I have some downtime between jobs today, so I came to the library for the free internet and a place to be. They have a used book sale going on, with the books half-price, so paperbacks are $.25 each. I got through the whole place and only got four paperbacks: two old Pelican Books (not quite cool enough to be Penguin Books?) for Jeopardy research, a collection of Asimov non-fiction essays, and L’Engle’s A Swiftly Tilting Planet. I might already have a copy of that (I want to re-read the series in the near future).
So just four books, and only $1. That’s quite good discipline for me. I’m going to try to complete the cycle by removing at least that many books from my shelves to make space.
