The Complete Peanuts, Charles M. Schulz, comic strips printed in two volumes placed on a shelf at the checkout counter of my local library now has a new home. I like it when I find a donated book of interest and buy it because it helps support our library system. Now I have another set of books to add to my collection.
Just bringing these books home today prompted me to find my old Snoopy doghouse. It still had the pennies I dropped in it decades ago.
