I just bought...
"King of Torts" by John Grisham
"Shake Hands With the Devil" by Romeo Dallaire
"The Colour of Law" by Mark Giminez
St. Petersburg - Andrey Biely
Headcrusher - Garros-Evdokimov
A Hero of Our Time - Mikhail Lermontov
The Samurai - Shusaku Endo
Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves - P.G. Wodehouse
Gulity - Anna Kavan
Plus Various Graphic Novels.
All from Foyles as per...
Any way Foyles might consider opening a US branch, say in the SC Kansas metropolis of Wichita? Looks like another great haul you've got there.
I though you already had this. I'm sure I remember asking you about it a year or so back.
Anyway, for me:
To A God Unknown, John Steinbeck
The Log From The "Sea Of Cortez", John Steinbeck
Close to finishing my Steinbeck collection now.
I doubt it, this one only hit my radar screen recently. Perhaps you're mixing it up with 'Silence' or 'Scandal' by the same author? Or perhaps I did a while back?
The Sword in the Stone by T.H. White
Gracie: A Love Story by George Burns
Another Chance to Dream by Lynn Kurland
Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe
Sharpe's Tiger by Bernard Cornwell
At First Sight - Nicholas Sparks
Echo Park - Michael Connelly
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
Saturday by Ian McEwan
Evening by Susan Minot
House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III
Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos
Lost and Found by Carolyn Parkhurst
Pretty Little Mistakes by Heather McElhatton
No Good Deed by Tom Basinski
In the Beauty of the Lilies by John Updike
All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren
Angela's Ashes - Frank McCourt
Black Swan Green - David Mitcheel (Even though I already read it, which makes the purchase both stupid and sad)
Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell
Everything Is Illuminated - Some dude (Hardcover $1 at the library--was a steal)
Gosh, I'm poor. Back to the library I go.
Yes, perhaps Silence. I've been toying with buying The Samurai for well over a year now since nobody else browsing my Borders seems to want it. The Peter Owen Modern Library edition - those dark covers with olive slats that are a bit spooky.
Blood Meridian, Cormac McCarthy
Winterwood, Patrick McCabe
July's People, Nadine Gordimer
Those covers are probably my favourite amongst contemporary publishing and Peter Owen also have one of the best catalogues. I've discovered a number of favourite authors after those distinctive covers caught my eye...
In book buying news:
The Futurological Congress - Stanislaw Lem
Debt of Honer by Tom Clancy
Bought today at thrift shop
D.H. Lawrence, Sons and Lovers
Robert Short, The Gospel according to Peanuts
I went to have a look at them again and wondered where I'd got the idea they were olive slats when they were nothing of the sort. Then I saw Anna Kavan's Sleep Has His House:
The Vanishing by Bentley Little
Messiah Node by Lyda Morehouse
Eternity Road by Jack McDevitt
Hominids by Robert J. Sawyer
You are not the only one. I hit the salvation army. Also, you can get some ok deals from Amazon.com - and get used books - if you have the patience to wait.
