to oprah from bookbabie

In my recent web wanderings I stumbled across BookFinder.com,a great site to go to when you are looking for that certain book and you don’t want to just Google it and get a million useless hits. Is there a book you remember reading as child with your mom before bed that you’d like to track down? Or maybe you need a gift for, let’s say your good friend Oprah. I found a nice first edition, signed copy of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s, The Great Gatsby for only $55,000. It was owned by Warren Baxter who starred in the silent movie version of the film in 1926, hence the high price, but hey, the divine Ms. O is worth every penny! Interesting site for the bookishly inclined.
