Found at the thrift store:
One ball of red-and-other-colours heavy yarn that I think might work for Jo Doll's hair
One kid's denim outfit from the clearance corner, to make a skirt and vest for Jo Doll.
Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle...And Other Modern Verse. Scholastic TX868. A classic of my schooldays.
Cavalcade of Poems, Scholastic TX577
The Educated Imagination, by Northrop Frye. I loaned mine out and I'm not sure if or when I'll see it again, so I picked up another fifty cent copy.
Time as History: CBC Massey Lectures 1969, by George Grant (the Canadian George Grant). The Educated Imagination is part of the Massey lectures series too.
The Science Class You Wish You Had...by David Eliot Brody & Arnold R. Brody.
The Dinosaur Hunters, by Deborah Cadbury. This is the same book as Terrible Lizard, just a different title.
Most expensive thing I priced today: a book of Annie Leibowitz's photos for $10. I figure somebody will buy it. Most out-of-place thing I found: a book of daily affirmations called Seeds of Change, sorted with the gardening books. Coolest thing I priced last week but it's gone now: a biography of Edward Gorey.
