February 23 - SMUS book sale

A charity book sale at the alma mater, my old high school:

Softcovers for a buck each:
  • John Brockman, ed., What We Believe But Cannot Prove: Today's Leading Thinkers in Science in the Age of Certainty
  • Holly Morris, ed., A Different Angle: Fly Fishing Stories by Women
  • Bernd Heinrich, Winter World: The Ingenuity of Human Survival
  • Susan Sontag, Against Interpretation
  • Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses
  • Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone, Slightly Chipped: Footnotes in Booklore
And hardcovers for two bucks each:
  • Roland Barthes, The Eiffel Tower, and Other Mythologies
  • Roland Barthes, Empire of Signs
  • David Suzuki and Wayne Grady, with art by Robert Bateman, Tree: A Life Story
Nine quality books for twelve bucks. What's not to like?

And clearly, my interests are becoming more pronounced all the time....
