Since today was my shortest day at university- only one hour of lectures, at 9am of all hours- I decided to make use of being in the city and pop down the road to the store. Before I went in, I decided that I would probably only get the one- after all, I can always go back. I had my mind set on The Stranger, which is *probably* his best album- but don't hold me to that, they are all so good! I had no idea how much it would cost, but I thought $20 would be reasonable. That was about the price of the CD versions of the albums, which I had seen in Marbecks, another big music store, recently.
I arrived and headed straight for the vinyl section; for some reason, these stores file Billy Joel under J and not B, as I have twice discovered to my great annoyance. Fool me once, and all that. Anyway, I soon found the section marked Billy Joel and was quite pleased to see it was quite full. There they were, all the good ones, right before my eyes. And what's more, they were CHEAP. Because they were naturally second-hand, they were all bargains. Some were under $10, another had a double set of two of his early albums for only $14.

As you can tell, I'm pretty excited about this. I very rarely spend money on myself, but just this one time, it was definitely worth it for the amount of enjoyment I will get out of them. I even have a place up on the wall to display them. Everyone has their own obsession, and this is mine!
