My October Purchases

OK, I am going to go ahead and blame it on pregnancy brain, but I cannto recall all the books I bought last month. I DO know that I bought

The World Without An End (although I do not get my hands on it until Christmas -- it is to be a gift from Craig) This si the Ken follett sequel to Pillars of the Earth.

American Gangster (which I am very bummed about. I did not read the fine print and it is a "novelization of the screenplay). I am a huge denzel washington fan and thought it would be good to read the book before seeing the movie. However, I put it aside once I realized I was essentially reading the screenplay.....This was a first for me, and may explain how we end up having so many books published!!!!)

What is the What by Dave Eggers (loved his last book and this one just came out in paperback)

Playing for Pizza by John grisham. (I know, I know, but i just cannot leave his books alone).

I really want to read What is the What. I need to put it on my list. Bummer about the American Gangster book, but thanks for the warning.

We have the What is What book around here somewhere in hard cover. Jonathan bought it because he thought it looked interesting and he thought I would like it. Somehow it has been shuffled around and isn't even in my to-read pile. I'll have to find Jonathan's. ;^)

As for John Grisham - it happens to all of us, we find an author or two that makes us cringe maybe a tad - but if we enjoy it, eh. Let's see, my authors would probably be Sophie Kinsella a.k.a Madeline Wickham and Marian Keyes. :^)
