Timber Press

I am on the Timber Press catalog mail list and felt I had to warn any 
who for some inexplicable reason are not yet receiving this catalog, 
that it is pure evil. There is no earthly way I can afford every book I 
want out of their catalog, and yet the desire persists each time I 
receive one to go into massive credit card debt to buy everyone I want 
anyway. And it only grows worse with each catalog because along with 
all the books I already want that I can't afford, it is a sure thing 
that there will be a bunch of brand new books that I just have to have 
that I can't afford all of either, making my wantlist all that much 
longer each time a new catalog arrives. This is yet another example of 
its evilness.

I have this dream from time to time that one day I win the Timber Press 
jackpot grand prize which is to be given a giant grocery cart and 60 
minutes in their stockroom or book warehouse during which I can grab 
and take home as many different books that will fit in the cart before 
the time limit is up as I can. And I madly rush around trying to get 
everything I want and am not able to grab the one or two titles I most 
wanted before the buzzer sounds.

If you are one of the miraculously few on this list who has never seen 
a Timber Press catalog and one is offered to you, I adjure you to run 
the other way as fast as you can and don't look back or you will likely 
suffer even worse than the biblical Lot's wife did (the one who was 
turned into a pillar of salt).
