Not a good day for outdoor exploring yesterday (too windy -- again), so I headed to downtown Flagstaff once again. Decided to take a recent accumulation of tree based books to Bookmans. There I would trade those for more reading material.
Surprise. No Bookmans. Sign on a temporary fence in front of what once was a building said that Bookmans will be back in the fall of 2010. From there I headed over to Barnes and Noble to access their WiFi with my iPad. Searching the internet, I found that the roof on Bookmans collapsed due to the weight of snow last January. Guess I will have to drag those books around till next winter when I return to Arizona.
After a couple of hours on B&N's WiFi and having a Chai Latte at Starbucks, I browsed the "three for two books" sale table. Fell for that one. Found three books that were on my list of "should reads". More ballast for Wandrin Wagon.
