The laundry library

Photo / Feb. 23, 2011

Down in our building’s laundry room there’s these two book shelves — a graveyard for books people don’t want but can’t bare to throw away. Often the books should just be put out of their misery, but occasionally you’ll find a gem. Like the 1972 “Bullwinkle” Little Golden Book which cost only 39 cents. And look up on the end of the top shelf — that’s a 1933 printing of “The Arabian Nights”. I’ll be rescuing both if they’re still there in a week.
