You and the Universe – some ALibris Discounts

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:

That’s The Trouble with Physics: The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science, and What Comes Next.

Or this one:

That is, Theories for Everything: An Illustrated History of Science.

And oooh! I’d really like to get this one myself:

That’s The Cosmic Landscape: String Theory and the Illusion of Intelligent Design.

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.)
