Presents from home

During the week I got a note from DSPS that I had a package, but I didn't get a chance to go pick it up until saturday. When I did, it turned out to be a bigger than I had expected, so I had to rent a truck to get it and call a friend to help me drag it upstairs.

it's books. It is a terrible load of books, collected for me by a few of my friends on Earth, mostly classics like Hemmingway and Kipling and Saki and Twain. Many are first editions, a few are signed. There's some good SF in there, and a few nice travelogues.

Pitiably, these are for sale all over the planet cheap because people have lost interest. Shame, really. But still: I have reading material for ages.
