more book talk

A successful trip to the bookstore
And now for more book talk... We made a trip to the bookstore on Saturday to stock up on new books. I'm on a book bender at the moment. After finishing The Interestings last week, and the new Andrew Sean Greer (due out in June) and Kate Atkinson the week before, I needed another good read. I found it in Jess Walter's Beautiful Ruins, a book I picked up countless times in the store but always put down because the description on the back made the book unappealing to me. I'm glad I finally gave in, as it's a charming, entertaining book. It's a perfect summer read if you're looking for a book to take on vacation. Sutton is up next!

Did you see that interview with Hilary Mantel in the NY Times book review? She recommended Fingersmith. Have you read that one? I'm thinking that one might break this book distraction I have currently.

Yes, I read the Hilary Mantel interview, but did she recommend Fingersmith? I don't remember that part in the interview. I read it years ago when it first came out and I was living in London. I was a fan after Tipping the Velvet so I went to the event and heard her read from Fingersmith. It's a light and fun read you could totally get carried away by...

Okay, I'll add it to the list. I've got to get out of this book funk!
