Save Dough for the Rest of the Week

hersh.jpgIt’s Monday. Back to work and school and the grind. I know this feeling. Yes, birds have to slave, too. Which is why I am always looking for a break. And when I find one — if it doesn’t involve food anyway — I try to share. Sharing is good. Or so I’ve been told.

So here’s a terrific break: You can buy a great read at a fraction of the cover price. Yep. You can do this. I can do this. The guy in the next cubical can, too. Just stop down to River City Books where they have tables full of bargains — upstairs and down — every day of the week.

I snapped a picture of one such bargain (click to enlarge). Here’s a book that made plenty of headlines a couple of years ago and is still germane (pretty spiffy word for a bird, eh?) to the political discussions of today.

A brief summary of Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib: “Since September 11, 2001, Seymour M. Hersh has riveted readers — and outraged the Bush Administration — with his stories in The New Yorker, including his breakthrough pieces on the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. Now, in Chain of Command, he brings together this reporting, along with new revelations, to answer the critical question of the last three years: how did America get from the clear morning when hijackers crashed airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to a divisive and dirty war in Iraq?”

The price, however, won’t create any firestorms: Just $5.98 in paperback. While supplies last.
