Darwin at last

Many months ago I mentioned that the 29-volume works of Charles Darwin were being reprinted in an affordable paperback edition by New York University Press. Though Darwin's works are now online, there is still great pleasure and convenience in being able to sit back and read a regular book. So I ordered a set for the CORE library. After being on the waiting list for the reprint and fixing a mix-up with the credit card, I am delighted to report that the works have just arrived. They look great. If you're in the market for some interesting reading (and certainly definitive reading in the origins debate), I definitely recommend the set.
