Sandy and I went and I brought home quite a haul. For $26 I purchased FOOTPRINTS ON THE ROOF, by Marilyn Singer; MOON, HAVE YOU MET MY MOTHER?, the collected works of Karla Kuskin; THE BEST POEMS OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, edited by Harold Bloom; MRS. COLE ON AN ONION ROLL, by Kalli Dakos; HEROES AND SHE-ROES, by J. Patrick Lewis; RING OF EARTH, by Jane Yolen; BOW BOW MEOW MEOW, by Douglas Florian; ANIMAL TRACKS, by Charles Ghigna; and an Advance uncorrected proof of XANADU 2, selected and edited by Jane Yolen. I picked up a copy of EDGAR ALLAN POE: A GUIDE FOR READERS YOUNG AND OLD, for which I wrote the foreword, but put it down. Now I wish I’d bought it.
Is that a haul or what? Sandy picked up five CDs for one dollar each so we’re already enjoying those.
