Books, books, beautiful books! One of the several presses whose books I love is Columbia University Press. Today, I learned that Columbia is having a "white sale" where they are offering more than 1000 of their titles for sale at prices that are between 20-80% off the original price. I already browsed through the science section and I would be thrilled to read 1/3rd of the titles listed there. But in addition to science, they have a huge number of subject areas that you can choose from, ranging from general interest and best sellers, current events and political theory to Scottish studies, literary and cultural studies and women's studies. The sale ends 31 May 2008.
