The Library of America just sent me ANOTHER book!   

Henry James' "The Sacred Fount" and "The Wings of the Dove".....in one beautiful volume.....but I told them to cancel my membership because I cannot afford $31 per book during these turbulent times...

Welp....I was on the Internet....maybe abebooks....and this ad popped up about an Introductory Offer....


.....They were offering Two Volumes of James Fenimore Cooper ( five novels of Leatherstocking Tales...) for something like $7.....and if I ordered, I could also get a volume of Washington Irving! So I sent them the money and postage and got three beautiful books....

.....NOW you're a member....every six weeks or so they will send you a book....and deduct it from your debit card....if you don't want the book you can send it back....you pay postage, etc....

.....they send you this huge list of books and you can check mark the ones you want and check mark the ones you don't want! But they did send me two books I didn't want. They sent me ONE book that I did want. 

Then my bank changed hands. It got taken over by a new bank. The old debit card was no good and we got a new one. I figured that that would eliminate The Library....but it didn't. They simply sent me a book and billed me. So I told them to forget it. 

I can buy books on abebooks for cheap....although these are nice volumes....but they're $31. 

* oh, I forgot....I DID tell them I wanted that Henry James....

How Subscriptions Work | Library of America


Welp....The Library of America sent me another book!  However this book was one that I had checked off as wanting it!  

It's Western Novels 1940s-1950s.....

It's got ....

The Ox-Bow Incident
Shane
The Searchers
Warlock


I read Shane and The Searchers in the 60s but I never read The Ox-Bow Incident and Warlock....( although I had seen all four of these movies..)

....anyway, I kept it because it's a nice book....and I'm halfway thru The Ox-Bow Incident....
