    Arnold Schoenberg "Theory of Harmony". I bought it at Borders so I know they have it. Not your traditional harmony book (look to Piston for that).

    If this doesn't interest you, you can also get some scores at Borders, from Bach to Stravinsky (anything newer is copyrighted).

    MIDI for Musicians by Craig Anderton is a classic that's as relevant today as it was when it was written since the MIDI spec has changed scarcely at all over the years. If you compose using MIDI (and I just happen to know that you do), you should have it on your shelf. $13.

    Borders uses Amazon for their online store, here's the link:

    "The Samplist" by Francis Ellen when it becomes available. Or maybe some UK music magazines.

    "The Samplist" looks interesting. I read it's about a failing music student . . . if I ever take I music class, that'll be me! I'll be able to relate to it . . . maybe . . . I don't know much else about it . . .

    Thanks for all the suggestions, now I really have no idea what to get . . .

    Sorry to dig up the past . . . but I ended up re-gifting the gift certificate.

    Sammy Spud - "How To Microwave A Potato" Microwave Cooking. I figure all starving musicians should have this one on hand.
