Well, a day on the coast anyway. Despite the universe’s attempts to prevent me, I managed to nip up to Portland to exchange several boxes of books with Don Lindgren @ Rabelais for money, so I can exchange that money for more books. The cruel circle of life eh? The weather was disgusting, all bright colors and sunshine, nakedly walking around without layers of winter clothing and woolen socks. It’s just unnatural I tell you.
But, I did manage to catch up with Ian and Eli Kahn of Lux Mentis, boy booksellers, who kept me entertained for a few hours.
Maine is still a good booking place if you have the time and inclination to bop about. I have toyed with pulling up stakes for it but I still shudder at the thought of squeezing my life into a few dozen boxes. Perhaps someone else will come into my home when I am not there and do it for me.
