CPL Reads

I’ve been checking so many books out of the library these days that I’ve hardly had a chance to keep track of them and document them all. The ones in italics are the ones that I hope to purchase for the home library someday when I have ready cash again (curse you student loans) for such things as book purchases. And there are even a few on here that I’ve managed to get for free or at used book stores on the cheap, having an eagle eye for such things – I even discovered a new used bookstore where you can buy books by the pound!
