A kind of interesting book:

It was first published in 1950 and this mass-market paperback edition is from 1959. It's not anything in particular that makes it special; it's just interesting to see what kind of books people were reading then and how paperbacks looked (and smelled and felt). For better or for worse, they just don't make them like this any more. And no back-cover review ever mentions canasta (what even IS canasta?)!

There is a lot more to books than the ideas in them. So don't go throwing them away just because you got the e-book! Give them to me!!!
