New Books!

To celebrate the 50 book mark, I finally went out and used a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card I'd been hoarding. My purchases totaled $50.51, all in paperback, the easier to fit in my suitcase. Perfect, yes?

My selections were:

Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Tongue by Kyung-Ran Jo

The Whiskey Rebels by David Liss

Since I've started using Bookmooch, I have three books on the way:

Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel

A Taste for Adventure: A Culinary Odyssey Around the World by Anik See

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams

Will I finish all these by the end of the year? I doubt it, since I will also be contending with the formidable list for my Sixteenth Century British Literature course, not to mention my Theater in Society course....but at least I feel secure of quality reads in the forseeable future.
