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.
