Here are a few photos of some of the poetry in softcover. All these are under $10.
Above is Seamus Heany's: BEOWULF. $6.50 (case # 32) Then John Updike's COLLECTED POEMS. $8.00 (case # 31). (I must admit I did not know this famous American author wrote poetry..)
It's a quiet Sunday and St. Patrick's Day and I think everyone is at the parade in Holyoke. Supposedly the nation's 2nd largest one....where is the largest? So on this slow day at the bookstore I finally get to the blog after a long lapse. And I am experimenting with putting more photos on this page so bear with me.
Here is a great present for someone: THE BOOK OF HEAVEN.. An Anthology of Writings From Ancient to Modern Times. $7.50 (Case # 74)
It's getting busy at the store. Several parties have come in, in the last 20 minutes. The parade must have finished. Love these light later afternoons. Soon it is time to go back to helping customers.
The last book shown is one of the more scholarly new arrivals:
It's closing time, 5 pm and there are still 5 cars in the parking lot. I won't be closing on time tonight...but that's okay with me. On my third listening of the Nitty Gritty which is good company!
