Original Message Amongst the doom and gloom, the hyperbole and the negative crap, I thought I would post about a snippet of good fortune.....

Yesterday we went to the library and on their "used books" rack was a HUGE collection of antique and vintage books recently donated. I collect vintage books and it is one of my few current passions but I have not had the funds or the time to do the requisite hunting lately. Well, my local library did all the work for me :). Normally it's a bunch of mangled, marked up crud suitable for reference material only, but this, this was a goldmine.

For a mere 12$ I walked away with literally HUNDREDS of dollars worth of books. Some stretching back to the mid 19th century (1850's) and almost all in fantastic condition. I am tempted to simply put the gems into my collection but will most likely sell off the most valuable to fund Christmas this year.

So, the lesson here children.... Support your local library! They give valuable stuff away for free on a daily basis (with me even more so :)).

Oh, and check out Ebay for vintage/antique books from Ohio this Christmas too :)
