Band of Bloggers & T4G Book Haul

This here is the book haul from the fantastic week I just had. In addition to the free giveaways from Band of Bloggers and Together for the Gospel, I was a very good boy and did not buy a boatload of books. I was able to limit myself to 9 books purchased from the conference bookstore, all on the cheap (most of what I did buy was less than $10) or at a large discount (two that sold for $25 that I got for $10 or $15). Plus I was given one book (not part of the conference giveaway) by an attendee who was given books from someone else that he already had. I also purchased a couple of T4G shirts. Later I will post some reflections from the conference.

Here’s the total haul for the week. To save me time and headaches, I won’t bother linking to a page for each book; just click on my Monergism Books button or use one of the links on my Books page to order them if you like.

Total Book Haul: 33 books!

To put this number in perspective, it was not unusual to walk into the conference bookstore and see people in the checkout line with a stack of 30 books in their hands. And it was the same guys, three days in a row. Yes, I was a very good boy.

Know what this reminds me of? It reminds me of the beginning of a semester when we had to run out and buy 30 or 40 books for our 3 (or 4 or 5) classes. Only this time the bulk of ’em were free! Seminary classes and stuff like T4G really are interested in building our libraries. Praise be to God for his wondrous gifts!
