Games of Higher Learning

I received a note from this morning.  It said:

Dear Customer,

Customers who purchased textbooks from may be interested in an easy way to get great prices for used titles through our Textbook Buyback Store.

It included links to the textbook buy back page and pointed out that I had, in fact, purchased a textbook from them in the past.

And the textbook they were looking for me to sell back?

Pokemon HeartGold & SoulSilver The Official Pokemon Kanto Guide National Pokedex: Official Strategy Guide

So, do I get semester credits for completing the National Pokedex or what?

  1. Analogue

    They sent me that message about “The Van Rijn Method” – a science fiction novel by Poul Anderson

    Obviously their search queries need some refinement…


  2. Wizardling

    *laughs* I got the same for recently buying the super scholarly ‘A Wizard of Mars’ by Diane Duane. Would have made more sense if I’d bought the first in the series – ‘So You Want To Be A Wizard’ (awesome sci-fi-like fantasy, BTW – far better than Harry Potter, and I was reading them well beforehand back in the 80’s), heh.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
