I'm up in Ann Arbor, doing a little mathematical modeling of gene regulation here at the U. of Michigan.

On my way to find some Chinese food, I stumbled upon an amazing book store called Dawn Treader. Always in quest of finding old paperbacks on my list of post-apocalyptic sci-fi (I've been intending to write more about a little science and post-apocalyptic fiction project I've been working on; unfortunately my days are limited to 24 hours), I went in and found a treasure trove of sci-fi, especially from the 30's-70's.

Here's my haul, at $2-3 a piece:

When Worlds Collide - Philip Wylie&Edwin Ballmer, 1932
The Long Tomorrow - Leigh Brackett, 1955
Greener Than You Think - Ward Moore, 1947
A Rose for Armageddon - Hilbert Schenck, 1982
Lucifer's Hammer - Larry Niven&Jerry Pournelle, 1977
Hothouse - Brian Aldiss, 1962
Eternity Road - Jack McDevitt, 1997
Where The Late Sweet Birds Sang - Kate Wilhelm, 1976
Damnation Alley - Roger Zelazny, 1969
A Canticle for Leibowitz - Walter Miller, 1959
Alas, Babylon - Pat Frank, 1959

I struck out on JG Ballard and John Wyndham, but otherwise, this was a great find. We need more bookstores like this!
