Most branches of the Greater Victoria Public Library leave little carts near the lineups for patrons checking out books. There's rarely much of interest to me there, but once in a while... well, honestly, how can I be expected to leave behind Jon Tuska's seminal 600-page tome The Filming of the West: The Definitive Behind-the-Scenes History of the Great Western Movies -- Illustrated?

Even with the over-amped title, and with the super-fan's devotion rather than the analyst's perspective (as reviewer John Cawelti put it), this is a great chunk of useful background to add to the shelves. (Worth to me rather more than the $2.50 I paid, and AbeBooks agrees with me.)
