One of the nice things about working where I do is that we occasionally have little sales during the day, primarily for charitable purposes. In this case the sale was of used books, and the charity was the Food Bank of North Carolina.
Now, anyone who has seen our house knows we do not need more books, but I ended up with 11 of them anyway. Must keep the books circulating. The weird thing is, I almost never buy biographies new, but I’m compelled to when I see them used. Something about thumbing through a musty biography just seems right. Good haul in this set:
- Autobiography of Malcolm X
- Black Boy, by Richard Wright
- I Am Spock, by Leonard Nimoy
- Reba: My Story, by Reba McEntire
I should point out that the books were donated by Felton’s Books, which is doing its thing online now. Check them out. I highly recommend them.
