Wishlisted books

Have had a wishlist set up on Half.com for many years now, but periodically it requires me to extend the expiration dates so as to keep all of them listed, that request being sent to an email account I rarely check anymore. Have lost a few books in the past due to not checking those emails frequently enough, and damn-near lost them again recently for the same reason, so I’m going to save them here, just in case.

This is my back-burner list that I hope to someday select titles from once I’ve depleted the stacks of books already purchased and in waiting. Really slowed down on reading over the last 3 years or so, unfortunately. Probably partly due to finding the social vlog-o-sphere on youtube, though, with any luck, I’ll eventually tire of taking up so much time staring into that abyss.

Either way, I wanted to copy these titles here for safe-keeping.
