Many thanks to the CCC national campus team, which gifted me with a $15 gift certificate to Amazon.com, which I then used to buy:
A History of the African-American People (Proposed) by Strom Thurmond, as told to Percival Everett & James Kincaid
Story Quarterly (40)
Ultimate Prizes by Susan Howatch
So, I'll be reading these lovely books pretty soon! Sweet!
