Book Blowout!!!

Every year, once a year, Asbury Theological Seminary makes room on its shelves for newer books by getting rid of the "less checked out" and / or donated books it has and / or receives. So, when the doors opened at 7:30am this morning for the sale, one other nerd along with me, stormed the gates and browsed through over 1,000 books. I went, mainly looking for resources that might possibly contribute in the future to my dissertation. Thankfully, I found quite a few things that were right up my alley. In fact, for $14.50, I brought home a box of 29 books, which are all valuable to current or future research projects. Here they are:

* S. Moscati, Ancient Semitic Civilizations
* E. Hamilton, The Roman Way
