something I can never have - maybe
I've been trying to track down a copy of one of my favorite childhood books, The Night They Stole The Alphabet by S. Joslin.
It seems to be out of print, though I can buy a copy from Amazon marketplace for $75 - more than that if I want a copy in decent condition. How much are childhood memories worth? More than I can afford, apparently.
If any of you ever run across this title at a garage sale, used book store, library sale, whatever, I will be forever indebted to you if you pick up the book for me (if it's a reasonable, garage-sale type price).
Can't hurt to ask people to keep their eyes open for me.
