The real question is, will I ever get to read them?

I've been enjoying the TV show Burn Notice on DVD quite a bit recently. There's a lot to like about it -- it's got spies, humor, it's set in Florida, and it has Bruce Campbell. Bruce Campbell elevates whatever he is in at least one letter grade. For example, when he does a B-move, it really is more of an A ... so, his C-level crap actually ranks a B. It's all part of the Tao of Bruce.

Anyway, back to the original topic, Burn Notice. I stumbled a across a listing for some novelizations that didn't have absolutely terrible reviews associated with them, so I figured what the heck. So, on my lunch break today, I stopped by Border's to pick one up.

When I walked out, I had five different books; this was not the result I was expecting or hoping for. For one, I have no space. Every bookshelf in my condo is completely filled and then some. For another, I really don't have the extra money to spend.

This is why I often avoid bookstores. There is always something I want. Always.

On the plus side, most of the books were trades on sale for $4! I picked up a nice edition of The Princess Bride, a new translation of Gilgamesh, and a random fantasy novel ... along with one manga.

  1. I have been enjoying Burn Notice as well and agree that Campbell elevates the material he's in. I also have the same issue with bookstores? Were we separated at birth?
