The recycling center here in Wichita has a books section. People bring unwanted books and then anyone can get whatever they want for free. It's pretty awesome, except that the encyclopedia sets are almost never complete. Of course, I can't complain too much, especially since there's always a fun (and rather odd) selection of books. For example, last weekend there were two copies of a book called Fat is a Feminist Issue--one was in "health" next to a paperback copy of Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask while the other was in "women" next to When I Say No, I Feel Guilty. The nonfiction section is always a hoot. I usually head for the hardcover fiction, which turns up a good selection of midcentury novels (many by women authors, at that).
Here's some exciting news--well, I think it's exciting, anyway. My hair is long enough again to go into a bun! Woohoo! I love wearing my hair this way because it can be 18th century or 1970s, take your pick. That is, the 18th century or the 1970s, according to films starring Ryan O'Neal.
