Library visit

Over a month since last post which is not unusual so a catch-up.  One of the perks of my job is access to a top-notch academic library - sometimes I almost think that's more important than the paycheck.  (Almost.)  I always have a bunch of stuff on my list but generally go until my bag is full which meant I never got to the numerous Shakespeare books I'd hoped to read before the birthday events last month.

Tonight's haul:

The Cambridge Companion to Baudelaire
Somoza - The Athenian Murders
Bevington - Murder Most Foul: Hamlet Through the Ages
Boethius - Consolation of Philosophy (Norton Critical Edition)
Sherwood Anderson - Complete Stories
Crispin - The Moving Toyshop
Woolf - Collected Essays Volume One (the 60s edition that's arranged thematically which is what I'm interested in - not the 80s also-four-volume edition that's chronological which seems like a snooze)
Baudelaire - The Painter of Modern Life (original edition that you can actually read - the current Phaidon is on such cheap and thin paper that it's a blur)
Calasso - La Folie Baudelaire
O'Grady - And Man Created God
Gravett - Comics Art
