The stack on the left is what I purchased from their "For Sale" cart and the stack on the right are my to read now's.
Reading TPS prompted me to go to the library today to get Nine Stories by J.D. Salinger after reading Nick rave on about it for nearly 3 pages. I am not a huge Salinger fan based on Catcher In The Rye. Yes I know I am not in the popular opinion on that book but to me at best it was just eh. I never found it great and was never moved by it in any way and I really couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about when it was a must read in school. So I was curious what Nine Stories was all about and figured short stories may be a great way for me to better experience what Salinger had to offer.
The comics I will mostly take a peek at once Alex has read through them all first - I get those mostly for him.
TPS also reminded me that it has been 10 years since I picked up a Vonnegut book so I decided to get off my lazy behind and re-read Cat's Cradle. Vonnegut is a literary genius and I was disturbed to realize we didn't have any on our shelves before I went to the library. Cat's Cradle is one of the best books I have ever read. I am hoping we have something tucked in one of the still unpacked boxes of books we have in our spare room. So I was overjoyed as I went to leave and passed the For Sale cart and found all of these gems:
I have to mention that all 6 of those bad boys cost me only $3.00 AND now I know for sure that I have two Vonnegut's on my shelves. BIG HUGE SCORE. I am constantly buying books. The way most women buy clothes or shoes that's how I am with books. I am always reading something and sometimes, multiple somethings. I am sure I will be reading both Vonnegut's before the month is out but the rest I just felt the need to have on my shelves. They felt like at home library must haves and now I do!
Enough of all this typing about all the awesome books I have to read - I am going to go read them!
