I love #thriftbooks .com. I love the character of gently used books, especially when I get books that students wrote notes in. I hate supporting the corporate book selling giants and indirectly supporting the consumer culture requirements such as the stripping and trashing of books to make room for the next pretty cover. Those poor books!
Anyway- I’ve been wanting to add to both my #Chomsky and #Vonnegut collection. Everything is Illuminated was a charming movie and I felt that I needed some Jonathan Safran Foer in my life (even though I haven’t read Eating Animals yet.) I can’t remember how long I’ve been wanting to read Speak, Memory by #Nabokov. I also purchased some 400 pages of #HarryPotter analysis. Laugh all you want, but I will never get enough of all those mythical creature origins, Latin roots, and learning why #JKR wrote the things that she did. I read Galadriel’s analysis of book 5 YEARS ago and thought it was great. Pardon me, now - I’m about to dive into the analysis of books 1-4.
