Check out this blog entry that I heard about in the ether.
Apparently the writer bought some books from us at www.betterworld.com and has this to say about that:
I’ve been reading Christopher Buckley for the past month now.
1. No Way to Treat a First Lady
2. Thank You for Smoking
3. The White House Mess
4. Florence of Arabia
5. Wry Martinis
I’m on book #4 right now and I was so thrilled to find this:
It’s Christopher Buckley’s autograph~!
… now Johann and I have to change our names to Kerry and Susan. ^_^
My favorite is still No Way to Treat a First Lady. Florence of Arabia is really funny. ^_^
We also got a copy of Irving Stone’s Passions of the Mind — his take on Sigmund Freud.
We received a library copy and it still has the old library record. ^_^
I like that my books have a story. ^_^
So what have we learned? Used books have a story (that’s more than the one cleared by an editor) and sometimes a surprise. And did I mention they’re loads cheaper? Ah, well in case I didn’t…
