Unfortunately, we don't have a Costco. Do you think a Supercenter would have one?

It's possible, I would try a bookstore first or Amazon.

My wife got it for me from Barnes & Noble. Make sure to order it online, because you pay full price for it at the B&M B&Ns.

The Complete Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson | 9781449433253 | Paperback | Barnes & Noble

FWIW, I have the hardcover version, not the paperback. Very solid, well-built collection.

Glimpses of the Moon by Edmund Crispin

"Professor Gervase Fen is in Devon working on his masterpiece critique of the modern novel, but keeps getting distracted - by the local animals (several pigs, a mildly insane cat, a horse with sleeping sickness), by the spectacular failures of the local electrical board, by the vicar's practical jokes, by the retired major yearning for another jolly war. Oh, and by the dismembered body, found in a nearby field, whose head keeps turning up in the most unlikely places."

http://www.amazon.com/Glimpses-Moon-.../dp/1937384039

I am SO beyond tired of books that have phrases like "she stared into his steely eyes and felt something lurch in her stomach"!! (That was from a book called Hidden by Kendra Elliot that was supposed to be a mystery where the only real mystery is why was it ever published and why people gave it hundreds of 5 stars!)

So I'm going back to some real writing. Glimpses of the Moon has a piquant English sense of humor also and is a bit old fashioned. That's quite all right with me! So far no steely eyes or lurches in the stomach.

Thanks for the nice review Cave. It's a real help when people say something about what they're reading instead of just leaving a title.

You're welcome---- it's not that hard to copy paste a review and give the url to it. Come on, guys.

Someone on the movie thread said "I liked it." No reference to what he or she liked either. More giggles.

just wondering if any of you are enrolling in that new kindle free book program? i'm having a hard time determining if spending $10 a month for unrestricted access to the huge kindle library would be a practical deal for me. it sure is a mighty tempting one. if i do decide to go with a trial kindle subscription, i will cancel my hulu+ membership to help offset the cost.

I am so un-enamored with the Kindle that I wouldn't even consider it. I just cannot give up my dead tree books.
