Ahh, materialism

The weather today is perfect - neither really hot nor cold, although a bit on the warm side, with a good breeze. On my way back from the post office - where I sent two CDs and one card to British Columbia, California and Ohio for a total of $3.80 - I stopped in at Macondo books and found a whole bunch of good stuff on sale used (but good condition) for half price. I got five of those nice new Philip K. Dick trade paperbacks (Confessions Of A Crap Artist, The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch, Solar Lottery, Clans Of The Alphane Moon and Eye In The Sky) and Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, all for about $60.
