Halo, I see that there's a new Murakami story in this week's NewYorker:http://www.newyorker.com/fiction/features/2013/10/28/131028fi_fiction_murakami
I love your Tom Waits quote.Jim
Close enough! Thank you. I'm reading it now, what book did you get?
It is good to know somebody likes it. I tried Cryptonomicon and quit. If I like this one I may try Crypto again.
Glad it made it to you with no problems.
Did you already finish 'Infinite Jest'? I just looked it up and it has pretty high ratings. It also has 1100 pages. Was it worth it?
Ha, ha, I love your avatar. Where did you find it?
Just came across this book and thought of you: The Perfume LoverA Personal History of Scent by Denyse BeaulieuHappy Easter (belated).
That's the thing- I like reading the new stuff that's come out. I don't want a hardback and I don't want to wait a year for the paperback. E reading gets me where I want to go. Maybe try an reading app, see if it would suit you. I read more on my iPad than my Kindle some days
I think you'll like BEING DEAD. Jin Crace is new find author this year
It was on a book/ reading blog I subscribe to. (Book Riot). I hesitated before sending it to you...remembering you were trying to curb your perfume habit and all!
What is that site again that you buy perfume from? The one that has book smells, etc.
WARNING: Danger of shopping frenzy ahead:http://bookriot.com/2013/01/29/dead-writers-perfume/All I can say is thank goodness they don't offer eau de Bukowski!
Just ignore that! The recommends get better with time. And what they offer when starting an e-account may be different than your book account as not everything is in both formats
I'm telling you- books show up while your lying in bed. E-readers!
Oh Halo, REVENGE:ELEVEN DARK TALES is brilliant. A setting from one tale shows up in another. A character that is a curator of a Torture Museum is someone's inept uncle in another. A secretary is the murderer of the doctor from the previous story. Brilliant, just brilliant
I think I found that on your shelf. And now the review of WHAT WE TALK ABOUT … Another author I have never heard of . I'm going to try Jim Crace's new one HARVEST. Also an author I've never heard of! What a year for reading.
Brilliant pic, Halo!
I will hold you to it,for the coffeee! :) I've been fighting somethiong off for a week,I'd rather fight it than give in.Your daughter is a trooper! Going home to soup and grilled cheese,elderberry tea and my book tonight!I am done for the day!
Mel, Just found this photo of Shrkston...taken today! This is Elco beach. I love the place,but better in summer.
