Well, the title says it all. My birthday is this week, and a friend of mine gave me the first four volume of a Manga by the guy who did Love Hina. I’ve forgotten the name, but it is about a young Welsh Wizard who ends up teaching a Homeroom class in a Japanese High School. Personally, I didn’t lik it.
Today, I went into a local store and returnd the books. I would have prefered cash, but that wasn’t an option without a receit. Now, as a result, I have a 46 dollar store-credit card. In addtion, I have a 20% off card, supposedly for classroom use only “Oh, it’s a reward for a student!”, which I use for whatever I feel like. (My teacher’s id also gets me into the Science Center, and the Visionary Arts Museam)
Looking at the book store, I saw few fantasy books which interested me, and while I saw a few manga which looked interesting, I was turned off by the idea of paying $8 (10, before discount) per book, leaving me with only five books, plus change for such a large amount of money. Frankly, my mind stopped in the 80s, where $5 was an average price to pay for a paperback, and the highest prce for a candybar was $0.50
Well, any Baltimorean dopers want to buy a gift certificate? If not, what books for 20, 10, and 5 dollars, of almost any genre are more then worth the price?
P.S. No, I don’t teach, except for a little Summer School, but it still gets me a teacher’s ID, in case you are wundering.
P.S. I see spelling mistakes. However, I am not done downloading OpenOffice, and am a horrible speller. Sorry.
