For those of you who read my journal regularly, you probably realize that I spend a great deal of time and money on books. I tend, when I know it's not terribly rare, or something Just New In Print, to pick things up used: halving the price is always good.

About 4 days ago I cracked a copy of 'The Book Of Athyra'- 3rd of omnibus editions of Stephen Brust's Vlad Taltos novels. Picked this book up for $7.

read read read. Today, went to the bathroom with it, flip flip, drop my bookmark and go skimming through the book looking for where I left off.

Anybody wanna guess how much money the bookseller paid me to take this book, by not flipping through it before shelving it?
