Well, of course I went back. Much fewer people this morning, even though I got there just before 9:30. I scored a good one, too, just as I was about to say farewell to the biography area: they had a copy of Frank Gilbreth Jr's Time Out for Happiness, a third book about the Gilbreths of Cheaper by the Dozen/Belles on Their Toes. This one is mostly about the parents, and Lillie after the death of Frank. I've only read it as a library book.
Let's see, proving once again I never met a history book I didn't like:
The Americans: A Social History of the United States, 1587-1914 (otherwise "History with the politics left out," which is as I like it)
Oh, Say Can You See: Unexpected Anecdotes About American History
The Lion's Pride: Theodore Roosevelt and His Family in Peace and War
The Great Wagon Road about the Great Wagon Road and the Wilderness Road of colonial through post-Revolutionary America
Yours, Isaac Asimov: A Lifetime of Letters
Christmas Worldwide: A Guide to Customs and Traditions
Three "Dear America" books: lighthouse keeper's daughter during the Civil War, Polish immigrant in late 19th century, and a blind girl at the Perkins Institute in the 1930s
Three books for James (two WWII-related and one weather)
Hardback copies of Big Red and Savage Sam.
and a brand new book for someone who once admitted they hadn't read this particular classic (nicely illustrated, too).
