My bookshelf at PaperBackSwap thus has a very odd mix of stuff from me (mostly SF and romance, some mysteries and other miscellany), stuff from my older brother's undergrad days with comparative religions and philosophy and his grad school days when he got an urban and regional planning degree, and stuff from my parents' eclectic reading. Oh, and a good sprinkling of children's' books that I and my siblings left there and which never got passed along to other kids. If you're interested,
All that was just to preface a note on the book requested today, Alan Moorehead's The White Nile, in paperback, printed in 1962. The marketing blurb across the top says "The brilliant $5.95 bestseller complete -- 75¢".
