Ed McKay's

On the way home from a meeting yesterday afternoon, I stopped for coffee (lunch) and walked over to Ed McKay's (used books) to look around. I try to stop in every now and then, but it had been awhile.

It's a huge bookstore, so I had high hopes of finding Del Amor y Otros Demonios. Nada. Not even in English. They did have several copies of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. I filed that info away for another day.

I was a little disappointed in their Foreign Language Fiction section overall, but for all I know, that could have just been yesterday's selection. They had quite a bit of FL Non-Fiction, so there's no telling. Stuff moves through there so fast. I almost bought L'Abyssin (in French), but then I remembered I was there looking for stuff in Spanish... I put the book of Dutch verbs and the first-year course in Greek back, too. It was hard, but I already don't have enough time, as it is!

Oh, and they had a commentary--forget what language--on Sophocles' Antigone (at least I assume that's what it was; it was entitled Jocaste: [Something or Other]). Ugh! It brought back memories of having to read Jean Anouilh's play by the same name in AP French. I wanted to gouge my own eyes out with a spoon.
