    Excellent condition, somewhat dated: 15th Edition, 1988, for $50 :)
    Full simulated-leather binding, gilt-edged pages, dark blue, and a pleasure to look at -- and use.

    OOPS, correction. The Britannica was $15. :eek:

    (The $50 was for a different bargain that I found -- a used Toshiba laptop in like-new condition with fully functional rechargeable battery.)

    I saw the movie for the very first time a week or two ago. It's so dated and there was definitely some holding back. I was so curious about the story behind it all, so I'm so glad I found this book.

    Got all 3 books in almost new condition for a total of about $18. yay!

    I finally ordered the cookbook that Abc told me about long ago called Best Of Mennonite Fellowship Meals by Phyllis P Good.

    Thank you, Abc, for the recommendation. :)

    I picked up Archangel by Sharon Shinn from the library this weekend. It sounds intriguing.
