I love ratty old paperbacks like this one. Isn't it beautiful? It was on the counter at my favorite used book store waiting to be tossed into the trash *gasp* when all it really needed was a bit of glue and some tape. The proprietor saw me fondling it and said I could go ahead and take it if I wanted. So I cradled it all the way home and nursed back into reading shape. Hopefully it's not missing any pages . . . ?
