Figure 1. John Steinbeck: Journal of a Novel (The East of Eden Letters)
Have you ever visited Abebooks.com? It’s a wonderful online bookstore with thousands of sellers. Well, I recently opened a store on their website. I currently have over 300 used books listed for sale in the following categories: rare, signed, children’s books, foreign language, fiction, and nonfiction. Will you be my next buyer? Prices range from $5 to several hundred. The majority are in very good condition with some at “near fine” or “fine”. Moreover, I have several first editions for only $10. Purchasing used books is a great way to recycle!
Figure 2. House-Boat Summer by Elizabeth Coastsworth
This book was illustrated by Marguerite Davis. It’s a collectible book with gorgeous illustrations. Here’s an excerpt from the book: “Where there was darkness, now the window square blooms on the night. Lovely are stars and moon, but lovelier to the heart the waiting lamp which love has lighted for one coming soon.”
