December 3 - United Way booksale, UVic

Another round today, by donation this time. Picked up a few kids' books, plus some of the usual:
  • Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Kafka: Toward a Minor Literature (because I think it's time for me to do some concentrated DG reading)
  • Joe Garner, Never Fly Over an Eagle's Nest ("A true story of courage and survival during British Columbia's early years" - a self-published classic, and the first one I've ever seen NOT autographed by Garner)
  • Joe Garner, Never Under the Table ("A story of British Columbia's forests and government mismanagement")
  • Richard Jefferies (ed. Colin McKelvie), Beloved Land: A Richard Jefferies Anthology
  • Des Kennedy, The Garden Club and the Kumquat Campaign (a novel about a thinly veiled Hornby Island and Clayoquot Sound, here "Upshot Island" and "Kumquat Sound")
  • Society & Natural Resources, vol. 19, #s 1-10, 2006 (eco-policy geek alert!)
  • Judith Williamson, Decoding Advertisements: Ideology and Meaning in Advertising
Seriously, how can one not get excited about articles in Society & Natural Resources like "US National Security Discourse and the Political Construction of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge"? Or maybe you prefer "Structural and Narrative Reconstruction of Representations of 'Environment,' 'Nature,' and 'Ecotourism'"? OK, OK, what about "The Values and Vulnerabilities of Metaphors within the Environmental Sciences"?

What, nobody else gets excited about these titles? Really?
