Let me die with the Philistines!

Interest rates are about to rise, we will soon be drowning in mortgage repayments, gas costs almost as much as bottled water, banana prices drive you bananas, and we have huge expenses coming up - but it's also the best time to get stuff from Amazon, because high interest rates in Australia mean a strong Australian dollar!
Which is exactly why we made this long overdue book order from Amazon last night:

1 "A Hard Day's Write, 3e: The Stories Behind Every Beatles Song"
Steve Turner; Paperback; $15.75

1 "Asimov's Guide to the Bible: The Old and New Testaments (2Vols. in One)"
Isaac Asimov; Hardcover; $21.99

1 "Maps in a Mirror (Maps in a Mirror)"
Orson Scott Card; Paperback; $11.86

1 "An Inconvenient Truth"
Al Gore; Paperback; $13.17

1 "Chomsky on Anarchism"
Noam Chomsky; Paperback; $11.02

After all, what can we do if we don't have more books that we'll get to read only in a few years lying on our book shelf?!
