Wild Releases #747 & #748

There was an awesome book sale in Indiana, Pa., today, and it was lovely weather for a drive, so I hopped in the car and off I went. After indulging my book-buying urge, I headed downtown to explore Jimmy Stewart's hometown. There are commemorative plaques all over Philadelphia Street noting where Jimmy Stewart's father's hardware store was, Jimmy's favorite restaurant, Jimmy's favorite water fountain, etc. Jimmy, himself—or rather a statue of him—stands outside the Indiana County Courthouse. I left "Watership Down," by Richard Adams, at the base of the statue.

Just down the street was the Indiana Free Library, where I left Jane Green's "Bookends" on the steps leading up to the front door.
