More Book Scouting – Florida Style

Okay, so this first photo isn’t book scouting.  Once in a while to have to cool your heels in the sand and water and look for shells!

That’s the beauty of Florida book scouting.

Our book scouting took us to the lovely Cape Coral, Florida public library where they were holding a Friends of the Library Sale.

We joined the line…

20150423_152255_resizedThere were about 10,000 books offered at the sale.  Many of the books were newer (not the vintage era books we seek), but we did find a few.  Here is a sampling of books we brought back from Cape Coral…

An early printing of the first edition of “The Grapes of Wrath.”

We spotted this lovely old car parked nearby beneath the shade trees…a 1921 Model “T” — in close to original condition!

It was the best old thing we’d seen all day (besides each other…haha).

The Yacht Club  “Boat House Bar” had lovely views, outdoor seating and live music.
