Pre-reading notes

Found this for 50 cents at the used book store. Will it be any good? I have no idea, but 50 cents!! Even if there is only 1 good essay in here, it will be worth the money. And as I haven't brought myself to read anything by David Foster Wallace yet, maybe his contribution to this collection will give me an idea of whether I should try (or not).

Sarah For fifty cents I don't think you'll go wrong. I've picked up Best American Travel Writing, Best American Sports Writing, Best American Science Writing (in addition to my usual favorites, Short Stories & Nonrequired Reading) and I can always find something interesting in the collection.

They had probably 10 years worth of "Best American..." short stories, essays, etc. and they were all 50 cents or $1. I might be making a return trip very soon.
