When my friend recommended a children's classic that I hadn't read, Satchkin Patchkin by Helen Morgan, I had to go hunting for it.
The trusty Book Depository had nothing, but I followed the trail to Abe's Books, and, hurrah, there was one copy available, for only $18. 10 days later a thin parcel arrived for me from a small town in the Netherlands. Such a painless purchase, it made me stop and think. The world is getting smaller in so many ways, some of them quite beautiful.
