Took back some overdue books today to the library. The kids were with me, and we picked out some books for them. I had the great idea to get some for me too.
Would you believe they had none of the following:
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, by Philip Dick
Eaters of the Dead, by Michael Crichton
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress,
Methuselah's Children, by Robert Heinlein
Anything in The Corps series, by W.E.B. Griffin
Since I had gone with those in mind, and I felt that at least one of them would be there, I didn't have more alternatives in mind.
I walked around looking at books like a caveman looking at a nuclear reactor- lots of staring.
In the end, I picked up another Wheel of Time edition. Not what I wanted, nor what I had in mind. But it will do.
