Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

The Man Who Was...Half Off...

Audible.com, from whom I receive no kickbacks, is having a buy one get one free sale on many of their titles. Probably the vast majority of titles that have been out more than a year...in other words, look for some classics you've always wanted to read.

If you have anything in the way of a commute...or if you're like me and you end up driving to court 2 or more times a week in various counties...snatch up some of these deals. Average book price is around $20, so you can have 2 for that price. I'm a few hours into C.S. Lewis' Till We Have Faces and am marveling both at the great story and narration, and at how much this lit major has missed in the literary department.

And if nothing else gets your attention, I am happy to report that The Man Who Was Thursday, by the Blogfather of FUMARE, G.K. Chesterton, is among those on special. Finally! Now we can understand where our beloved brother Thursday is coming from! Okay, well, we'll be better equipped to try at least...!

UPDATE: I just noticed that Audible.com carries the installation mass of Pope Benedict XVI...all 2 hours 36 minutes of it. And the price? $0.00. I knew they carried a lot of free programs of civic importance (Bush v. Gore oral arguments, political convention speeches, etc.) as a public service, but this is a nice touch.
