All for a dollar, courtesy of the local library book sale:
That Hideous Strength (pb) by C.S. Lewis
A Primate's Memoir: A Neuroscientist's Unconventional Life Among the Baboons (pb) by Robert Sapolsky
How the Mind Works (hc) by Steven Pinker
Zero History (hc) by William Gibson
Storms of my Grandchildren: The Truth about the Coming Climate Catastrophe and Our Last Chance to Save Humanity (hc) by James Hansen
Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman (hc) by Jon Krakauer
That Hideous Strength completes for me Lewis's Space Trilogy, having long years ago read my copy of the first installment and purchased book 2 in a previous installment of Discount Book Buying. Although I'm happy to obtain a copy of Storms of my Grandchildren in pristine condition, it does dishearten me that this former library copy of a book on such an important subject looks as though it was has never been checked out.
And in tribute to libraries everywhere, a word from author Neil Gaiman on their greatness.
