Apuzzlement

[ #17633 ]
Dear Log,

So some kook told me to make myself an Amazon wishlist. So I did, and I absentmindedly stuck on it some stuff I'd been eyeing for a while, including Voltaire's Bastards: The Dictatorship of Reason in the West , which Ignatz had recommended to me.

And SOMEONE bought it for me! I just got it! Spooooooky.

And I've started reading the book and it's weeeeeird. I love it!

Also: "Damn you, gay marriage!"

    wierd country...

    I thought of getting putting an amazon wishlist on my website but I don't think I'd like the underwhelming response.

      I set mine up just so I could remember what I wanted to get and/or requist from the public library, when I get around to it. That, I think, is the best reason to have this listy thing. I never expected anyone (but me) would actually buy me anything off it!

        *nods* Same here.

        I have pointed people to it in the past when they asked what they could get me, but on the whole, I use it to keep track of interesting books that I might get around to buying when I have the spare cash and time.

  • I was thinking of loaning you my copy... that was a good one but he has tended to repeat himself since that book.

    Incidentally, you and JRS share the same nemesis. Just yesterday he proclaimed in a speech that globalization is dead [www.gg.ca].
