Two fun things:
1) Ghosting through Geneva's campus bookstore, digging through the eclectic selection of clearance books, looking through the stacks and stacks of classroom texts and trying to find cool books at used prices. This is especially fun since I'm alum and--at least in theory--have no reason to look at texts reserved for class.
2) Slipping into McCartney Library--students and workers looking sidelong because they know I'm not one of their own--down the stairs into the basement archival/periodical/media realm, to the lonely, oddly silent hall reserved for restrooms and bookshelves housing "BOOKS FOR SALE," my Sketchers squeaking against linoleum, scanning spines for unlikely finds.
Today yielded nothing; who is to say that next week won't?
