"... something unexpected always pops up. That's the beauty of book collecting.

Books on local history from Maine to California are worth a look, as are books about the rivers of the world, the lakes and the mountains. I recently found a neat book on West Coast volcanoes from Canada to California.

Sometimes it's a good idea to cruise through my books, read and reread, to make sure I'm not duplicating a subject. There have been a number of neat books written about the Ohio, Mississippi and Missouri rivers, but do I need another?"
