The Book Fair hours are as follows:
Thursday (July 23) & Friday (July 24) Hours: Noon-8PM
Saturday (July 25) & Sunday (July 26) Hours: 10AM-6PM.
The Newberry Library is located at 60 West Walton Street in Chicago and additional information can be obtained on the internet at www.newberry.org
And yes, shamelessly copied from last year's post, with updates to the dates.
But I should be able to get there Thursday or Friday late afternoon, and, I hope, Sunday morning for half-price day.
Again, the goal is to come home with fewer books than I donated.
I only made it to the Chicago/Illinois books & the Classics/Fiction, so I'll need to go back to check out the other rooms!
ETA: also a 1950 Jonathan Cape edition of Elizabeth Bowen's To the North and a large bound spiral handout from a Newberry Genealogy seminar: "It Didn't All go Up in Flames: Exploring Pre-Fire Chicago at the Newberry." It's got to be at least 100 pages of examples of resources at the Newberry of Chicago pre-Fire documents.
I think I got all the other Trollope novels, plus his biography of Thackeray, plus his autobiography.
I was absolutely shocked that I got out of there for under $100. But I'm planning to go back on Sunday morning for half-price day . . .
I guess I'll spend tomorrow morning cataloguing my haul!

I picked up the brochure for the fall seminars and they're doing that one again, if you're interested.
I'm going back Friday with friends so I'll grab a brochure.
Some of mine have that little sticker as well. I left behind quite a few others, having already read the Palliser and Barsetshire novels, which were there in abundance, along with quite a few more that I've already read or already own.
Of course, one could probably spend the rest of one's reading life reading nothing but Trollope! Talk about prolific! And with a full time job on top of that. I've always been impressed by that.
>12 lilithcat: One of the Trollopes, The Fixed Period, is a revised & corrected edition from the original manuscript at the University of Michigan, and published by University of Michigan Press. It's also Trollope's only science fiction, set in the year 1980. It should be an interesting read.
I was having a little bit of buyer's remorse but spent the afternoon with the exquisite La Belleza de lo Real and I'm cured.
