Local book sale. I managed to get out the door for under $25. I think I did okay.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Both the paperback and the Kindle version of The Quiet Earth by Craig Harrison. The movie of the book was made in 1985 but I didn't get to watch it until the early 1990s. I have been looking for the book for many years (it was published in 1981 and reprinted in 1986). It must have only had a small print number each time as the movie and book were probably only aimed at the New Zealand market. In the last few years copies of the orginal book have been sold for several hundred dollars each.

It was republished last month for the first time in 27 years.

Died yesterday, Australian time. She had incurable cancer of the mouth so we had her put to sleep. She would have turned 15 later this year.

I lost a cat to a prolonged, worsening illness towards the end of last year. She was about 15, too. My deepest condolences.
