The Department of Broken Spines

on February 13, 2009

Welcome to a recurring feature here at the Reading Room, The Department of Broken Spines.

At the DOBS, we rummage through the books-for-sale section at SF Bay Area Craigslist, selecting the absolute cream of the crop in literary offerings available for purchase in our region.

If you’ve long suspected that the nursing textbook of your dreams is sitting in some guy’s basement in Palo Alto, but don’t have the time to find out, we’re here to help.

This week at the Department of Broken Spines, it’s all about YOU.
