I paid my weekly visit to the library today, and came away with the following books:

The first English translation of Verne's original manuscript, translated and edited by Frederick Paul Walter and Walter James Miller
Out of Thin Air: Dinosaurs, Biirds, and Earth's Ancient Atmosphere
by Peter D. Ward
