    >Wow, that sounds terrific. I hope they find a good buyer. We have something similar-Green Valley Book Fair, near Harrisonburg, VA. Lots of fun-just bring your patience! (It can get very crowded.)

  2. >I was lucky – instead of Rhode Island, I just came from one town over. I lived down the street from the owners' son and his charming dog, Jenny. "Bookmobile," as I called it, has served me well through every stage of life, from my youngest obsessive collection of Roger Hargreaves' books, through my preteen adventures in pulp sci-fi, and into adulthood with the best cookbook selection in New England. I am too big and well-oriented to actually get lost in there anymore (when I was a child, I did so on purpose), but my ability to get figuratively lost remains unchanged.
