How I buy books (and how I got the Archaeological Study Bible)

First of all, I try to use the library:) But on those rare occasions when a particular book is absolutely necessary for me to own I nearly always end up buying used copies through Amazon. But I always check to see if someone is presently running fantastic special deals. I type "borders coupons" in the search engine and usually receive some satisfaction from the fact that I won't find a better deal. Well, not this time! I decided to buy the NIV Archaeological Study Bible published by Zondervan. I heard very good reviews of this edition, it seems to be a solid piece of conservative, but reasonable scholarship. In this particular case, I did not want to buy a used copy because this is an edition with very thin pages, very prone to damage. After performing my usual check I discovered that Borders is currently running a rather spectacular promotion - 40% off any title (BC4777). I also got a $5 coupon from them in the mail (BR41925). Even though Borders was selling the Archaeological Bible at a regular list price the two promotions, when combined, put Amazon out of the competition. The 40% off one expires on Tuesday, so this is more of a general reminder to all not to take for granted Amazon's domination.

The moral, of course, is in the fact that while the gentleman is trying to escape the heat of the day in the pleasant shade of the trees he is subject to a different sort of heat - the heat of love.

Non sic omnis vitabitur ardor
Non every sort of heat will be thus avoided
