The Friends of the SF Public Library Spring Book Sale is underway at Fort Mason. It's all about browsing & serendipity. Opening a book at random on the performing arts table, I saw a photo of a 1969 Meredith Monk performance in the Guggenheim Museum. Prices are $1, $2 & $3, though the collectibles area is selling a 1st U.K. edition of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for $275. I felt a bit lame spending just $5 while everyone else was going up to the registers with shopping bags full of loot. Volunteers continually stock the tables, & prices drop to $1 or less on Sunday.
