This morning I went to the library's book sale and found several books I wanted. But, my number one find was David McCullough's The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris. Snatched it up!
I saw a segment on the author and this book on TV a few months ago. I want to say it was on 60 Minutes. Anyway, he was in Paris, talking about the Americans who came to Paris in the 1800's to study everything from art to medicine. At the time, I made a mental note that I wanted to read this book. But, I never thought I would be able to buy it for 50 cents!
Gotta love a great bargain! Plus I got some other good books on historic houses and interiors. More books for the research shelf.
