Second Saturdays are the best Saturdays. They are better than First Fridays and are the only Saturdays I will get out of bed before noon. The second Saturday of each month, the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library group opens the doors to their book haven and sells all of the used/new angels for just one dollar. I came out of the sale today, after an hour, with thirteen gems for just thirteen dollars. The books I found are:
- The Odyssey by Homer
- Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
- Friday the Rabbi Slept Late by Harry Kemelman
- Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams
- Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
- 20,000 Words (Just a book with 20,000 words) by
- The Hunger Pains by The Harvard Lampoon
- Confessions of Zeno by Italo Svevo
- A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
- The Tin Drum by Gunter Grass
- Main Street by Sinclair Lewis
- My Dog Tulip by J.R. Ackerly
- Walden by Henry David Thoreau
By the way, leaving the book sale I saw a boy with this bag and now I am going to google it to find one for when I go to the sale.
