Going Book Shopping

You ever walk into a used bookstore, delighted to see low prices on the books, and then find yourself chagrined that there's nothing you want?

And I'm not talking about a situation where the only selection is a pile of remaindered books that no one would ever want. I'm talking about a situation where you see a lot of good titles, but none of them is grabbing you for quite legitimate reasons.

jlundberg is moving to Singapore in a few months, and he's selling many of his books under what he's calling Second Chance Book Adoption. He has a lot of good books on sale, but the problem is that the ones I would want I already have.

So, as a public service to other readers out there, I offer the link noted above. Maybe you'll find something you want.
