Lost and Found

You may recall that just ten days ago I decided the copy of The Diary of James Schuyler that I thought I owned was a figment of my imagination. I bought another in The Reading Well Bookstore in Charlottetown.

Tonight, while shifting around some of my belongings, I found six boxes of books hidden away at the back of the closet under the stairs. I have a vague recollection of tucking them out of the way there when we first moved in with the intention of unearthing them when we acquired more bookcases. In the meantime we have acquired more bookcases, but also many more books to fill them…

I’ve only cracked open one of the boxes, but sure enough there was a copy of The Diary of James Schuyler right on top. If there are any Schuyler fans out there who would like to have my duplicate copy, leave me a comment or send me an e-mail. If more than one person expresses an interest in the book, I’ll do a draw for the lucky name.

Update: Several people have expressed an interest in my duplicate copy of The Diary of James Schuyler. I'll keep taking names until the end of the day on Wednesday, then determine who gets the book by drawing a name on Thursday morning.

Sign me up. I hate to see a good book go to waste.

Ohhhh I've come over all weak with jealousy at the thought of uncovering six boxes of books.... that's what I call a treasure trove.

Yeah, isn't it just like discovering buried treasure! Lucky girl. I think I'll go hide a box of books that are very appealing to find later.
