Book Bacchanalia 3

For those of you not familiar, Book Bacchanalia is our name for library discarded book sales, where we can get books for 10¢ to $1.00.

So Geary was out of town for this month's Book Bacchanalia. I had to brave crowds of bibliophiles by myself. Scary. But I can't think of a better way to start the day.
