Central Oklahoma has three Barnes and Noble locations. I had visited the two that were closest a couple of days ago in search of the Nancy Drew bag. Only one of those two stores had the bag. Today, I checked the third store, which is farther away than the other two stores. The third store did not have the bag. This matches what others have reported. Many of the stores do not have the bag.
The trip was not wasted, since I took the opportunity to check one antique shop and two book stores.
Jill at Hazelmere is a UK children's book that remember seeing previously in that antique shop. This time, I decided to buy the book. Since purchasing books from other countries is quite expensive, I decided that this would be a good opportunity to read a book that I would not otherwise purchase. From the synopsis and first few pages, the book sounds like it might be a good story. The book is from the same publisher and set as the UK edition of Mildred Wirt Benson's book, Quarry Ghost, titled Kristie at College in the UK.
The Judy Bolton book, Double Ring, has the four glossy illustrations and is the first printing. I also found two Tom Swift, two Trixie Belden, one Hardy Boys, and one Sandy Steele book. I might decide to read the Sandy Steele book to see what I think of it.
It's always fun to come home with a few books.
