Purchased a 136-year-old book at a flea market in Quebec. Looks pretty interesting (it’s about/by a priest who lived during the time of the Civil Constitution of the Clergy under Napoleon in France).

WEEDED

I need shelf space, and these books drew the short straws. I’ll be hanging onto the last two Lord of the Rings until I read them, but the rest are going “bye-bye” right quick.

Arrivederci.

WEEDED

I’m gonna eventually read the final three Dune sequels, so they’re not technically weeded yet, but in light of how diminished the returns of Dune Messiah and Children of Dune are, the likelihood of them engaging me enough to keep them isn’t too good.

Arrivederci.
