"FRESHLY PICKED | A juicy book | Just for you, Tyler"

This email (title above) popped up in my inbox when I was working on that last post. Seems that, unlike Borders, Alibris knows how to seduce me. And one of the books they suggested actually looked interesting: The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language by Professor David Crystal, "a stimulating and richly illustrated guide to the variety, structure, history and theory of language. David Crystal not only conveys the intrinsic fascination of the subject, but also its enormous complexity."

Stimulating. Richly illustrated. A subject of intrinsic fascination and enormous complexity.

Oh Alibris, you tease.
