Dollar store treasures

I love going to the dollar store to find new books to read. Once in a while, I’ll find brilliance in between those crossword puzzle books and stacks of Bibles.

I always feel kind of sad for the authors of those books who spent months and years pouring their hearts out onto these pages, only to have their art end up being sold for a buck and six with tax.

I bought six books today –two of them are memoirs (which we all know I love) — including this one by David Halberstam as well as Mike Wallace’s memoir.

I hate the idea that simply because these books were published three years ago, they are no longer readable. Haven’t we learned by now that new isn’t always good?
