And I spent less than $100 at Coffee Buy the Book today.
Three of these were book club selections (The Freedom Writers Diary by Erin Gruwell, The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant, and The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon). She has all the Edenwilde book club selections in except for The Good German, I think.
I bought Cormac McCarthy's The Road because when I looked at the Pulitzer Prize winners list from Babs, it was the only winner from the last ten or so years that I hadn't read. I really disliked his trilogy books, which is why I hadn't picked it up before.
On Jen's suggestion, I got a used paperback copy of Ken Follett'sThe Pillars of the Earth.
I used to love Anne Tyler's books when I was a teenager and in college but haven't read one in years, so I'm trying out Digging to America.
I also bought Stephen Colbert's I Am America and So Can You. Nuff said.
I heard an interview with Alice Sebold about her new book, The Almost Moon so I asked about it, and they are ordering it.
Now I wish it would rain for about a week so I could stay in with some tea and work my way through these. . .
