books

I'm always in the middle of half a dozen books. I love inexpensive used books (garage sales and library sales are big events for me), and I have a lot of them. The blog has occasional entries about books I'm reading.

The World Rushed In, p. 275

I'm always in the middle of half a dozen books. One of the ones I'm reading at the moment is The World Rushed In, which I picked up at a garage sale for a buck.

(Garage sales and library sales have ruined me for regular book-buying. If it costs more than a dollar, I can rarely bring myself to buy it.)

When I picked it up, I thought it was a basic historical account of the Gold Rush. It turns out to be a much more interesting thing: one man's Gold Rush diary, supplemented with excerpts from other Gold Rush diaries.
