Ye'll walk the plank, Robert H. Frank!!!1

I thought that $122.50 was an insane amount to pay for one textbook (a textbook on microeconomics, to make it worse) until I discovered that I was getting off lightly. Ouch. At least my $90 Java textbook sounds potentially useful...

And then when you try to sell it back you'll get, like, $30 for it. And you'll like it.

Thanks a lot for adding the little screen tips for the links. Now I don't have to be blindy thrown across the internet everytime I read an entry :)

The prices of course books alone is enough to kill one's enthusiasm... I'm buying two new books this week, and *poof*, there goes the rent money.

Insane, I tells ya, INSANE!

Especially if you don't even like them, OR - even worse - you find that you opened them maybe twice during the whole course. *sigh*

I think the only book I truly appreciate buying these last 3,5 years is Donald Norman's "Design of everyday things". Oh, and Mark Pearrows something something on Website Usability (very basic but very entertaining). And then there was one about Internet laws and such. That was pretty good too. Oh! And a graphic design book that I absolutely love! And then there was... Eh...

OK, maybe some books are worth it... Aherm.
