Comments for Where Have All the Books Gone?
I have to admit that we spent most of the weekend lazing around the house. Today we decided to get out and do something. We decided to head into Dublin for lunch and then to Pleasanton to go to a book store.
Lunch went well. We went to Burger King and afterwards while Sean was playing on the equipment, Harriet and I ducked out to Michael's to purchase the art lamp I need to paint at night. They were having a sale and I found a perfectly sized one that will work in our dining room.
Then it was time to pop over to a book store. Unfortunately it had closed. We looked it up later on line and they had closed their Pleasanton branch because the rent was raised beyond what they could pay. It's always so sad when a bookstore is forced out.
So we thought we'd just take the 680 down to Fremont to Half Price Books. Unfortunately they've moved to a larger site! I knew a new location had opened but I hadn't realized it was a replacement to the old site. Also, I had no idea where the new location is (it happens to be near Fry's).
Defeated in our desire to go to a used book store, Ian took us to Borders. At least it was where we expected it to be and it was open. Sean got a Teen Titans coloring book; Ian got a Terry Ratchet book (Nanny Ogg's Cookbook) and I got the latest in the Amelia Peabody series.
