It was the annual book sale at the local library over the weekend, and, in the spirit of giving and community support, I had to go. (Maybe it was the books… You know how it is… )
I found some good titles, and without much more ado, here are the books:
- Some Nerve – Patty Chang Anker (NF)
- The Kingdom by the Sea – Paul Theroux (travel UK)
- I’m Down – Mishna Wolf (autobio) (NF)
- The Best American Short Stories 1997 – Annie Proulx (ed.) (F)
- The Best American Travel Writing 2001 – Paul Theroux (ed.) (NF)
- Bad Dirt: Wyoming Stories – Annie Proulx (2004) (F)
- The Party that Lasted 100 Days: The Late Victorian Season – Hilary Evans, Mary Evans (1976) (NF)
What to choose, what to choose….
I ended up having to sort out my book shelves to make space for the new additions, and, in the process, giving back two big bags of books to the FOL to share the love. (Pats myself on the back for such a noble achievement.)
I decided that if I haven’t read the book (or even pulled it off the shelf) in the last few years, obvs I’m not that interested in reading it, so back to the FOL it goes, which, for some of them, was where I picked them up last time. The endless cycle of life. 🙂
In the meantime, I’m reading The Lizard Cage (Karen Connelly), a really good novel about a political prisoner in confinement in Burma….
