New Books!

“The legendary El Dorado- the city of gold- remains a mere legend, but astonishing new discoveries are revealing…” blah blah blah. This sentence is the best hook I have ever seen. I hooked you didn’t I? The rest of the sentence is long and poorly structured. Okay, maybe not poorly structured, but it sure is loonnnnnnggggg. I hate long sentences. I get lost/bored in the middle.

Here’s the key part: “major civilization in ancient Amazonia.” Now that is cool! When I was in college, they were just starting to find things in Amazonia. Now there’s a book about it! Awesome.

If you can’t tell, I just got an email from Left Coast Press, Inc.  They’re having a book sale! And also they sent their Fall Catalog.

The interesting books from the catalog (so you don’t have to flip through it and take up your own busy time):

Bridging the Divide: Indigenous Communities and Archaeology in the 21st Century

That title speaks for itself. I want that book. It’s $34.95 $29.71 in paperback. It’s on SALE! Available in September.

Sacred Geologies of Ancient Amazonia: Historical Ecology of Social Complexity

This is the book just told you about above. It’s $69 $48.30 hardcover! ALSO ON SALE! Available in September.

Okay the REASON these books are on sale is because they’re on pre-order. Left Coast Press is having a 20% off sale on pre-orders right now. Read the FINE PRINT. Duh.

Anyways- two more books:

How Culture Makes Us Human: Primate Social Evolution and the Formation of Human Societies

Kind of a boring title for what sounds like an interesting subject. I’m always interested in evolution. $22.95 $19.51 in paperback. Available in October.

Video Game Worlds: Working at Play in the Culture of EverQuest

There’s a curve ball for you. $34.95 $29.71 in paperback. Available in October.
