I bought books!

So I had twelve dollars of credit at one of the local book dealers here in town, Bogey’s Books. This isn’t the best used bookstore in town. The owner doesn’t know where anything really is and he isn’t the nicest guy, definitely needs to work on his customer support skills. Diana and I (Hi, Diana!) recently found another local bookstore in town, right next to the Co-Op. Sweet Briar books, was a nice little bookstore, the proprietor of the store was friendly and helpful, she was able to help with all of our questions. The only trouble we had was with some dick customer who felt that he could say whatever he wanted to whoever he wanted. I wanted to use a brick on his head, Diana, always the wiser, dissuaded me. We bought a couple of cook books and then moved on…

Back to Bogey’s, I had 12 dollars of credit and I wanted to get as many books as possible. I originally had planned to pick up a copy of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged but they only had a mass market copy that I wasn’t willing to pay 4.80 for. I ended up in their sci-fi/fantasy section, where I found a number of the books that are on my immensely long list of books to read, one of which I got for 50 cents! Score! I grabbed Foundation, Rendezvous with Rama, Wit’ch Fire, and Childhood’s End. I took them up to the register and he totaled me up, it came to 12 dollars and 70 odd cents. I had about 12 dollars and 60 odd cents in credit. He looked at me, I looked at him and he said good enough. I don’t know why I’m so excited about getting these books, my backlog only continues to grow. That list to the right, the one that lists maybe 7 or 8 books, is only the beginning of a very long list that has no real end in sight…

In other news, there is no other news for now! Of course things are happening but I’m not going to post them until something happens.
