I do have one book (& one Bob Hope DVD set) on hold awaiting my next paycheck.

In the meantime, I brought home another ARC: Wolf Den by Elodie Harper (pub 4/22; historical fiction)

I've been pretty good this month.

Last week, I took six grocery bags of books to my local used bookstore: https://www.librarything.com/venue/354/Powells-Hyde-Park Usually, they don't take much of what I bring, but this time they took four of the six bags, and I got $200 in credit!

Naturally, I had to spend some of it there and then, but only bought two for myself:

The Frank Lloyd Wright collection of surimono, by Joan B. Mirviss and a copy of Gaudy Night to replace the one I have that is falling apart.
