In defense of my trasking of these books:

  • 1. Why do I even have them? All were on sale and some were free. Some are from the Library of Computer and Information Sciences, which I think used to be the Small Computer Book Club and has now been superceded by Others I picked up in 2000 at the remnants bin of a Waldenbooks in the Pseudomall (the Town Center of Manhattan, KS).

  • 2. It's not fair! Those books were timely in the mid-90s! Believe me, I took that into account.

I'm thinking of having a merry little bonfire.
If anyone wants these books, they're yours for a song.
