Did professors at your college sometimes leave old textbooks outside their office, offering them up as free gifts to anyone who wanted them on a first come, first serve basis? This happens most often, I think, at the start and end of term. I snapped the following photo today at The University of North Texas, outside a faculty office.

I’m willing to bet the book on the left won’t be flying off the shelf, even when it’s free. Access 95 was a terrible program 15 years ago (IMHO) when it was released. Unlike a fine wine, its quality has NOT improved with age. That text is overripe for the circular file.
