Yesterday I made my first visit to David's Books, where I traded in my old copy of Peter Clarke's Hope and Glory (superceded by a new edition, which I got for free as a GSI!) for The Faith of a Writer by Joyce Carol Oates. I was a bit sad to sell the Clarke, given that I bought it in England during my semester abroad at Cambridge, but it was also fun to see that I could trade in my history books for fun books. Perhaps after I leave grad school, I'll replace my entire library to reflect my new postacademic life!
