Books. There were lots of those.
A ton of other stuff happened too. More about that after the break
In which I collect books without having the time to read them all. Or more realistically, don’t quit your job if you want even more books, because an income helps.
As a going away present from the job I’ve occupied for roughly the last 2 years, I received two $50 gift certificates to Chapters-Indigo. I don’t really shop there often, because… well, they’re a chain store that’s moving away from selling books. This after they helped decimate “all” the little independent retailers around. They also often only have books I want in Kobo format, and I like my e-books DRM-free.
