Books Purchased

I have been unpacking the 2 boxes of books my family bought for ourselves at the All Saints’ Episcopal Church Library used book sale we helped to staff last weekend. (It is very hard to work on a book sale and not pick up some gems.)

  1. Hmm, some of those sound familiar. If "The Moon Maid" is one of the nice Frontiers of Imagination editions, it was probably my donation. Clausewitz might be from me, too.
