I swung by my favourite thrift store today and much to my surprise found some more Franklin Library books. I thought I had cleaned them out last time but perhaps they had more in storage. This time I got some Greek Tragedies (which I already have but it’s such a pretty book!), Augustine’s Confessions, Montaigne’s essays, Great Expectations (illustrated), The Magic Mountain, and A Farewell to Arms (illustrated). The Hemmingway is the only one that has been read. It looks like it was only partly read but also abused because the binding is racked. I suspect a high school student (it was part of the curriculum when I went through). It still looks good though.
Alas, I didn’t get all the Franklins they had there. I saw a lady walking around with two of them, The Mill on the Floss and The Decameron. I tried to do a trade with her but she was having none of it. I even told her The Mill on the Floss was very sad and she wouldn’t like it but she just laughed and thought I was very funny. Harrumph. Still I can’t complain considering what I got, and for only $1 each this time. I really must shop there more often!
