Sweet Deal, Part 2

Similar to an older post where I found Nibley's "The Ancient State" for about $4 from a Seattle D.I., I struck gold once again. This last weekend I was at a half-price bookstore in Round Rock, Texas and checked out the ten LDS books that they had.

I was astonished to find a mint condition copy of Nibley's "Tinkling Cymbals and Sounding Brass" (retails for $49.95 at Deseret Book) for only $15.98. While it wasn't quite the steal that my D.I. find was, the book is in mint condition and doesn't look like it has ever been opened. Who would have thought I would have found that in a random used bookstore in Central Texas?

I just joined the Gospel Link from Deseret Book and found that all of Nibley's works are availible. I downloaded them to my Palm just a few weeks ago. Now I can carry it all in one device. Awesome man.

Sorry about the mispell.

No worries. I like to have books electronically available but I also like having them in hard copy as well. For some reason it is easier to read. I believe that many of Nibley's books are also available on the Maxwell Institute's website, which is tabbed on the left side of our blog.

It seems the rumors are true, then. It really IS better in Texas.
