Guess what I priced today? A copy of John Hoffman's The Art and Science of Dumpster Diving, the book reviewed in The Tightwad Gazette II. I had never seen a copy before. It had a big crease in the cover, and that would normally mean recycle, but in this case I thought it was worth making an exception. Actually, Dollygirl noticed it already sorted into a basket of kids' books. Um, no. The cover does look a bit cartoonish, but the language and subject matter are definitely adult, as in, frequently offensive. But I'm sure someone will snap it up.
What I brought home:
Clouds of Witness & The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club, by Dorothy L. Sayers: a bind up of two Lord Peter mysteries
The Decorative Gift Boxes, by Jane Thomson: a book of punch-out paper boxes
The Nothing Album: an oversize hardcover book of blank paper, with its 1970's dust jacket still intact. Seriously. I can think of at least ten things to use it for. Or it would make a fun gift.
This is the regular-sized version:
