Heeding the Siren's Call

Sara and I went to Portland yesterday to see my dad on his 70th 39th birthday. Sara wanted to stop by Powell's Books, naturally. She went into the main store, and I amused myself in the Technical Books annex. I won't list whatever inconsequential stuff she came out with (not all that much, considering); I, however, cut a wider swath:

$269.85. Please, no comments on my narrow interests. It's a statement of the intellectual paucity of the Seattle area that I can only come across these things on an annual trip to Portland. Doesn't anyone do math around here?


Isn't there a math-centric book store on 12 Ave on Cap Hill? Full of all kinds of technical manuals and such? I think the cross street is John but it might be a little farther north. Might be worth driving down 12th to see if it's still there...
