"Well, you do have eclectic taste."

A jolly shout-out to C & M Books of Anchorage, AK, my most recent favorite used book store, where the proprietress greeted me with the above evaluation of the books I queued up to buy. Last Sunday I spent several hours there, poring over the shelves and piles and boxes of books. This is one of those fabulous places of considerable character, where there seem to be an endless supply of unexpected treasures silently pleading to be discovered. C & M Books also houses a formidable collection of aviation-themed coffee mugs. If you're in the neighborhood, do yourself a favor and drop in.

Well, after dutifully clicking on al of the links, i'd most definitely agree with the assessment and title of this post.

Only you Darrell would get off the bus/train after being on a cruise liner and head off to the closest unique bookstore in Anchorage. while you may not have the nose to root out a grizzly or elk, no tome is safe from you in the wild!
