I am in the habit picking up used books here and there that either look interesting or may be possible be interesting to some else. While gryphons_hole and I were in Omaha, we went to a little Japanese store. It is called Aki Oriental Gifts. One of the things that they have there are used books and video tapes. I picked up a couple of episodes of the manga 孔雀王, a book on letter writing and an interesting looking book called 過越しの祭 by 米谷ふみ子. If there is any one out there that might be interested in this book, let me know and I will send it off to you.
