The Mennonite Encyclopedia, Volume II: D-H. Scottdale: Herald, 1956.

The Mennonite Encyclopedia, Volume III: I-N. Scottdale: Herald, 1957.

I bought Volumes I, IV, and V of The Mennonite Encyclopedia over a decade ago at a conference at a steep discount ($15.00 apiece when they are normally $85.00) because they each had a few damaged pages. I’ve been meaning to complete my set since then, but there were numerous other book purchases that took priority since admittedly I rarely consult the volumes I had. But they look so pretty on the shelf!

I finally decided to complete my set when I received some money from my grandfather’s estate. He was very interested in Mennonite history, thus I think he would appreciate the purchase.

Bought on amazon.com.

Silverman, Matthew. Swinging ’73: Baseball’s Wildest Season. Guilford: Lyons, 2013.

I bought this book from the National Baseball Hall of Fame bookstore during my visit to Cooperstown on Monday. It’s a signed copy. I am intrigued by 1970s pop culture in general and am especially intrigued by the 1973 baseball season because the Mets won the pennant that year, so Silverman’s book caught my eye immediately.
