On Friday, I volunteered at the Friends of the Springfield-Greene County Library semi-annual book sale. So you might think I would then go on Saturday to the same book sale. But ah, my foes, and ah, my friends, that’s the way one gets too many books.
Instead, I went to the Friends of the Clever Library Book Sale, which is held in the firehouse down there and only has six or seven tables of books. That way, I would self-limit on my purchases.
Oh, how the best laid plans of mice and men and so on. Because I did not take into account that one of those tables might be almost completely filled with Mack Bolan / The Executioner related Gold Eagle titles.
I’ll spare you the individual titles, but amongst the paperbacks I scored:
- 45 Executioner titles.
- 15 Mack Bolan titles.
- 3 Able Team titles.
- 9 Stony Man titles.
- 2 Soldiers of Barrabas (S.O.B.s) titles.
- 2 The Mercenary titles.
- 1 Agents of War title.
- 1 Soldiers of War title.
Eat your heart out, Mr. Kenney.
Additionally, I got some other books:
- Rocket Ship Galileo by Robert Heinlein.
- Science fiction books by William Gibson and Cory Doctorow.
- A collection of “Life is Simple” columns by Jerry Crownover.
- The Tron Storybook
Total cost: $30 with renewal of our Friends of the Library membership.
