year. Most of the books we read are checked out from our local library, our absolute favorites however are purchased. When we do this we try to obtain them from our local independent bookstore, but if they are not available, we go through independent bookstores online. The best is Powell's. And if it is used that is available, even better!
What I love most about used books, are the inscriptions inside. It makes my heart ache.
