    So after picking up my check and paying my bills, I gave into materialistic temptation and greed and stopped at near every second-hand shop on the way home (mostly ceasing the spending because it became too heavy to carry any more things).


    Today's acquisitions, in the order in which I remove them from the bag:

    The Lenin Antholology - Selected, edited, and introduced by Robert C. Tucker

    The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology (5th edition) -
    Moore and Persuad
    (So, it's 3 editions old- it was a dollar and the fundamentals can't changed all that much, right?)

    Right, moving along,

    Fundamentals of Behavioral Statistics (8th Edition) - Richard P. Runon el al.

    Marxism and Ideology - Rossi-Landi
    (Not really sure what to expect on this one, but flipping through, it seemed to make some interesting notes on societal structure)

    Introduction to Logic - Charles and Jaquelyn Kegley
    (Seems to expand on a matters with which 'm only vaguely familiar, but I mostly bought it for the explanations of logical symbols and 'mathematical' representations of arguments, which I never quite fully understood and always had to ask be repeated in lingual form)

    Principles of Biomedical Ethics (5th Edition) - Tom Beauchamp and James Childress

    Final Entries 1945; The Diaries of Joseph Goebbels - edited and introduced by Prof. Hugh Trevor-Roper

    Reading for Sociology (4th Edition) - Edited by Garth Massey

    Psychology Today: An Introduction (7th Edition)

    Basic Psychology (5th Edition) - - Henry Gleitman et al

    Psychology (7th Edition)
    - David Myers

    The money spent on the psychology books is wasted.

    I comb for books @ second hand/antique stores as well.
