Scored on this awesome collection of #YoungReaders cloth-bound, hardback books from the #50s and #60s at a local yard sale.
They're mostly #mystery#suspense and #adventure titles.
The fascinating thing about these - and there's always something fascinating about a #scavengerhunt - is that they're from the collections of a group of retired, juvenile hall librarians.
I asked what it was like to work at juvy. Their facial expressions didn't reveal much and were emotionless, which surprised me. I chalked it up to bureaucrats whose original passion for their chosen career becomes dulled over time especially after decades of monotonous work chores. "It was interesting," says the Chicano retiree no younger than his mid 70s in the most unconvincing manner ever. "I did have this one kid who loved all the books you're taking. He wanted to write his own collection of Nancy Drew stories. Said he'd be the best mystery writer in the world. He died a few months after he was released, I heard." Again, he couldn't even convince himself, "It was the saddest thing, yunno." Ok, ok, I decide. I'm not gonna get much out of him in the way of stories. "How much do I owe you?"
"It's one dollar for as many books as you want. We're librarians. We have books coming out of our ears."
Well, then. 😃

"We had been with men, we had let them do what they wanted. But they would never know the parts of ourselves that we hid from them - they would never sense the lack or even known there was something more they should be looking for."
Day 11 of #readwomenmonth was #CoverArt . Not gonna lie, I know we aren't supposed to judge books by their cover, but I am an avid book grabber at book stores on the sole basis that they designed a great, eye-grabbing cover. This was one of them (paired with the fact it was getting awesome online reviews). While some people were a little disappointed in this read, I thoroughly enjoyed it. So my superficialities did not let me down this time! For my full review of this book, scroll back a few posts. I think Emma Cline crushed her debut novel and she should give a bonus to her book designer Liz Cosgrove. Any of y'all have a cover art favorite that was equally as impressive with its writing?
