"Dog Days of Summer" Sale from Quaint Book Shop

The Firm First Edition
While I’m not a huge John Grisham fan personally, $175 a nice price for an inscribed first edition of the Firm

Having felt the heat of August dog days here in Asheville since June, this 30% off sale from Quaint Book Shop in Springfield, Ohio caught my eye. (is Springfield the setting for the Simpsons?)

In particular, I liked this nice affordable first edition of Ulysses and the first edition of The Stones of Summer (which I’ve been meaning to read ever since the documentary on this book came out a few years back.  don’t worry, ample reprints of Stones of Summer are also available at a cheaper price).
