I do actually read the books I buy and acquire, lest you think that all my finds just pile up. I mean, some of them pile up, but lots of them get read, too. But I do keep getting them. Here are some that crossed my threshold this week.
I finally bought Robin Black's short story collection If I Loved You I Would Tell You This. It's just out in paperback and I can't wait to read this.
I picked up Jennifer Egan's A Visit from the Goon Squad after it won the Pulitzer. I have a good track record with Pulitzer winners and I'm looking forward to this.
It wouldn't be a week in books without something new from Europa Editions, one of my favorite publishers; I got their newly released novel French Leave, by Anna Gavalda, and Gourmet Rhapsody, an oldy-but-goody by Muriel Barbery, author of The Elegance of the Hedgehog. Both look great!
Have you read any of these? Do you want to do? Let me know what you're reading today and what's new on your shelf!
