Today I went and checked out this used bookstore I’ve been to a couple of times called Mojos. I had some books from middle school that were taking up much needed space on my shelves and I decided to trade them for store credit. I came home with a pretty sweet haul:
The owner of the store was pretty proud of his Philip K. Dick selection And I can definitely see why. I’ve never been to a used book store that had more than a couple of his books. This store had all the ones I knew of and more. Picked up Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly as they are all on my reading list.
I also lucked out and found volumes 2 and 3 of Sandman. Any time I come home with Sandman is a good trip. The Writer’s Guide to the Business of Comics seemed like a really good reference guide for scripting comics. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at it and hopefully this books helps.
Finally, Specter of the Past completes my collection of Zahn’s Thrawn books, must reads for anyone interested in the Star Wars EU. And a copy of American Psycho. I’m only familiar with the movie, and when I brought it to the counter the cashier gave me a weird look. They warned me that if I had seen the movie the book was nothing like that. I replied that I looked forward to reading it and smiled. They handed it back and said gravely “Enjoy the Nightmares.” So naturally I’m even more curious to find out what’s inside.
Anyway, if you want to tell me all about your American Psycho-induced nightmares or talk about some of your favorite sci-fi books feel free to message me or tweet me @left4turtle.
