So many books, so little time in a beautiful Vermont bookshop

The solitude of a rural used book store in Plainfield, Vermont. The Country Bookshop on Mill Street is a feast for the restive mind.

Here are some of the titles I picked up for a song this past weekend.

Michael Grant, Julius Ceasar

Luciana Ferrara, The Treasures of the Borghese Gallery

Charles Mackay, LL. D. Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

James Bruce Ross & Mary Martin McLauglin, The Portable Medieval Reader

Ian Stewart, Nature's Numbers

and my favorite Boethius, The Consolation of Philosophy.
