  1. A read a book about Julia Child a few years ago that referred to MFK Fisher a lot so I imagine the book about her will be interesting.

  2. That is certainly a nice haul.

  3. What a lovely haul! Sadly, I've been trying to get my book buying under control, at least until I get through the scads that I already have. Love these posts because I can live vicariously through you. :)

  4. Wow...nice mailbox!!
