April - some purchases
I've been to a few good stores and picked up a few good books in the last little while, but I've been far too busy to do anything with them so far:
- Matthew Dickerson & Jonathan Evans, Ents, Elves and Eriador: The Environmental Vision of J.R.R. Tolkien ($52.50 from the UVic Bookstore - why do academic books cost so darn much, anyway?)
- Nicolas Dickner, Nikolski ($19.95 at Tanner's Books in Sidney - this year's GG winner for French -> English translated fiction), and
- Ralph Lutts, The Nature Fakers: Wildlife, Science and Sentiment ($15 at the always reliable Grafton Books in Oak Bay).
