Yes, we have no money. Yes, we're selling off large portions of our much vaunted pop culture library. BUT...that doesn't mean we aren't also still adding to it when we can. Here, for example, is a book I saw once and only once before---in the basement of Kidd's Book Store in downtown Cincinnati in 1972. They had one copy. I looked at it. I coveted it. But...for some reason I passed on buying it. Never saw it again outside of ads in the back of FM.
Cut to 2011. A couple weeks back I was checking info on a different book on Amazon and lo and behold, I ran across a copy of Denis Gifford's long lost Karloff book...for three cents! THREE! As in 1...2...3: 3! So...adding the required postage of $3.99 still set me back a tad more than the buck fifty it would have cost me back in '72 but meet the newest...and perhaps longest overdue...addition to Booksteve's Library!
