We are fortunate to live just a half mile from the closest library. The library is open past 6pm only 2 nights a week and I never seem to get which nights right… until tonight! It’s built into the side of a hill and looks more like a bunker or a bomb shelter than a libraryI managed to pick up some good books, including:
- Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell for an informal Reading Buddies parallel read with Erin, Ellen and Anita.
- Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane since Mystic River was very compelling (review forthcoming), and the library had this Lehane just waiting there on the shelf for me.
- Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami because it’s probably time for another Murakami.
- Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris – it’s summer and I need a easy, light read in here somewhere.
I’m considering committing to Infinite Jest at some point this summer, but I think I’ll need to get through Cloud Atlas first.
Some “real” posts should be coming up on here shortly! Free time has been at something of a minimum lately, in a good way, though things should be slowing down a bit soon. Well, as soon as we assemble our new Ikea shelves, go to the circus, climb, run, visit some friends across the river, and explore the City Museum by flashlight. After that I should have some time.
