Not sleepy. This could be a problem. [Jul. 13th, 2009|10:51 pm]
The fabulous emerdavid gave me a guided tour of Uncle Hugo's looking for classic Sci Fi. I have been feeling left out of an era. I was pleased to note I had read all the books of two or three of his suggested authors. Not too shabby I guess.
But now I have many new authors to explore. It didn't even set me back too much as they are all dead as far as I can tell. No new copies of anything he suggested. I did get a Niel Gaimon I had missed somehow and two graphic novels for the boy. I think the three new things cost as much as the other 15.
I may or may not post what I think of them as I read them.

This is one of my cardinal recommended strategies. As more and more of the best ever is only obtainable unpredictably from the used shelves, you take your budget and a reliable counselor, and try your luck.

As the whole trip was at your instigation, I am glad you still hold with the strategy.
