Recent Great Buys

Thanks to the help of Newton, I've recently increased my running book collection. Before you think that I burnt a large hole in my pocket in doing so, read on. You can click on the images to read the information on the books. Of course I won't have the time to read them - it'll probably take me 1 year to go thru all of them but the savings I got out of the bargains will allow me to finally buy my dream shoe. Perhaps...

  • Hey, you've got Battle of Mog. I wonder if it's better than Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden. Great book, although the movie's not bad either. Very detailed story telling. Made me feel like I was in the thick of the fire fight with bullets and RPGs wizzing by.
