I Heart Chicago
May 15, 2012
After a good day of novel reading and cafe lounging, I ended up at the Salvation Army not far from my house. At the thrift shop, anything can happen. You could find the first artist print of a fairly popular American painter. Or you could spend a couple hours sniffing dust and Febreeze and find nothing. I’ll let you decide what kind of day it was–Check out all the books I found. Guess how much?

Faust by Goethe
The Sorrows of Young Werner by Goethe
Exile and the Kingdom by Camus
