Daily Thoughts 6/10/2011

Bust of Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) by Paterne Berrichon (1855-1922).  From La Plume 1900.
Daily Thoughts 6/10/2011

Today has been another quiet, steady day.  I checked the displays, updated the Twitter account, and spent a little bit of time looking at June's Indie Next List.   I also sometimes like to look at the Strand Bookstore online and Powell's Books.

Today is the book sale.  I stopped by and had some coffee and a brownie.  It looked like there were a lot of people this time.  It is very much a genteel activity to do.  The tables had a nice variety of books.  Usually, some of the book dealers come early in the morning on the first day of the sale, then they come at the end of the sale, hoping for a bargain to take away a lot of books.

I am taking out Confucius The Analects, Oxford World's Classics.
