(Title half-stolen from Araba's blog.)
Oh my god... I had a shopping spree, this morning. A book shopping spree.
Cooper Library (Clemson's main library) had a gigantic book sale this morning with incredible prices. All hardbacks were $2, all CD's were $2, all paperbacks were $0.50, all magazines were $0.10, and I can't remember the rest but I do know that they were all $2.00 or less.
So I spent $23 or so.
Here's what I got.
Book #1: Encounters: an Introduction to Philosophy
Book #2: Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems
Books #3, #4: Theory of Functions of a Complex Variable, Volumes I & II
Book #5: Analytic Geometry
Book #6: Modern Abstract Algebra
Book #7: Operating System Design: The XINU Approach
Book #8: Operating Systems: Concepts, Policies, and Mechanisms
Book #9: Vector Analysis
CD #1: Kiri Te Kanawa - Exsultate Jubilate (London Symphony Orchestra & Chorus)
and CD #2: Birgit Nilsson - Wagner, Strauss, Verdi, Beethoven (Opera Gala)
Magazines: Mostly Scientific American, one National Geographic.
Now, let me tell a story about how hard it is to pull yourself away from such a book sale:
"One day, Matthew tried to pull himself away from a great book sale. It was absurdly hard. The end."
My suggestion? Try to avoid news of book sales, because once you know about one you will undoubtedly spend lots of money there.
But hey, I actually kinda like what I bought, so there.
