today as always happens after i meet with a professor i went directly to the bookstore (hahaha. i wrote 'straight' and then deleted it and wrote 'directly' so i wouldn't be saying 'i went straight.' hahaha. has it really been 20 years?) and found many many volumes i needed of which i bought four. now it is all i can do to restrain myself from visiting powells.com.
libraries. i must try to remember that there are libraries.
