We Are Chapter 47. Woo-hoo!

It was such an honor and a pleasant surprise for Ron and me when we learned we were featured in Rebecca Rego Barry’s recently published book, Rare Books Uncovered – True Stories of Fantastic Finds in Unlikely Places.



Rebecca interviewed a wide range of booksellers and collectors to ferret out book scouting stories involving serendipity, hard work and sometimes pure good luck — and the result is this entertaining and educational read published by Voyageur Press.  With a foreword by Nicholas A. Basbanes, any book lover will want to add it to their library.



Rebecca interviewed me last year when I shared with her a few of our true book scouting tales. So much has happened over the past year that Rebecca’s work on this book was pushed to the recesses of my mind.  Also, I know there are many booksellers out there with interesting stories to share about their adventures on the book hunting trail, so I knew she would have plenty of material to sift through.

Thus I was blown away when I learned that we are Chapter 47!!


Rebecca Rego Barry is the Editor of Fine Books & Collections Magazine, the most beautiful and informative magazine available on book collecting.  She is a talented writer and I hope this book is a huge success for her.  She has been doing a number of book signings on the east coast, including a recent one at the famous Grolier Club in New York City.

  1. Grammar Police alert! “It was such an honor and a pleasant surprise for Ron and I”… really? Ron and I?

    • Michael,
      Okay, “Ron and Me.” I hope you found joy in correcting me. I am recovering from a ruptured brain aneurysm (perhaps you didn’t read my prior post), and this was my first post since that brief one after my release from the hospital five months ago. I will admit it is difficult for me to focus carefully on details now, so I am not perfect, and neither are my posts. But, one thing that happens after a life-threatening event is the realization of what is important and what is not so important in life. I am grateful for that, because I think it makes me a better person and a happier one.
      I’m sorry if my grammatical error was disturbing to you.
