UNFORSEEN FIND

In a desperate attempt to make sure we have enough room in the U-Haul for, oh, I dunno, our bed? R and I re-opened all the boxes of books we'd already packed to re-evaluate the "book situation." Because no one but no one needs to drive 11 boxes of books across the country, seriously.

Anyway, as I was packing up the 'donate' pile i took another look at this copy of John Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath and realized that it's an original 1939 edition. Which, as R looked up, would be worth $4500 with its dust cover (don't get too excited, we don't have the dust cover). So, yeah, we made room for it in the 'keep' box.
