I am totally phoning todays prompt in. And I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to get to that point!
I don’t think books being out of print is as big of a deal as it used to be. Because with the various book finding communities online it’s easy to find books now in a way that it never was before. And even when you can’t remember much about a book there are communities which can tell you what it was.
Seriously I once posted on one that as a teenager I’d read a bookof my Dad’s about what if JFK had survived being shot and it had a gray cover with the title in red. I might have remembered a bit more but it wasn’t more than that. Yet within a very short period they were able to tell me that it was called Promises to Keep and was by George Bernau. And then Amazon marketplace to the rescue and I had a copy.
I’ve not re-read it yet but it’s on my shelf waiting.
