Economic and Community Development Director Trivia - Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett is my favorite book, and I own a first edition printing of it.

I have to confess I haven't read the book yet (please don't tell anyone). I see you have a copy laying around for me to borrow, though.

I've got a copy you can borrow, too, John, if Luke is unwilling to let his go astray. And I'll confess I started to read it several months ago but have not finished it yet.
