Books! *glomp*

Walked to the library today
(first, feast on that: I walked to my library.)
(that’s so COOL!),
picked up a few things to make my still unpacked bookshelves feel less lonely:

Villete, Charlotte Bronte
The Handmaid’s Tale, Margret Atwood
Mere Anarchy, Woody Allen
Wifey, Judy Blume
Dream When You’re Feeling Blue, Elizabeth Berg
The Aleph & Other Stories, Jorge Luis Borges
Puro Cuento, Sandra Cisneros
Durable Goods, Elizabeth Berg
Summerland, Michael Chabon
Wonder Boys, ” ”
Gentlemen of the Road, ” ”

I’m most ‘specially excited for the Chabon novels–
I keep starting them in bookstores,
inevitably, fifteen minutes before closing.


As if your need to go home is greater than my need to finish a book,
Barnes & Noble employees.

I anticipate several afternoons at Beantown and Jameson Brown,
or even a wander down to the Sierra Madre cemetery,
to sit under an enormous cedar and read stories to ghosts.

They’ll appreciate the company, I’m sure.

    Oh so jealous. I’m still chipping away at books I’ve had going for… well…longer than I care to admit 🙂

    Loved Handmaid’s Tale. Let me know how Summerland is — bought it years ago for a $1, but still haven’t read it.
    Walking to a library is incredible. Just walking period is great.

    Speaking of “Gentlemen of the Road” and the Middle Ages, you may want to read my book “The Jews of Khazaria” for the historical context to Chabon’s novel. You can also visit for some of that information.
