Sunday Salon- Time to Rest!
I've been reading so, so slowly lately. I'm still working on Big Machine but I hope to finish today. After that I really want to start The Girl in the Polka Dot Dress, by Beryl Bainbridge, for my first Europa Editions book this month. Then I want to start How Green Was My Valley, by Richard Llewellyn. And the graphic novel of The Kite Runner. And... and... and I love working in a bookstore.
This week I finished the manga biography of Gandhi recently published by Penguin as part of their new series; Che Guevara is next and I'm really enjoying this series so far. I can't wait for an opportunity to sell these books at the store. The Gandhi book was a great introduction to the life of this extraordinary person. Che was a really different person and I'm looking forward to seeing how the book handles his life story. The desk where I spend much of my day is in the middle of the graphic novel/manga section of the store, so I'm always coveting all the pretties that come through. I have a pile growing to the side! I'm progressing painfully slowly through Revolution. The hardest part of the job is playing catchup on young adult and kids' books; I'm trying to add more to my reading but it's a slow process.
Well, I'm off to sip more tea and yawn. What are you up to today? I hope you have a great Sunday!
