What is the correct A/C refrigerant pressure for '04 Scion xB?

What is the proper air conditioning refrigerant pressure for a 2004 Scion xB? Should the pressure reading be made at a specific RPM? My A/C has been slowly loosing cooling over the last couple of years, now it really only cools well when traveling above 35~ mph, not so well at all in stop-and-go situations. Does it sound like I am on the right track to recharge the system? Works pretty well at steady-state speeds...

Mystery book mystery

I'm looking for a short mystery stories book I read in a library. One of the stories is where a character comes up a flight of stairs and thinks he sees something (a murder?) in someone's apartment, but it's actually some kind of mirrored reflection of a mirrored reflection of someone through a window across the street. The book/collection was published before 1996 and if I remember correctly, was all short story mysteries of 5 to 20 pages.

What books were originally included in the Tall Tarzan Gift Shelf set?

Does anyone own the Tall Tarzan Gift Shelf? It's a collection of a couple dozen 60s-era Burroughs Ballantine paperbacks in two cardboard cases, each ~ 5" x 15", with two tiers. There's a pic of the spine at the bottom of this page (which incorrectly lists the set as one case of 20 books). I'm trying to figure out how many and which titles were originally included in the full set of two cases. [more inside]
