|Toni Morrison's just-released short novel and the one John Crowley novel I've yet to read|
Had to take a boxful of books from my mother (and some of my own) to McKay's on Sunday, so I took the store credit and bought some books for near-immediate and later reading/browsing. The Morrison book I bought from their bookcase for new books, with the rest being used books.
|The DeLillo will be read later; the Ogawa is a damn good story that deserves a huge readership in any language in which it may be published.|
|Currently reading the Allende. It's hard to describe only 31 pages into a 300 page book/memoir/cookbook.|
|Irritated that the usually easy-to-remove price sticker ripped off part of the cover to the Vega play, as it's a nice copy. Loved Kundera in English, so I thought why not re-read this particular novel in Spanish translation?|
|Tolstoy in Russian and Böll in German.|
|The French language books I picked up this time, including a Rabelais (likely modernized)|
|And if in 10-20 years I ever get around to attempting to learn Japanese, I'll at least have another textbook to consult.|
