    Will do, but bear in mind I love Dan Brown. That oughta tell ya something.

    Awesome, this is my favorite Graham Greene. That opening line is worth it alone!

    Well, 300 pages in and I love it (Larsson's first millenium novel). The central mystery is one of the most captivating ever conceived, but I concede that journalist Blomkvist seems to deceipher some clues through luck rather than genuine investigation. His daughter's offhand remark sparking an idea for example. Nonetheless, I'm certainly, at this point, a bit stunned that it could provoke as strong a reaction as hate. The translation is at times a tiny bit clunky, but it's a cracking read so far.

    yesterday i found this on a street of bangkok and bought it for 500 baths or about 15 dollars.

    this transaction feels so good it should be illegal.

    Lovejuice, this is the first time you've ever made me angry. That purchase is a steal, and I'm so jealous I'm practically spitting fire right now.

    just so you know, they are second-handed. some torn and some loose pages, but totally worth it.

    Well, I'm less mad. But for $15, I'm still mad.

    For $15, I would have bought ten of them.

    Which means I should probably just buy it outright. I also want the Far Side Juggernaut.
    ...and the milk's in me.

    And in October, I will most def buy:

    The first book, based on A New Hope was just a total blast to read with a ton of detail & anecdotes & amazing pictures and and and...

    Btw, if anyone can point me in the direction of similarly exhaustingly researched books about specific motion pictures that would be awesome. I've already read Rinzler's Indiana Jones one however.

    I have not.

    Been spending some of my winnings from my fantasy movie league winnings (facebook group). I really only buy movies November-January anymore. Thats when all the deals make it worth it.

    Blu-rays:
    Cloud Atlas
    Edge of Tomorrow
    Elysium
    Enders Game
    Everly
    Punisher: War Zone
    Red Lights
    Sin City 2
    The Drop
    Dallas Buyers Club
    Godzilla
    Kite (2014)
    The November Man
    The Signal
    Transformers 4

    Grand total spent: $30. Some of these are blind buys obviously, so they may be headed to another exchange store, but its tough to pass up on $2 blu-rays!

    Two dollars in a second-hand shop, a bit beat-up. As soon as I picked it up, the guy standing next to me started raving about it.
    Just because...
    Pain and Glory (Pedro Almódovar, 2019) warm
    Street Angel (Yuan Muzhi, 1937) warm
    Look Out, Officer! (Lau Sze-yue, 1990) mild

    The last book I read was...
    Selected Stories by Katherine Mansfield
