‪I’ve been out & about the past few weekends and here are books #481-485 from the trips.‬  ‪The Fiat 500 book is the first real non-English book in the collection (not counting some Rules of the Road booklets from the Illinois SoS).‬  ‪The photos in Wine Country Trucks of Napa & Sonoma Counties are just gorgeous, and there are some amazing vintage pickups still in use there.

‪📚 Finding mementos of the journeys book take are fun bonuses. A 1991 printing of the road trip book Blue Highways (originally published 1982) took a flight from Knoxville to DC in 1999 and these were left as bookmarks.‬  ‪Last week I found it in a Goodwill in Huntley, Illinois.‬ The Journey Book, Huntley Illinois, Scene Photo, Bookmarks, Road Trip, Printing, Fun, Stamping, Road Trips

‪Books #468 & #469 in the collection from 1968 & 1965 respectively.‬  ‪Yes, that is the infamous Unsafe at Any Speed by Ralph Nader. Likely the most hated book in automobile history, especially if you love Corvairs, but when else has a book been the big story here? Love it or hate it, its importance meant that it was absolutely necessary for us to have a copy and today I found one.
