Big Gay Vince, bastard, Southpark me

mall, books, & food

Decided to go to the Friends of the Library store today and when I got the Mall I was shocked to see the parking lot almost full. Usually it's a ghost town. Walking into the west entrance I saw it was crowded with parents and kids as it turns out there was some kind of kids pagaent going on. Ack! I had to squeeze my way through. Inside the store I was like a kid in the candy store when I saw some of the new books available. I ended up buying 18 books for a grand total of $5, although one of the books I had bought I found out later I already owned. Doh! Oh well, I'll just donate it back to them. The books I got were:

  • Peter Benchly - "Jaws" (I already owned *sigh*)
  • David Brin - "The Uplift War"
  • Raymond E. Feist - "Magician: Master"
  • Peter F. Hamilton - "The Reality Dysfunction Part 1: Emergence"
  • Dean Ing - "Anasazi"
  • J. V. Jones - "The Baker's Boy"
  • Robert Jordan - "The Eye Of The World"
  • Dennis L. McKiernan - "The Brega Path"
  • Armistead Maupin - "Babycakes"
  • L.E. Modesitt Jr. - "Colors Of Chaos"
  • Fred Saberhagen - "Berserker Kill"
  • R. A. Salvatore - "Dragonslayer's Return"
  • Robert Silverberg - "The King Of Dreams"
  • Michael Swanwick - "The Iron Dragon's Daughter"
  • Paula Volsky - "Illusion"
  • Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman - "Love And War"
  • Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman - "The Magic Of Krynn"
  • Allen L. Wold - "Eye In The Stone"

For lunch was take-out chinese. Doubleplusgood stuff! Dinner was ramen noodles and some BBQ chicken left-over from yesterday.
  • Current Music: Bangles - "Make A Play For Her Now"
Ah, that's part of the upside of the place. Hardcover books cost $0.50, except for a few antique books. Paperback romance books are $0.10 while all other paperbacks are $0.25 There's some magazines, and a few videos and vinyl records as well, but I've never really looked into them.

The downside is that the books available are ones taken out of circulation by the library, plus, books donated for this specific cause. Meaning, there's a lot of crappy books there that have been sitting for a long time without interest from anyone.
Indeed, David Eddings is my second favorite author just behind Mercedes Lackey. Besides the two you mention I also love his Elenium and Tamuli series. It amuses me when looking at the parallels between the two different worlds.

While I only own two of the WoT series as well as one of Goodkind's SoT, I've downloaded many others in both series. Don't you just love WinMX? :o)
