Yesterday I didn’t just discover the book about string theory, but I also discovered two or three news links about astronomy. Which put me in the mood for some astronomy stuff. And I happened to get some ALibris discounts to offer to people who’d be interested in astronomy books too (or, for that mater, other ALibris books found through this blog**).
So first of all, if you do want to go grab some of these books, here are some codes you can enter upon checking them out, to get discounts:
BLAIR $2 off $20
BACHMAN $4 off $40
DODGSON $6 off $60
PORTER $8 off $80
AROUET $10 off $100
GEISEL $15 off $150
Looks good, doesn’t it? By the way, those all expire at the end of October.
I was browsing just to see what would come up if I put “astronomy” into the link finder. A few things came up:
Or this one:
And oooh! I’d really like to get this one myself:
I could go on and on. I love this stuff. I should stop peeking at ALibris or I could spend all the rent money in a trice. But I dearly love books like this, and would fill my house full of them if I could. Anyway, if you’re interested, go have a look at those books and grab them.
(**If you’re not familiar with ALibris, it’s a website where you can find used books, textbooks, and out-of-print books. Often when you can’t find them anywhere else. So go have a peek.)
