“Previously Owned Cars,” I read on the sign. Hmmm. Wasn’t this lot previously called “Used Cars?”
Maybe “Used Books” stores should do the same thing and advertise “Previously Owned Books.” Or better: “Loved Books.” For if you’ve really loved a book, you want to share it with someone.
Wouldn’t it be fun if used books stores were visited by more people?
My husband and I went to Half Price Books the other day. I had a few to sell, and the money I got paid for a new hardback copy of David McCullough’s Wright Brothers. At a very decent price. I hope the people who read the volumes I turned in will love them as much as I have.
