Trawling around Amazon mp3s for bargains, I'm thinking about getting "Our Father" by Russian Monks, a half-hour side of their Chants album, for 99¢. Both sides can be had for $1.98, but T. Fisher (the one and only) especially recommends "Our Father" -- and I'd sure hate to get carried away with this New Age stuff. It would be easy to do.

Nice haul today:
111: The Collector's Edition 2 (Deutsche Grammophon, 56CD cube) -- I see it's risen in price on Amazon since I carted it off
Ray Charles 4 CD Set - Vintage Vaults -- dirt cheap, but it could have easily fit on two CDs (and a much smaller box); we'll see how it plays
40 Odd Years (4 CD/1 DVD) / Loudon Wainwright III (Xgau recommendation)

And a few books (following up on various recommendations in this Expert Witness comment thread):
Tuff / Paul Beatty
Out Stealing Horses: A Novel / Per Petterson
Mortals / Norman Rush
Whites / Norman Rush -- already have Mating here somewhere
And there are more on the way -- I need to spend more of my time sitting down with a book.
