Sahara hardbound for $6.98! by canaveralgumby on 6 July 2004 4:35am
I was in my local Barnes & Noble where I found a stack of "Sahara" books with a red sticker: "orig. $45.00 now $6.98" So I bought one.

Picturing Mr. Brian Norris standing outside the window of the bookseller's, where his book has been remaindered, with his sad puppy-dog face.

peripatetically: "Made me sick as I paid the full price."

Well, *someone* has to pay full-price for these books, otherwise booksellers would assume there's no demand & not purchase *any* in the future -- which might put Our Man out of the writing business at the least & entirely out of the travel business at worst! So, go ahead & be proud that you paid full-price.

In larger terms, every time you go to WalMart ("Because it's so *cheap*!), you're putting some small Mom & Pop store out of business & feeding into the Giant Corporation Oligarchy. See "Brazil" (dir. T.Gilliam) for a harrowing glimpse of a Corporate Government future...
