I made a raid on a friends of the library sale and came away with three sacks full. The ones I'm most happy with are Piedmont Airlines (because I work in an airport), The Art of the Steal (because I once had aspirations to go into museum studies), By Line: Ernest Hemingway (because I love the old sot) and Berlin Diary (because I spent a lot of time reading William L. Shirer while working on my master's thesis. I also picked up a terrific German-English dictionary - one of the huge old kind, leather bound, good paper and thumb cut outs.
