Last night I noticed that The Adams Chronicles
, following the Adams political family and featuring William Daniels (John Adams, 1776
; Mr. Feeny, Boy Meets World
) as John Quincy Adams was marked down 80%, to $11. Easiest impulse buy ever. But I decided I wanted free shipping, and decided to add a book to the cart to hit the $25 mark. After spending entirely too much time adding and removing books from the cart because they didn't hit the mark, or cost too much once I saw them there, I wound up buying TWO books: Alain de Botton's Religion for Atheists
and Jonathan Haidt's The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided Over Politics and Religion
. I probably should have done my shopping with a clearer mind -- I was fighting sleep at the time. Both the books have been on my two-read list for quite some time, though. At least I didn't open my email this morning to find I'd bought a fancy hat on a fatigued whim..
(Women buy shoes, I buy hats.)
