[Comments] (5) I'm Rich! I'm Rich!: The book buy-back man came today. He buys the new textbooks that publishers send hoping we will like them and adopt them for our classes. Some of the publishers are getting smart and sending annotated instructor's editions, which he won't buy, but there are plenty of textbooks that come in the mail. I got $50 for my little stack of books. That's a couple of weeks of groceries!

Wow, you can eat on $50 for two weeks? Amazing.

Wow, I didn't know grown-ups were excited about book buyback too!
