Lifeline Canberra Book Fair Autumn 2016

Oh, it is dangerous to go to the Lifeline Book Fair. Within one hour, I picked up the following:

Dawkins R., Climbing Mount Improbable. Had been hoping to get that one for quite some time.

Dennett D.C., Breaking the Spell.

Jones D.L. & Clemesha S.C., Australian Ferns and Fern Allies. Intended for my office at work.

White M.E., The Greening of Gondwana. Large and lavishly illustrated palaeobotany tome, a bit out of date though.

Vonnegut K., Cat's Cradle.

McCrumb S., Bimbos of the Death Sun. This is not what it sounds like but a rather funny satire / crime mystery combo that I had heard of before.

Howard R.E., The Conan Chronicles Volumes 1 & 2. Classics! Who can say anything against classic literature, right?

Akers A.B., The Suns of Scorpio. Okay, this, however, is probably exactly as high-brow as the title sounds. The cover compares it to Burroughs' Barsoom novels. But it was only $1, so hey.

This is in addition to children’s' books and two games for the daughter and various books the wife bought yesterday and today. Where to store all this?

Have got to go through the shelf and find a few old books to donate in turn...
