Brother, can you spare... ten bucks?

A new display went up in New & Used Books this weekend: gifts for ten bucks or less. We've got leather-bound books, like The Complete Novels of Jane Austen, book-lights from I-Lites, beautiful notebooks books from paperblanks, the Yoga to Go Travel Deck, a miniature-cube version of The Earth, wonderfully colorful pocket calenders, in tough plastic covers, from teNeuses, bookplates, an "Authors Card Game, and on and on and on...

The Little Red Riders Book is "The odd, ordinary and outrageous backstage demands of rock 'n' roll's most famous artists..." Hilarious. The New York Times The Joy of Crosswords -- speaks for itself. The Pocket Naturalist Guides from Waterford Press have a laminated format, perfect for a back pocket on a hike and we have, for example, Bugs & Slugs: An Introduction to Familiar North American Invertebrates. 97 ways to make a dog smile, by Jenny Langbehn is an established favorite with the staff here, and, at $7.95, exactly right for a Christmas stocking or for mailing to a dog or dog-owner you love.
So, if your wallet is hurting, and who's isn't these days? Consider fun affordability, thanks to your fellow economic sufferers here at University Book Store.
