The price of textbooks

I posted this Tedium story on my Facebook page


and it generated a few comments.




And I thought $70 for my Riverside Shakespeare back in 1983 was so bad I accused the teacher of having stock in Riverside.

    Philosophy texts in the early 1970s. Those expensive texts confirmed my feeling that books were treasures. It taught me to not mark up a book because I hated buying used books that were marked up. It taught me that books were more than paper, ink and binding, but could be portals to vast and fascinating concepts. I was on work-study in order to get through school, but the hit for books was one I took willingly. I’ve paid big bucks since then for an individual book that served no outside purpose, but filled my inner book-lust. I’d rather spend money on books than on most anything else.
