I found the book on the floor by my bed and brought it down to him. I saw that he’d already packed the other magazines and books into his backpack and was waiting by the stairs for me. He’d had the pack for at least a decade, and during his bicycle everywhere phase in his late twenties he’d always had it with him, sometimes stuffed with fliers for parties or raves, others with all the clothes and personal affects he’d take along on a three-week road trip.

With only minutes to go, I bid $1800. A moment later the bid came back at $1850. I realized almost too late that the other guy probably had a reserve max bid set up and the computer would bid back for him until it reached some pre-set limit. With time running out I decided to go for it. I guessed his reserve would be $2000, gambling on the human penchant for nice, round numbers.
