This is Mr. Ismi's top item on his Christmas list:

Makes it look like a bargain, doesn't it?!  Shocked

EDIT: I need coffee.

We've heard the same and it just makes him want it more.

Don't worry. I doubt we'll have the money anytime soon!

I can never figure out those "used" prices on Amazon.  They sometimes seem way overblown.  $800 can't be the correct price for a hardbound copy of The Rudder can it?

Well, if you really want to set your sights on something, how about this: (And yes, you have to count where the comma goes in front of all those zeros)

Remember when Fr. Schmemann's Great Lent mini-book was going for hundreds of dollars last Lent?  That was a bit odd as well.

PDFs are anathema to him. It's an old book thing.

But thank you for posting that anyway!
