Lux Mentis, Lux Orbis…rare books, random musings: Are books on the shelf better than stock certificates in a drawer…
Whenever I am unsure as to whether I should buy a certain book resale, I ask myself if I will be willing to live with that book if its resale price does not turn out to be the price for which I had initially hoped. Many times, the answer is yes, because books, monetarily valuable or not, do provide enjoyment, enlightenment, and do furnish a room. 😉

I want to get in the fall spirit and cook pot roast and beef stew and chili. Given the current sunny 70 degree weather and my blooming hibiscus, perhaps I should plan a luau instead.
See you in the stacks!
