Late August book buys

A few days in Vancouver and Whistler, very pleasant for the most part, yielded a few things, and then I stumbled across a few today back home again:

Albion Books, August 18
  • Edward Hoagland, The Edward Hoagland Reader ($6)

Book Warehouse, August 18
  • Wally Lamb, The Hour I First Believed ($7.99 -- book club selection for this month)
  • JRR Tolkien, The Hobbit ($16)

Cole's Books, August 25
  • Gordon Hak, Turning Trees into Dollars: The British Columbia Coastal Lumber Industry, 1858-1913 ($3.99 for a fantastic book from the U of Toronto Press, a price explicable only within the mysteries of mass-market retailing
  • Elizabeth May, At the Cutting Edge: The Crisis in Canada's Forests - revised and expanded edition ($4.99, ditto re price)
