Some recent pickups. Truthfully, I’m up to my eyeballs in reading for work for the next month. But every tunnel needs a light at the end.

I stopped buying books for a while there, but lately I’ve been in heavy, heavy relapse. This doesn’t even include the stacks I brought home from the Journal’s stockpiles, or the special order I just placed at Audreys, which is already starting to come in.Nov 17, 2012
The Value Village on Whyte and 89th was out of control today—they even had a paperback copy of Infinite Jest, which I’ve never, ever seen in a secondhand store before.Sep 8, 2012
