Sanctus Ludovicus

Little to report from Nellyville so far — the festivities have yet to begin.  I did get to drop by the excellent used bookstore on the Loop, Subterranean Books, and was pleasantly surprised that even though it's been a few years since I was a regular customer, I was recognized — the proprietor even made a point to ask me if I had my discount card, which indeed I did.

A well-spent $60 netted me a copy of Leviathan (my old one is in storage), biographies of Jefferson (by Gilbert Chinard), John Wilkes (Louis Kronenberger), and Lewis Mumford (Donald Miller), the Clyde Wilson-edited Essential Calhoun, and a two books on 17th and 18th century English politics.  Even the internet is no substitute for a good used bookstore.
