Consumer Anxiety

My craftiness having been honed as a result of being unemployed, I went yesterday to test a website for a software company (something like that) and was rewarded with a $35 gift card.  I use part of it to buy a few (bad) books I need for research but have ten dollars remaining.  I don’t want to let the money languish on the card lest I forget I have it, so the question remains: what to buy?

My on-going to read/buy list:
