July 1980 books read

Anthony Trollope: Is He Popenjoy?
Barbara Pym: A Glass of Blessings
Barbara Pym: The Sweet Dove Died
V. S. Pritchett: London Perceived
Jean Stafford: The Catherine Wheel
Harriet Martineau: Society in America
Jean Stafford: Boston Adventure

Pym, Stafford, and the Martineau were all from the Austin library. I wonder how many of these remain on the shelves after all the growth of administrative personnel and deaccessioning of books. There are two Marteinaus still there: Deerbrook and letters to Fanny Wedgwood. I find that both Pyms are there. There's just one Stafford and it's not either of these.
