So I had just barely finished putting out a box of Native American history when a ton of biology, programming, and two great big, crisp, clean omnibus editions of The Walking Dead came in, and I wasn't done even sorting those before about thirty books of classical theology came in, and that's to say nothing of the daily oddments like birding books and practically-new fiction and - oh yeah, boxed set of George R. R. Martin hardcovers - so. This is Monday. I reckon we've put out about three hundred books since last Monday. If you haven't been in, you might not have seen the one (or more) that you want....

So back on the subject of Milton, Shakespeare, the history and criticism of English literature - see, the person from whom we got this collection gave us a *very* generous deal on the books, fourteen boxes of them, so we can pass savings on to you. Average price of books I'm putting out right now: $2.95. Come see what treasures you can own for less than the cost of lunch!

Taking a break from putting out dozens of books about Shakespeare, Milton, and the literary scene between them (temporally) to think about a word.

On the cover of a book of found-poems, a blurb says the author has 'astringent intelligence.' Poets and poetry readers, what do you make of that? It seems like it could be functionally correct, considering that it's found and edited material, but - somehow the word seems unindicative of desirable poesy. Am I wrong?
