Library Loot: September 16th
No vlog today, because I usually make them on Thursday and yesterday my health took a nosedive. But I do have a photograph, inspired by Reading, Fuelled by Tea.
As you can see, this was a light week for me! I requested the audiobook of Amitav Ghosh’s Sea of Poppies after Teresa told me about it on Twitter. I was contemplating a reread anyway, since the second in the trilogy is about to be published, and I think listening to all of the wordplay would be great fun. I’ve had a hold on The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson for awhile now (before Carl announced the group read, because I would’ve waited to get it in October otherwise!), waiting for it to be published; I love gothic books, so I hope this lives up to its buzz! ;) Then there are the two books I picked up on a whim: A Thousand Times More Fair was in the new nonfiction section. It’s by Kenji Yoshino, a law professor, and is about justice in Shakespeare. The premise intrigued me so much that I found his first book, Covering, which is a combination memoir and reworking of the civil rights debate. I sat down and read a few pages from each, but still couldn’t decide which I wanted more, so I popped them both in my bag. Finally, I have no idea what A Candle for St. Jude is about, but Jenny recommended it to me so I’m excited to find out!
