What is Ambler's Coffin for Dimitrios doing here? Unless it is a reference to an okay book design for mystery novels. As for the rest of the lot, it is off to the Strand Bookstore to get a nickel each for them. (maybe keep the Vitrivius)
Arnel Manago

Send me some! haha

Man... I want so many of those. :P

Man...I want none of those...

I read Elisa Parhad's book, New Mexico, A Guide for the Eyes. It is a good book to have whether one has any plans of going to the state or not. It is not a run of the mill travel book, rather it is a sort of cutural history book on some of the lessor known facts about the magical land. Sumptuous photos and clean page design also make this book worthy of coffee tables everywhere.

how would an ordinary person (like my self) get sent this many books?

Interesting list of titles here. I'd like a few of them myself. I'd really like a few of those...
