Because our 17-day road trip was cut down to eight, I didn’t do as much book browsing as I anticipated doing. I was particularly looking forward to going to used book stores and just having a good rummage around. Prior to hitting the road, I think I had only been in two used bookstores since March 2020. Buying used books online is even less satisfying as buying new books online. Plus the I was hoping to come across some of the dusty old forgotten authors that aren’t desired enough for someone to put them for sale online. I was looking forward to the hunt.
As you may already have seen in an earlier post, I did have a good hour at the Book Barn of the Finger Lakes, but its so over filled that it was somewhat challenging.
Looking through my photos, I realize that I didn’t document things very well. It was nice to forget about the phone in my pocket, so I guess that was a good thing.
I enjoyed Great Victorian Collection earlier this year. Sorry your trip had to be shortened

Those Mrs ‘Arris editions look super. I’ve not read a Ruth Prawer Jhabvala I’ve not liked so a good call there, I think!
Looks like some pretty good book shopping to me :) That Double Blind cover is gorgeous and those Mrs. ‘Arris books look like such fun.
Nice haul. I am reading the most recent Damon Galgut novel, The Promise, and very much enjoying it. I’ve also just recently finished the first four novels in St. Aubyn’s Patrick Melrose books and am curious about the title you purchased. I thought they were pretty good, but I started with the first one and read on. You only read the fourth one and I wonder if that is why you didn’t like it.
Love the Duck or Grouse sign..Ha!
A friend in DC tried to lure me to Baldwin’s Book Barn recently. I was definitely tempted!
