The History of Transportation

Adriel's Used and Out of Print Bookstore

Have you heard? Adriel's family is traveling to Tanzania, Africa to spend time with family. To help aid their finances for this expensive trip, a friend donated hundreds of books for Adriel to sell. This friend has been buying used, discarded, and out of print books for over two decades instead of owning a television. His curiosity is as insatiable as Adriel's, so he reads primarily non-fiction with a good sprinkling of novels thrown in. All books are in good to very good condition with minimal markings. Most hardcovers also have their dust jackets still. Over the course of 2018, Adriel will be posting the books, one box at a time, for sale. You can find this week's selection and the stores they're available on below. If Adriel reads a book from the vast selection, she'll review it and post the review along with the week's books for sale.

This week’s selection includes several history books and several books on transportation. I hope you enjoy one of these!

Hello! I’m Adriel Wiggins, wife, mother of three, fur mom, bibliophile, art geek, and all around student. I’ve been on a quest all of my life to learn as much as I possibly can about everything I possibly can. This has helped me tremendously in what eventually became my life’s purpose: to help other people become the best version of themselves. It is in that line that I became an assistant.
