Reading Roundup (The Almost Wordless Edition)




Didn't actually acquire anything this week (how's that for self control?). Here are a few that I picked up a few weeks ago and just dug out of a pile on a living room chair.

Keep reading. And hey--share a link to your favorite or best book-related post of the week below, why doncha?

Nice grabs. All four look great. The Demoniacs especially

Thanks! I actually spent a little money--well, more than I usually spend--on that one. I was going to do this books-published-in-the-year-of-your-birth challenge, so I ordered it up. Other books from my birth year? A Clockwork Orange, Fail Safe, Pale Fire, and The Ipcress File by Len Deighton.

I fizzled out on the challenge.

Hi - I added a couple posts for kids books. One is a post on Stocking Stuffer ideas using books instead of candy and the other is for Toto's Tale which is great for kids 8+.

Thanks for posting the linky. I added it to my Sunday master list. Thanks! Tina "The Book lady"

I love Elinor Lipman's books, and I do remember particularly liking Alice Thrift :)

Hope you enjoy all your books!

Pardon me -- I overlooked your response! That's a good idea, books of your birth challenge. There's only so much time, though, right?, just to cover the basics.

Your birth year was a fantastic year in lit, though. It's the year David Foster Wallace was born too, so how could it not be a divine year? And don't forget The Golden Notebook and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and The Man in the High Castle -- what a weird book; I Ching parallel reality shit, still scratching my head over that one.

I'll have to look up my birth year, '69, and see if that year compares.

I'm thinking of maybe doing a best reads of the year post, something like that to put a bow on 2010.

I hope you're enjoying The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag. I read it recently.

Loved it, Nikki-ann! I thought it better than the first.
