We ended up at the South Portland Library fall book sale, and loaded up a bag. Between the book sales at South Portland and the local Providence Library, I’ve just acquired the following:

  • Arthur C. Clarke / Rendezvous With Rama
  • J.R.R. Tolkien / The Hobbit
  • Ben Bova / Mars
  • Richard C. Hoagland / The Monuments of Mars
  • Billy P. Glass / Introduction to planetary geology
  • T. A. Heppenheimer / Colonies in Space
  • Gen. James H. Doolittle / I Could Never Be So Lucky Again
  • Richard Curtis / Ralph Nader’s Crusade
  • Tracy Kidder / The Soul of a New Machine
  • Otto P. Schinnerer / Beginning German
  • Motorola / MC68000 16-bit Microprocessor User’s Manual

All for about three dollars.

And as a late birthday present, Ben gave me The 9/11 Commission Report, inscribed with the note:

To Greg,

This read is “whimisically delightful… a light hearted romp.”


Awesome. Thank you Ben!

You planning on burning that German book for the sheer irony of it?
