Friends of the Library Used Books Sale 07/19/2022

It is 1:56 PM Tuesday afternoon here in Western Michigan. It is 80 degrees and humid outside today. Since I am very tired I am going to just list the used books I bought today at the Friends of the Library Used Books Sale. I have been awake since 4:50 AM and feel wasted. I woke up because I could hear Carol moving around upstairs around 4:50 AM. I laid in bed till 6:30 AM and decided to get up and face Time.

I won't go into detail about my morning hours since I basically do the same thing every day. I left for the Friends of the Library Used Books Sale around 9:30 AM and was one of the first in line. Most the early people standing in line were bookdealers (men and women who sale used books online). I will not list all the used books I bought today since it would take to write them by longhand in my paper diary. I will list the used books here and then copy off this diary entry and place it in my July 2022 Paper Diary for no one to read-
