More book shopping

So, after having placed four Powell's orders in the past month, what do I do last night?

Yeah, go to a used book store. *heh*.

Despite not having my list with me, I still managed to knock four things off of it and not buy any duplicates, which given the amount of unread stuff I have sitting around is reasonably impressive. Here's the haul:

Isaac Asimov -- Prelude to Foundation
Karl Capek -- War with the Newts
C.J. Cherryh -- The Dreamstone
C.J. Cherryh -- Foreigner
Robert L. Forward -- Dragon's Egg
Robin Hobb -- Ship of Magic
Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle -- Footfall
Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle -- Lucifer's Hammer

The C in "Capek" above is actually a C with a caron (a downward-pointing circumflex accent), which unfortunately isn't one of the entity types recognized by HTML 4.01 or XHTML 1.0 (although apparently MathML adds the &Ccaron entity). I should really declare Unicode encoding on these pages or something....

Sounds like something I'd do. So which store did you go to? (Although I suppose what I'm really asking is "Did you go to a store I know about, or is there one that I don't know about that I should check out?")

I went to Book Buyers, in downtown Mountain View. They have a pretty substantial SFF section, but a lot of it is dreck. Still, though, if I'd had my list, I'm sure I would have been able to find some other stuff that I was looking for.
