Book #49: 50 Book Challenge 2012

Pure Sea Glass - Richard LaMotte

This was fascinating.  I was searching for another book in our library's database (Sea Glass, Anita Shreve, my #50), and came across this nonfiction exploration of sea glass by a local author from our Chesapeake Bay area.  It also gives an overview of the history of glassmaking, which I found intriguing.  This book is packed with lovely, glossy, detailed pictures, and descriptions of common and rare sea glass.  It makes we wish I hadn't thrown or given away so much of my collection over the years (yes, shameful).  I had some purple and pink pieces and those are no longer easy to find.
