Backyard Professor, I'm very happy for you. It's always a thrill to discover a hidden treasure and get it for cheap.

However, as a man who received his undergraduate degree in English, I need to let you in on a bit of wisdom:

A frequent writer is only allowed about 500 exclamation points per month. An infrequent writer's ration is much, much less. You've used up about half your ration in only two or three posts. . . you might want to think about spreading them out a little. :-)

Let's see... besides buy books, what could I have done with $200 today?

1. Bought another month of life for my husband.
2. Bought a canvas portable garage (with some change leftover).
3. Paid the registration fees for 2 relay teams.
4. Bought an above ground inflatable pool that was 12 feet across and 4 feet deep.
5. Had all the strings in my piano restrung.
6. Had my carpets cleaned.
7. Bought a new patio set (for when I get a patio)
8. Bought a Kitchenaid mixer for my daughter
9. Bought a really cool battery operated mini-Hummer for my grandkids
10. Bought a decent wool coat

To each his/her own. :-)

(MOD NOTE) I moved this thread and the other book acquisition thread to the Off Topic forum. Neither thread seemed to have a direct link to Mormonism.

The ECFs are available online, free. You can also download them (free), complete with a search engine. But the best value for money is this (in the Silver edition).

That's really cool. I'm happy for you. But in the meantime, those of us who are cheap or poor (but may still like a set in our bookcase sometime in the future) can go to websites such as this one....

http://www.ccel.org/fathers2/

....and look at and/or download them for free.

Indeed Nibley was always spot on. So was Bickmore and many others. The fact of the matter is, the farther you go back in history with the ECF, the more LDS the Church looks in terms of doctrine which is exactly what you'd expect from a Church that claims to be a restored one.
