I love the smell of reference books in the morning.

September 24, 2006

There is a book out there called The World’s Writing Systems. It’s supposedly one of the best and most complete books on the subject out there. One of my professors in college, when I was taking my Writing Systems class, had a copy and told us as much himself, he also basically said if we could ever afford to get it, we should, but it runs about $175-$200.

Well, Oxford University Press is doing it’s fall sale right now, and it is FORTYFUCKINGFIVE DOLLARS!.

I ordered it so fast I didn’t even see anything else on the site (just as well, because I would have spent a TON had I). But yes, there was a happy linguist dance going on here (it’s like flailing, only less coordinated).
