The Haul

This s my haul from the expo. I’m especially proud of The Monster and the Trollope, which I got for the ridiculous amount of $5. The Monster is all the rage right now, and I need my own copy because the book sounds very usable. 

I could have kept going, and the temptation was strong but I only have one small carry-on and a book bag, and they can only house so much. 

God, I love the MLA book expo. If I returned in the last hour before closing, I could haul away a crazy number of free books.

    The US post office used to have something called a “book post”, where you could mail books at ridiculously cheap prices. I used it to move my books when I moved cities a few years ago. I’d say, carry all you can and then mail yourself the rest.


    • Oh, you shouldn’t have said this. Oh, you so shouldn’t have. Because now that I know this, I’m off to the expo for a feeding frenzy!

      Thank you. 🙂

        I dunno, check out the Media Mail/ Library Mail price files. Media mail maxes out at ~$36 for not more than 70 lb. You’d have to talk to the Post Office to be sure though.

        The USPS gets unfairly maligned. When I visited India as a child, half of our suitcases would be filled with gifts not only for my relatives but family friends’ relatives. This was not only because a lot of things couldn’t be mailed, but also because they were more likely to make it to their recipients.

    Ah, my comment got trapped in the spam filter. Happy book mailing!
