Indeed. Because I just giddily received a delivery at work that contained my geeky NYRB Classics tote bag. . .AND on top of that I have started to count through all the titles listed all over the bag to see how many I have. Oh come on, for $9 you all KNOW you would too, lol. There is no shame in my game people! All because I followed the link in last weekend's NYRB email about the Winter Sale and saw an image to the right of my screen of a lady carrying a big, glossy "Classics" tote bag I had until then never known about. I am such a sucker.

Oh dear bookjones. Yes that would be remarkably easy to add to an order. I wonder if there is a correlation between book lovers and bag lovers. After all we need some means of carrying those books with us.

The winter sale ends tomorrow. I got in on the action and ordered two books, Mr. Fortune's Maggot and Hons and Rebels, but I passed on the tote. Your geek love, bookjones, must be stronger than mine!

"Your geek love, bookjones, must be stronger than mine!"

Simply not possible rbhardy3rd---after all this *is* LibraryThing we're talking about here. Book geekdom not only abounds it's the bread n' butter of the joint! Heh. NYRB Classics? Sure we can do some measure of qualifying or quantifying for fun (but probably not so much in an actual Group called "NYRB " eh? lol) but I don't think that amongst our actual selves we can perform any sort of comparative parsing---we are all afflicted with "The Sickness" as I like to call it.

If anything, your willpower is clearly stronger than mine! :-)

ETA: I'll be damned if I don't love that freakin' tote bag to bits and pieces already though, heh.
