The Alachua County Friends of the Library spring book sale has come and gone.  I love that sale!  I had my Droid with me so I could look up book reviews using the Amazon shopping app for each book before buying... thus I bought a few more books than last time.  Monday through Wednesday were very convenient for me since I work just down the street from the sale.

I think I only spent about twenty bucks total.  I was happy to pick up some copies of books that I had already read but did not own.  I also found a few books that I had on my reading list to watch out for.

The most interesting looking titles (that is, the titles themselves were interesting) were Great Mambo Chicken & the Transhuman Condition and The Millennial Project - Colonizing the Galaxy in Eight Easy Steps.

Here is the complete list of the books I bought at the sale:

Kaleidoscope Century by John Barnes

The Long Result by John Brunner

Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke

Disposable People by Marshall Goldberg, M.D.

A Second Chance at Eden by Peter F. Hamilton
