Stamp Collecting
Boy Scouts of America
1993

I couldn’t believe that the date on this book was 1993. The pictures seem to be much older.  Stamp collecting is still a big hobby and there are many more current books on stamp collecting. I am not sure I would add this to the collection, unless there is a current need for scouting material. I hope the scouts have updated this particular book.

And then we have the back cover advertising a subscription to Boy’s Life. I guess the scouts are into some cultural appropriation after they get the stamp collections done.

The Style Guy
O’Brien
2000

O’Brien was GQ magazine’s fashion columnist until 2015. (He evidently blasted GQ in an interview and resigned.) His advice column talked about everything from fashion advice to etiquette.

This particular book hadn’t left the shelves in a decade, so I think we can safely retire it.

PS As I was googling around for the author, I found out that O’Brien passed away this past April.
