Hurry! You Have T-Minus Three Hours To Get Your Dog-Eared Copies of Robert Ludlum, Tom Clancy (and Lots of Great Stuff).
|Got lunch plans? Change 'em.|
In any event, the Friends of San Francisco Public Library is hawking all of these treasures -- and, quite honestly, a lot of really great stuff -- for a buck a book at the Mail Library at 100 Larkin (at Grove). You've got until 3 p.m.; if you've got even a remotely curious taste in literature and a few bucks to spend, you will walk away happy (or with a Scandanavian cookbook -- wow, herring again!).
The volunteers present told us they hope to raise $1,000 or more for the library -- and, really, how much can you complain when the books cost a dollar. Okay, there were Dr. Phil books there. Fair enough. But we also noticed I.B. Singer, James Joyce, and other authors you should read -- or will at least impress people who glance at your bookshelf.
