The Cranbury Bookworm is one of our favorite locals - a used bookstore in an old white house; they buy and sell. Selling is usually dangerous, because we usually come home with more than we went with, but I am determined to be relentless, and I have also made a resolution in the last few years to buy less fiction. There is, of course, a list of exempted authors, and it does't apply to things that have to be tracked down - and it's not a hard and fast rule. We have a good local library and when I am reading fiction, it's generally mysteries or things I don't re read. So, for the last few years my rule of thumb is not to buy fiction unless I find myself checking it out for the third time.
Still, the BooKworm is dangerous territory, because it's full of things that *might* be out of print.
Once Jim and I took a group of weekend visitors for their fix, and we were checking out behind a guy who had happily hit the motherload - he had about 20 old issues of Science and Mechanics. Jim was forced to peer over his shoulder and share the geek moment. He poked me in the ribs and pointed - and there on the top was an issue with a little yellow car, proudly emblazoned Build the S&M Fun Buggy!
