“The Hang of It" is a short story by J. D. Salinger, first published in the July 12 1941 issue of Collier's magazine. It’s a commercial tale of a soldier who just can't seem to get "The Hang of It". The positive ending to the story was fitting for the country's upcoming involvement in World War II and popular with the magazines of the time. It was reprinted in the 1942 & 1943 editions of the Kit Book for Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines by Consolidated Book Publishers, Inc. It was the first appearance of Salinger in a book. Our copy is a 1943 edition on wartime paper in very nice condition. It is housed in a new archival box. $125 #kitbook #socobooks #usedcollectibleunique #southcongressbooks

“Putting yourself out there is hard, but it's so worth it. I don't think anyone who has ever spoken out, or stood up or had a brave moment, has regretted it. It's empowering and confidence-building and inspiring. Not only to other people, but to yourself.” #MeganRapinoe The power of women is without end. #socobooks #usedcollectibleunique #southcongressbooks #carrynation #sportsillustrated #robertlewistaylor #vesselofwrath

Great post by @crystalhartranft along with the photo of us standing proud in the face of adversity...we mean the construction next door, of course! Thank you, Crystal! ・・・ I had such a great time exploring @socobooks today in #austintexas I grabbed a couple of their collectible books to bring home. What kind of work trip would this be if I didn’t check out an #independentbookstore ??? . #socobooks #southcongressbooks #usedcollectibleunique girl #read #brunette #texas #austintexas #atx #independentbookstore #bookstore #rarebooks #usedbooks #readbooks

Thanks for your kind words, @hfbclub, and we love that you stop in whenever you’re in Austin! @get_repost ・・・ I love this bookstore so much. Never come to Austin without stopping by @socobooks. Look at how amazing the cover is on this UK first edition of the book that blew my mind wide open all those years ago. 😍 #zenandtheartofmotorcyclemaintenance #robertpirsig #SEJNES #socobooks #southcongressbooks #usedcollectibleunique

Austin seems to think it’s spring already, so we’re going with the flow with these beautiful German plant plates...we have loads of gorgeous book (and other) ephemera! #socobooks #southcongressbooks #usedcollectibleunique

“A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation . . . A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.” #HenryMiller #socobooks #southcongressbooks #usedcollectibleunique #tropicofcancer #tropicofcapricorn #blackspring
