We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I keep saying that I am going to purchase a Kindle when I finish reading a fair amount of the unread books on my bookshelves. But this weekend I just purchased more books at under $1 per book- 2 novels and an autobiography- which comes to about 5% of the original retail price. Not to mention my library books. Kindle will wait, and keep dropping in price.
I purchased at a used book store, not at a library sale.
