I’ve bought a book or two (thousand). Nothing really substitutes for the tactile experience of looking at shelves and shelves of books, handling them and browsing, and the aroma of books, whether ‘just printed’ or ‘aged and slightly musty’. But I’m a long way away from lots of bookshops.
So ABEbooks.com have been a very useful method of purchasing new and used books for the lowest prices.
They send out emails publicising various aspects of the books that are available by the sellers who register with them.
Today this arrived.
Weird Books.
It doesn’t fail to deliver.

Here’s a few examples (I hope the formatting holds up on all browsers):
