The greatest thing about living in a college town is having access to a college bookstore, and the UA's is the best in the state. It's not just for students. Don't have time or money to take a class? Buy a book and educate yourself. Check out Tim Flannery's The Weather Makers and James Lovelock's TheRevenge of Gaia for the scoop on global climate change. Read Alfred Wegener's The Origin of Continents and Oceans or Ralph Bagnold's Physics of Blown Sand and Desert Dunes. Each book is a college course between two covers, and you can sit around in your pirate jammies with the little parrots on them and learn about the world at your own speed. Aye.
