Used bookstore in Newport

Posted to What Are You Reading?

I went to a used bookstore in Newport , Rhode Island , i think it was called H. Kelleys used books. It was so humid out i was meandering around the bookstore from the heat almost fainting , not so bad you'd notice. But i loved it there , the books went for about a dollar fifty up to five dollars, i didnt see anything passed about twenty five. I bought anything i could find that looked good. I bought a huge book of Thomas Mann's diaries for twenty five , it was his journal. I bought Goethe's Faust , Hemingway's Nick Adams Stories , Euripedes Orestes , Herman Hesse's Demian , and a Ezra Pound's selected poems for a dollar
It will take me a good while to get through all this ,
