This year I got all the big books. They might not look big there but try carrying a pile of them.



Most of my "history" books are reprints of primary sources or on narrow/specific topics because they're most useful. I'm not so keen on the big picture/popular history books. But I also feel I should have some for balance, and sometimes it is good look at someone else's "big picture". So if I have a chance to grab some, especially hardbacks in "as new" condition, for $5 or less, I will take it. Hence the big Fitsimon's books.

Now "The Peaks of Lyell" is one of the secondary source books I do want. Decent hardcover copies don't come cheap (it's a 40-50 year old publication) and I'm not paying $20-30 for a ratty looking book. $3 though, that will do to fill the hole until I get a better copy.

The landscape book there, that has full page colour pictures on each right-hand page, and full page at that size is a nice thing.

The little game hunting book, I got to reading it and I thought if I'm reading, it might be worth taking home.
