Buffett's secrets from Baltimore County Public Library.

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I just received a parcel. It contains a hard cover copy of "Buffettology" from Baltimore County Public Library!

The library received the book in November 1997. Wow! Imagine that. I was only 26 years old in 1997.

This book is 16 years old! It was sitting in a public library in the USA and now it is mine. I get a strange, fuzzy feeling thinking about it.

It also gives me satisfaction to know that this purchase from BetterWorldBooks helped to fund literacy for the less privileged.

Some stuff in the book.

New material for bedtime reading.

Hi Solace,

I bought the book for almost $40 from MPH a few years ago. -.-"

Yes, if we can do something for charity while getting good value for money, why not? :)
