And there’s not even a new Harry Potter book out

Written by

It’s the beginning of the semester and lines are out of control at the Barnes & Noble and, occasionally, at Book Culture, where the line has snaked up the stairs (or alternately, has been non-existent, like every time Bwog goes there to take a photograph of the line).  For a shorter trip to the bookstore, don’t head over right after a class lets out.


Or, just skip the whole headache and head to Butler, which is nice and empty this time of year.  One tipster did and saved $600 on textbooks, sadly reminding Bwog of (Good) Will Hunting’s dressing-down of a Harvard snot: “you wasted $150,000 on an education you coulda got for a buck fifty in late charges at the public library.”

    NOOO!! Don't reveal the secret! Competition is fierce enough as it is, I don't want to fight someone in the stacks over the last copy of some required book...but I will.

      you see, that's why al gore invented the internet. he wasn't happy with the inequality created by secrets and devised an evil plan to ensure that nothing will ever remain a secret again.

  2. Hmm  

    Columbia's late fee structure makes Will Hunting's proposition infeasible.
