Marvelous Library

Yesterday morning, I was walking across East 7th Street, when I saw this array of abandoned books:

Abandoned books.

Why would someone lug these books all the way to this spot and not put them into the dumpster, I wondered? They probably had trouble lifting them.

This morning, I passed by again, in the rain:

Abandoned books in the rain, and a chair.

This time, someone added this sign:

This sign.

So these books were dumped here by a neighbor of Felix Caro, local book hoarder!

She describes the pile as "a marvelous library" — let's take a look!

Dog Soldiers.

Desktop Publishing.

Microsoft Word 4.0.

Extreme Remedies.


The problem now is, with the dumpster in the way, the Sanitation Department workers won't be able to cart these books away to the dump!
