May 1 - Value Village
A quick jaunt for a used lightweight jacket, leading inevitably to a few books at $3.99 each:
- Gretel Ehrlich, The Solace of Open Spaces (essays about her adopted home of Wyoming)
- Mark Kingwell, Catch & Release: Trout Fishing and the Meaning of Life (the one-weekend conversion of a philosopher who starts a fishing trip by saying, "I will sit in the back of the boat reading The Critique of Pure Reason, but I will not fish"), and
- Anny Scoones, Home and Away: More Tales of a Heritage Farm (great little book about the author's very small farm on southern Vancouver Island).
