    Any way Foyles might consider opening a US branch, say in the SC Kansas metropolis of Wichita? Looks like another great haul you've got there.

    I though you already had this. I'm sure I remember asking you about it a year or so back.

    Anyway, for me:

    • To A God Unknown, John Steinbeck
    • The Log From The "Sea Of Cortez", John Steinbeck

    Close to finishing my Steinbeck collection now. :)

    I doubt it, this one only hit my radar screen recently. Perhaps you're mixing it up with 'Silence' or 'Scandal' by the same author? Or perhaps I did a while back?

    Everything Is Illuminated - Some dude (Hardcover $1 at the library--was a steal)

    Gosh, I'm poor. Back to the library I go.

    Yes, perhaps Silence. I've been toying with buying The Samurai for well over a year now since nobody else browsing my Borders seems to want it. The Peter Owen Modern Library edition - those dark covers with olive slats that are a bit spooky.

    Those covers are probably my favourite amongst contemporary publishing and Peter Owen also have one of the best catalogues. I've discovered a number of favourite authors after those distinctive covers caught my eye...


    In book buying news:

    The Futurological Congress - Stanislaw Lem

    I went to have a look at them again and wondered where I'd got the idea they were olive slats when they were nothing of the sort. Then I saw Anna Kavan's Sleep Has His House:

    You are not the only one. I hit the salvation army. Also, you can get some ok deals from Amazon.com - and get used books - if you have the patience to wait. :confused:
