35,000 books. How can I pass it up, and it's only about a 30 minute drive. Should be a long drive for Mimi either.devil

Yes, Mimi we should. I am in Kent so halfway isn't that far. I have another online reading pal who lives in Port Orchard. We try to meet up on occasion. Non stop chatter, and I'm not normally much of a chatty kind of person. 35,000 titles. I'll be like a good in a candy factory.

Wow. Just wow, a huge room with books galore. Thankfully I'm only looking for historicals or I might have been there all day. Mimi, they do this twice a year, I think the next time is March and I'd put it on a must list. Got an interesting mix for a whopping total of $8.75. Got a bio on Queen Marie of Roumania, who was a sponsor of the Maryhill Museum in Washington State, and there is quite a display there of her clothes (wedding dress!!) and furnishings, etc. Several indian themed books that could be dogs or good solid historicals. A book on Ireland that's compared to Leon Uris's Trinity. A couple of Gore Vidals, and James Alexander Thoms (he wrote the excellent Follow the River. An omnibus of Susan Howatch's suspense novels. One called Water of Life that has serious potential as a big fat saga. Have a ton of covers to scan and upload.

Let's watch for the next sale in March and call it a date. cheeky

If you've never been to the Maryhill Museum, you should set time. Gorgeous setting along the Columbia River, beautiful old house and filled with tons of art, artifacts and history.  Amazing that all of that is in the middle of timbuktu on the east side of the Cascades.There's also the Maryhill Winery next door for lunch and wine tasting, and the nearby Stonehenge replica.
