School Book Progress 

I made progress on one other of my to do items yesterday when I ordered the Wills, Trusts & Estates Examples & Explanations book from Amazon. I'm not sure I'll actually get around to reading much of it before the start of classes, but at least I'll have it at the ready.

I also ordered the casebook for Perspectives: Sexual Orientation and the Law. It lists for $92, but I got it used from an Amazon seller for $55. The seller claims it's in barely used condition, and it's being shipped from within the state, so hopefully I'll get it soon. This is the one class for which the professor has already published the book list and first assignment. I wish more would make this information available earlier than the week before classes, as it allows us to spread out our massive book purchasing liability, and provides an opportunity to locate the texts through online sellers. When we get the lists and assignments a couple of days before classes, ordering online carries the risk that you won't have the books until several weeks into classes.
