Dozens of fresh art books, mostly in architecture, photography, and individual artists; half a shelf of Hunter S. Thompson (Journalism is in the red room upstairs); "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman; Hoberman spheres, wooden letter blocks, terrariums, and Sylvia Plath and Noam Chomsky finger puppets. And that was before 2pm.

So we had to rearrange United States History and Military History to fit in the new arrivals from last week, and now it looks like we have hit a fiction jackpot, some interesting Economics, and a shelf or two of early Christian theology (not just Augustine, but Tertullian and Origen and Gregory of Nyssa and more). And there are new plush dinosaurs. So we're pretty happy, but we'd be even happier to share our toys. Come on in!

The staff banded together and gave Nialle a week off.


...Now that Nialle's back, though, it's time to play "How much Shakespeare criticism and Latin can we cram into the bookstore while adding another shelf to Buddhism?" Next week, we'll have some new toys, including a Tesla doll and fearsomely cute plush Angora rabbits as well as awesome new educational games and toys for the 2-5 age group. And then we'll get cracking on expanding the U.S. history department, though there will doubtless be other surprises as the weather warms and friends with fascinating books to sell escape their winter lodgings. Be the first to see what they bring - come in, come in!
