Library book sale!

Took a little money and spent a little time at the Better Books Sale at our local library, and came home happy. I'm the new owner of:

- Angie Debo's Prairie City: The Story of an American Community
- Bill Bryson's Made in America: An Informal History of the English Language in the United States
- The Library of America's The American Revolution: Writings from the War of Independence
- Margaret Musgrove's The Student's Ovid, Selections from the Metamorphoses
- Churchill's The Birth of Britain (A History of the English Speaking People)
- Lial's Intermediate Algebra: with Early Functions and Graphing (2002)

All in excellent condition. The Library of America volume will go next to my two-volume LoA set of Lincoln's writings. Ovid will keep company with the study volume of The Aeneid. Churchill goes into the European history shelf (or two or however many). Lial's algebra needs a good looking through to see how it compares to what Son1 has studied this year, and then will head to either the reference shelf or the in-the-future shelf. Prairie City goes with western/Oklahoma books. Bryson's American English book might slide in next to the book on the origins of nursery rhymes.

It's so very, very nice to have added four bookcases recently.
