“As much as a man may who has no money to spend. Now and then I pick up something in the rubbish heap; and I go and look on at the big sales.” The House of Mirth, Edith Wharton
The Community Thrift in the city is a treasure mine for those who are up for a bargain. They’ve got lots of books for under $2. From time to time I pick up something in fairly good condition from there. Books are grouped under categories and genres, in alphabetical order of author’s last name. They have new arrivals every week, thanks to the hoarders living in small quarters in a small city.
