If you can read this - thank your teacher
This week in free books hunting: 10 (TEN!!!) books about how to stop smoking. Seriously. Makes me wonder if they all came from the same person, why they decided to donate the books and why they owned so many in the first place ... I mean, if you want to stop smoking and use a book for that, wouldn't you give up on the whole book thing long before you own ten of them? Or maybe, they were all presents from "well meaning" people ... mmh ...

Another book I didn't take home with me is probably the biggest book I've ever seen. A bible with illustrations, about the size of a big coffee table book and like 4 times as thick as one. I was wondering if that qualifies as a weapon and was really tempted for a second to take it home with me and see what happens when I try to board a plane with it.

The books I did take included some more Agatha Christie and Nobokov's Lolita. I've never read the book and probably won't like it, since a lot of people I know don't ... but I'll give it a try one of these days.
