Post Getting a Copy of "Blank Slate"
I placed a library hold on "Blank Slate", remembering before it took a month and a half to get a copy.

Well, I gave in an also bought a copy from Barnes and Noble to also support our BookTalk group.

Sure enough, two days latter, the library informs me the book is ready for pickup!

Library hold? They actually have a copy of this book in your library where you can check it out for free? Wow :eek I thought only older books were kept by libraries.

You don't have to pick it up at Barnes & Nobles if you can get it elsewhere. They should have had it in stock without you ordering it. I've seen it at Barnes & Nobles here in Clearwater, FL for months.

I think you'll enjoy this book Monty. :) I've just read the Preface through the first 1/2 of Ch. 2 and couldn't put the book down.

Oh, I see. You already bought and picked it up from Barnes & Nobles. :\ Well, now you own a copy. Think of the bright side.

I'm wierd about books. I even keep all my school texts books. I couldn't imagine not owning my own copy of Blank Slate, or any other booktalk sponsored book. I hope to some day have my own personal library. Maybe even with a booktalk shelf. :)

If that's weird, it makes two of us. I frequently "read" a book on tape and then purchase a paper copy to keep. Its very rare that I give up a (non-fiction) book.

It is a combination of mental operations that has become increasingly the habit of educated peoples, a culture of illuminations hit upon by a fortunate turn of history that yielded the most effective way of learning about the real world ever conceived.

Post Re: Getting a Copy of "Blank Slate"
There are actually 3 copies of "Blank Slate" at our local Barnes and Noble, but it was ten dollars cheaper at the web site, and, hey, I'm helping the group out.

The reason I did not purchase it before is because my wife is not crazy about all the books I have. She encourages me to check it out at the library instead. She will be unhappy to find I purchased the book after all.

Our local UU church had a book discussion on "Blank Slate" in March. So I already read all but the last chapters. Since it was a new book with long waiting list at the library (took me six weeks to get it) they only let me check it out for two weeks with no renewal.

Sincerely,

Post Lie-barry
"I thought only older books were kept by libraries."

Mercy sakes, Chris, you REALLY need to get to a lie-barry! They have a lot of new stuff, but the hottest new items can only be checked out for a week. Well, without incurring massive fines that make you wish you had just bought the dern thang. Heh.

I'm gonna try the lie-barry for Blank Slate, but if they don't have it, where is the booktalk link to buy it?

I got it from my local bookshop and I live in a rural town in England's lake district, which would seem like the back of beyond if i didn't use to live in scotland.
