Luckily for me, I received a $25 gift card for B&N at work the other day, so I decided to make good use of it. Hit the "sale" table for books and came away with a nice haul.
The Secret Voyage of Sir Francis Drake, 1577-1580 by Samuel Bawlf
Captured by Pirates edited by John Richard Stephens
The Tao of War by Wang Chen, translated by Ralph D. Sawyer
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
I'm rather pleased to find The Tao of War was translated by Sawyer. He was the translator on my copies of The Art of War and Military Methods of the Art of War. Actually, I'm pretty pleased with all my purchases. I've been wanting to add The Count of Monte Cristo to my library for quite a while.
In fact, the only things I didn't pick up tonight was The Divine Comedy by Dante. I used to have a great copy in white leather that I lost in the divorce. *sigh* I can find the individual pieces as books, but I'd like to pick it up as one complete book. It would go nicely on the shelf next to Machiavelli.
Got my pitch for the anthology off in the mail this evening. Nothing to do now but start thinking up other ideas in case the editor wants something different. Of course, that's supposing he doesn't ban me from ever e-mailing him another pitch *grin*.
Oh, the music library slowly is being restored. I've uploaded eleven albums this evening (5 anime soundtracks, three goth/heavy metal and two new-age (according to iTunes)). Only about sixty or so to go.
