This list is honestly my "want list" for books & music. It is likely incomplete at any point in time -- I'm always noticing stuff that looks interesting but don't always write it down -- but I actually carry this list around in my Pilot and try to look it over when I find myself at the record store or bookstore.

I don't always know "fer shure" that I "really" want a given item. Often I want to check it out cuz I read or otherwise heard about it -- maybe I won't like it once I give it a listen, who knows? In terms of music, some are ones I have on vinyl and want on CD. Some are ones I've been keeping an eye out for for years (boy, the Web sure makes that a different task now -- it's way easier to pro-actively search for obscure stuff). Items that I've tagged with "?" are ones I'm curious about and realize I'm simply curious about 'em. Check out this page for some of what's presently sitting on my bookshelf. If yer innarested in a hint of what's in my music collection (actually what I've listened to most recently, only in terms of artists though, not in terms of the album names), see my credits page.

This site is an Amazon Associate site -- the above links carry you to Amazon and if you end up purchasing something (without first leaving their site) then I get a percentage of the sale. This helps support my Kings Mountain Systems web pages which are hosted at an independent ISP rather than Stanford.

I use Amazon myself. I've purchased a number of books from them and have been quite satisfied with their service.

I view their associates program as a form of "sponsorship" rather than classic in-your-face-with-near-total-lies advertising, which I despise. One of these days I'll write a rant of my views on such and put a link to it here.

Special note about music...

I try to purchase used CDs as much as possible. I have purchased a couple of CDs from Amazon, but don't make a habit of it because of the price differential with that of used ones -- and we have several quite good used CD shops here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm providing the music/CD links above (1) as a part of this sponsorship gig, and (2) for your (and my) potential convenience.
