Good morning, Sunday Saloners! It's been cold this weekend, more so than usual, and that's messed with the routine a bit. The weather is perfect for relaxing by the fire pit in our backyard, and reading on the iPad, as we did last night.
On Friday, we had a Friends of the Library book sale. The husband, brother and I bought home quite a good pile. Even before I had browsed through the first rack, the husband had already picked up his books and was ready to bill. (What!!) Anyways, here's what we picked.
1. I Don't Know How She Does it by Allison Pearson
2. No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy
3. The Road by Cormac McCarthy (even though I already have an ebook version of this one)
4. Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
5. The Book Of Lost Things by John Connolly
6. Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
7. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
8. Bag of Bones by Stephen King
9. Black House by Stephen King and Peter Straub
10. War Stories II by Oliver North (The husband digs war and military stories...)
11. The Healthy Kitchen by Andrew Weil and Rosie Daley
12. The Science Fiction Bestiary by Robert Silverberg (...and science fiction)
13. The Year's Best Science Fiction by Gardner Dozois
Of the lot, I'm most excited about Gillian Flynn's book. I can't wait to browse through the Andrew Weil cookbook as well. More than his recipes, I like to read about his thoughts behind the recipes. His cookbooks tend to be very thought-provoking and inspiring.
I'm still reading through Monsters of Men which is leaving me with very little incentive to log onto my PC. It's a huge book, and I'm only halfway through it, but it does feel like a good read so far.
How's your day shaping up?
