Hi,

There is another used bookstore by ShopRite. However the one in Meta Rose is the BEST! Also, before my son went down to Seward, he worked for Pataya; if you like Thai food; this is the best I've ever had.

I'll have to check into the one at ShopRite...but yes, the Meta Rose bookstore is a delight - with a plethora of books for the size of store it is. Prices were nothing to complain about as well

According to that link you can transport prohibited firearms into Canada (this includes handguns) provided you have the appropriate documentation filed in advance of you arriving at the border. Everyone always says you can't take handguns but that Canadian site seemed to say you could if you had your ducks in a row.

Be a bummer tho if they drove all the way to the border and turns out they can't bring it in country. Then what do ya do? Turn around and drive to the nearest post office and mail it to Rance thats what.

I'm used to paying $3 to $6 for used paperbacks. If collecting say my forgotten realms I haved paid up to $10 for a paperback in good condition. Does she rank in these prices or lower/higher?

I bought a hard back copy of The Reagan Diaries for $10 in great condition, though they were giving away It Takes a Village for free so I'm not sure if that helps....

Seriously, I think most the books we bought which were considerable the day we went in, were between 3-5 dollars. Good selection I thought.
