No one, and they all know I read Terry Pratchett, no one told me there was A Long Earth hardback in my charity shop for 99p until they had sold it! And I am their Team Leader! :x :x

The local cat shelter charity shop was having a sale of books today - 45p each or 3 for £1. I managed to get two copies of Unadulterated Cat - large format paperback and hardback and a copy of Paul Gallico's The Silent Miaow. I've just realised that the paperback, Unadulterated Cat is a first edition. :D

Anyone in the area of Washington, D.C.: The annual Stone Ridge Used Book Sale (four days, two and a half large gymnasiums filled with books and refilled as books are sold), held every spring for 46 years, will be ended after this year. This year (April 11-14, 2014) will be the very last, they say. I have found some treasures there in the past. I expect to be there this year, along with thousands of other people. (A websearch will find their website.)

Yes, unfortunately for anyone who can't get to the D.C. area. There are some good used bookstores online that are based in Maryland - Second Story Books is one - but the Stone Ridge sale is just a school fundraiser, not a bookstore.
