Regular readers of this blog might remember might forays into the world of book selling at the Dublin City Book Fairs. These were always very enjoyable occasions for me, if not always profitable. I miss the buzz of those fairs. But here I am in Seattle now and I shipped my stock of books, not having sold them in Dublin. They have gradually reappeared as I unpack and now they are all lined up in the hallway of our new house. I will soon be offering them for sale again – this time through Amazon. Amazon has various ways of merchandising but I understand that I can make an inventory of my books, then send them off to Amazon, and the rest is up to them, so to speak. Sounds good doesn’t it. Watch this space!

here they are again, some of the old favourites – but note that they are lined up on our nice new floor
One little aside – there has been some talk about the BBC series on Elizabeth Gaskell’s book Cranford. I understand that the programme is now being shown on American television on PBS. I enjoyed watching the series while I was in Ireland. Yesterday I spotted a lovely new edition of the book, now published as a Penguin Classic. And today in my unpacking I found my husband’s old edition of the book. His edition was in fact presented to his father in 1925. So there is a bit of biblio history, if that is the right terminology.
Last Sunday we went to the Bike Expo – a big show here in Seattle, a bike loving community. Of course we had to travel there by bike.
