We took a look around the exhibit hall at the convention center, where left-wing professors talked to book publishers and looked for the latest books to buy. This is what we saw:

book7

“Why Read Moby Dick,” among other titles

book6

“English is Not Easy” and “That’s Not English,” along with “Parallel Text: Short Stories in Chinese.”

book5

So. Many. Books.

book4

One of the publisher’s displays.

book2

“Thug Notes” and one about Wonder Woman?

Wonder if the person is thinking, “Why are all these books here? Who would read them?!”

book display2

Uh, okay? Publisher celebrates the weirdness.
