Chun the Unavoidable

I assume that by "acquisition," you mean that you've purchased all these books. How can you afford it?

Chun the Unavoidable

It came out to about $320 plus s&h. x50 That's go to be close to 1/3 your salary (and is more than I make in a year).


Almost all of that was free--review copies for an essay commissioned by a library acquisitions journal. But yes, I do spend $$$ on books, since my own campus has no library to speak of (and the nearest major research library is almost 100 miles away). Not as much $$$ as it looks, though, since I buy almost everything secondhand, remaindered or off eBay.
