Below are the diary entries for June 10, 2007.
We went to stock up on books today... it is less than two weeks before the trip and we're getting down to the last preparations. One of the things we still needed to do was to get books to read. Because we'll be away for eight weeks, we can't take library books, but we all like to read a lot.
This afternoon, we went to the "Book Thing of Baltimore" (www.bookthing.org), a book exchange opportunity here in Baltimore. People are encouraged to take as many books as they want, and leave books they don't want anymore. Frank and Mark both got piles of books; Nicoline and I each got a couple ourselves, but not quite that many.
