This morning, in a fit of OCD, I started counting books. I quit when the numbers got too much and said to my husband, “Let’s go to the bookstore this afternoon. The big one on Stevens Creek.” Because that’s what you do when you have too many books, right?
Absolutely. There’s some great ones in that stack of yours. What did you buy?
We bought all of them! But my husband’s selections were Jennifer Egan, James Webb, and Gillian Flynn (I read Gone Girl long long ago, but gave it away, so now we’ve bought it twice).
Geez., yes we do. I ought to take a pic of my TBR pile – just b/c.
Btw – The Snow Child – will be interested to see what you think…personally, it was a weird book for me.
The Snow Child was odd and strange, but I just had to keep turning the pages.
Me too. I finished I think b/c I just had to know how a story like that ended.
I wish I could read Gone Girl again for the first time. I loved that book.
I feel that way about A Visit From The Goon Squad.
Another great one. I just bought a copy of The Keep and am looking forward to diving in.
One of my prized book possessions is an autographed copy of A Visit From The Goon Squad. It’s on the shelf that I told my kids, “When I kick off and you’re getting rid of my books, the ones on this shelf are SPECIAL.”
we are soul sisters, you and I (…and Rex), forever linked in our book-buying ways.
