Weekend Reading: Oh. Right. You can borrow books

bombsDo you take the Wall Street Journal?  On Saturday?  We didn’t think so. Costs a packet. Do you remember that reading the WSJ is one of the things you can do with your Mercantile Library membership?  It goes up on the stand every day.  One of our members, a lawyer who reads and reads and reads came in this week to borrow a couple of our Henry Greens.  He had read the Journal’s review of Lara Feigel’s new book about writers in London during the War.  (You can read that too.  Just like we did.  It’s on the stand over by the Walnut Street windows.)  We’ll buy the Feigel book because it sounds great, but you don’t need to wait for that.  You can pitch into the Henry Greens with our lawyer member.  Or move over to the Graham Greenes.  Or the Elizabeth Bowens (lots of those).  Or Rose Macaulay.  All in the Feigel book.  All in the collection here.  All borrowable.  Probably not available in e-editions.  But we’ll be happy to dust them for you.
