Go shopping at abebooks! *sigh* I freely admit it, when I shop at abebooks, my inner Gollum breaks free every time: I get the fiery gleam in my eyes and buy and buy and buy and IT’S ALL MINE!!!!!
I’ve ordered three more editions, but, it would seem, all with different texts. How exciting is that? (Okay, to normal people this is probably not at all exciting. To crazy Sandy it tollay IS exciting. Toteliciously exciting, in fact!)
And to cause even more excitement, I ordered three 19th-century guidebooks (The Rhine, Paris, London) yesterday. All of them Baedekers. With those wonderful red covers. *happy sigh* In addition I’ve discovered a great site run by people who collect Baedeker guidebooks: www.bdkr.com.
