For those curious to know what I receive, what I buy new, and what I find in a Nashville-area used bookstore, here are some of the books I've purchased or received over the past two weeks (there are few left out for a post later dealing mostly with a similar theme). Since there are more than three dozen books here, I'll just make the pictures large and let you read them, with only stack hints to which is a review copy (the first picture here), which are books I bought new (the Sparrow art book series to the left in picture 2, and all the books in picture 3), and which are used books I bought for $10 or less (pictures 2 and 4, minus the Sparrow books to the left of picture 2). Feel free to ask questions about what I thought about some of these books, if I have read/enjoyed the ones listed (I've read 16 of them to date), or anything along those lines.
The books whose titles you might not know are (second-from-top), Zoran Živković's Serbian original for his upcoming novella The Ghostwriter and (third-from-top) the fur-covered edition of Dave Eggers' adaptation of Maurice Sendak's (and of the screenplay Eggers and Spike Jonze wrote for the movie adaptation) Where the Wild Things Are, called simply The Wild Things (just finished it, loved it, might review it in the near future).
