Yikes! Only one used book. The price you have to pay for new books is painful. Too bad you couldn't find them all used.

It sounds like you are all rested up and ready to tackle classes again.

Actually, there were two used books in there. There was a surprising dearth of OT books on line, at least on e-bay and half.com. At orientation they explained that these books are the books that we will use for most of the entire course (whew!) and that they are 'career' books, books that we will continue to refer to as we work in the field. That explains why you can't buy a lot of them used, and why they are pricy even when you can. It did make me sick to spend that kind of money. The woman at the register laughed as I pulled faces as she rang it all up. They had a marvelous little coupon for a free candy bar after you had purchased nine. (They were overpriced.) I told her that when someone spent $448 on books (one of the books in the pile was bought on half.com) I thought they should get a free candy bar as a consolation prize. She laughed. I left unconsoled.

Yes, Roland. I didn't need it anyways. And speaking of that: Friday weigh-in. I've lost a little over a pound in the past two weeks. I forgot it last week too.

Tata for now!

Cute socks!
Bob and I buy textbooks this time of year too. We buy the textbooks for Stacey. She pays us back once she gets her student loan. I just shelled out about $100 for books on Adobe Photoshop CS5. I've upgraded from Photoshop Elements. There is a BIG difference between the two programs!

Congrats on the pound gone. I've been working on it lately, myself.

I love your notebooks!! There's nothing quite like fresh, new school supplies!!
