ai, i've spotted it recently, but i'm in a philosophy mood at the moment with my reading - i reckon i can cram more confusing thoughts into my head. i'm trying read (get my head around) Faucault's (spelling) The Order of Things, but eee.... and i reckon my next purchase will be Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London - I've heard some good stuff bout it... maybe you can throw me a suggestion for a good read...? : )
I see that you have The Tao of Pooh on your shelf and that you gave it 5 stars. Are you aware of The Te of Piglet? I liked it even more than The Tao of Pooh. (Perhaps, you have read it, but you just haven't had time to put it on your shelf yet.)
You might like to join a group I started called Sharing a Personal Book Experience. Why not peruse the group and decide. If you like it, you might even want to share some of your own experiences.
Delighted to have you on my friends list. I handpicked my first 23, and in the past few days, 2 Shelfarians with obviously great taste in books have chosen me! I love to go through my friends' shelves and add things to my reading list. Maybe I'll ask you first whether you really like something--whether it passes the picky test. Then again, with 241 opinions I may not have to!
I was interested to see The Rabbits on your shelf. Have you seen any other books Shaun Tan has illustrated or written and illustrated? If you have a chance to see The Red Tree or The Arrival I'd love to know what you think of them, particularly The Arrival. More than 100 pages, completely without text, and deeply affecting, it's won 4 awards so far in the seven months since it was released. (Shaun is also a genuinely lovely guy, very unassuming, almost surprised that people enjoy his work. Oh, for just a hint of such talent...)
