Yet another reason I love Baltimore, please meet Book Thing.
I am a poor grad student and places like Book Thing in the neighborhood of Charles Village are why I have complete faith in humanity. Completely FREE BOOKS. Every weekend, just walk in, browse, read, sort, and leave all without paying a dime. Impressive, right? I walked in there last saturday and walked out with some great finds, The Rand McNally Atlas, which I serendipitiously opened to Baltimore, Maryland. I believe that is what superstitious people call “a sign”. And yes, I am superstitious. The Complete Works of Homer and a biography about a young woman in China. All beautifully aged, all greatly appreciated by this girl. I love you, Book Thing, and I will be back!
