A day well spent

At the Printers Row Book Fair.

Calvino to Bellow, loads of books were bought. Peace it should have been but that was not to be. At the very last stall, saw Alberto Manguel's A History of Reading out of the corner of my eye. Reached for it, but A~ touched it a millisecond before me. She bought it for $2 while I keep gazing at it with intense longing. Such is life.

I would have envied you, but there are some good second-hand bookstores in Mussoorie too.

I do envy you the Bryce Canyon trip. Such a feast of reason and flow of soul, too!

Yeah, go on, as if your S India sojourn was not enough, now you have to make me more jealous by talking about Mussoorie. :(
