Why we buy our own books

Davis Library BD311 .V35 1990 DUE 08-15-06

That’s the entry for Peter Van Inwagen’s Material Beings, a book that I read a while back and now need a page number from. Given the nature of the book and the length due date, I’m fairly certain I can narrow it down to one of 5 people who has it out of the library. Still, it could easily take as long as a week to track him down and humiliatingly beg to have a look at the book.

Plan b: remove that thankfully inessential citation from the paper and continue.
