Thanks for the free books!

Someone left a free stash of really good, mint-condition books right outside my apartment, and the strange thing is, they were books I was planning to read anyhow: Haruki Murakami, After The Quake, James Baldwin, Another Country, Brett Easton Ellis, American Psycho. Aside from this, they left me a really nice journal and a couple of promising DVD's. I guess they fled town in a hurry.

I guess Christmas came early this year. ;)

Yes, it sure did. The 'free bag' reminded me of college, when someone left a clothbound first edition of E. B. White's "The Points of My Compass'' in a trash box, in perfect condition. I have it to this day.
