You have $25 to spend.  You can only spend it at Barnes & Noble.  You don’t want to spend more than $25 at B&N because you’d rather give your money to Powell’s or Wallace Books.

You can think of a million things to buy.  You could add to your children’s books collection.  An old favorite or two.  A nice hardcover of something you know you’ll want to reread.

You could buy as many cheap copies as possible of things you Might Want to Read.  Things on your reading list.  Authors you know you like.

What’s a girl to do?
I don’t even know why I’m asking, because I’ll probably go with the comfortable favorite. I’m so predictable.

Stay tuned for a report on the mission.
