Auguste Reading to Her Daughter
by Mary Cassatt
Reading women were a favorite subject matter for painter Mary Cassatt.
All the paintings on this page are by her.
I've spent a little time inventorying the books in my basement.
Young Lady Reading
As Henry Thoreau once said:"I have now a library of nearly 900 volumes over 700 of which I wrote myself--"
I imagine he meant he had 700 unsold copies of one of his own books and a few by some other authors. I am in a similar position.
I've also checked on which of my books are still available to purchase from other places.
If you are looking at this page on a computer you can see a column over on the right with links to books I've written. I've recently updated that so most of the links should work.
There are a few places you can buy the books.
One good source is my Etsy Shop. I have copies from the original print runs that I will be glad to sign and send you.

The other is C&T Publishing's search page about MOI
Last time I looked they have 14 books available. Some were originally published by the Kansas City Star Quilt Division and are from the original print runs.Others that C&T published over the years are print-on-demand (meaning they print a darn good edition when you order it.)
Reading Le Figaro
Some of the books like Clues in the Calico are completely out of print
(can't find a POD or an eBook edition)
but it's not that outrageously priced as a used book online.
