I love Dover Thrift Editions!! Sixty books; a hundred bucks. I’ve got enough books for each of my classes! WOOT!
I got twenty copies each of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Orne Jewett’s Country of the Pointed Firs. I’m not sure if I’m going to use Huck Finn this year (I’m making a huge admission here when I tell you that I’ve not yet read it…), but I’m definitely going to read A Christmas Carol and Pointed Firs in both my freshman and senior classes – with different focuses, of course, but still.
I may not get reimbursed for this purchase, but I don’t really care. A hundred bucks is a pretty small investment to make for the kind of security I feel that I’ve got BOOKS!
