Pottered around in Borders afterwards. I got a 40% off coupon in the e-mail today, and I spent a good deal of time staring longingly at the Oxford Classical Dictionary (THE dictionary to have if you're a classics/ancient history student). It's $270, but with the coupon it'd be about $160. Gah! What do I do? That's still a fair bit of money to pay for a book, but I might not get such a sweet deal again on it since Borders don't stock the OCD that often and the coupon expires on the 16th (could ask for it as a Christmas present, but I think the parental unit would baulk at such an expensive book too).
In any event, I have to go into the city tomorrow to pick up a few things for my trip, if classics students want to counsel me on this dilemma (for they'll appreciate the importance of the OCD), please feel free to.
Edit: Whee, thankyou Judi! *dilemma is resolved*
