It has been exactly one month and one day since I visited Half Price Books and for me, that's great. I also had a February coupon that I didn't want to waste so I finally went and here are the goods listed from top to bottom:
Farewell Summer, Ray Bradbury: Ever since this video I've been meaning to read more Bradbury.
Everything is Illuminated, Jonathan Safran Foer: I loved loved loved Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. In fact it was my favorite read of 2010. I could not be more excited about this one.
The Razor's Edge, W. Somerset Maugham: I read The Painted Veil in January and fell in love with Maugham. Many readers recommended this title after reading my review of The Painted Veil.
The Game, A. S. Byatt: I've never read any Byatt and thought this would be a good place to start since it's one of her earlier works.
Falling Man, Don DeLillo: I read White Noise in college and have yet to revisit DeLillo. This one is listed in my 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die book so I think it's going to be good.
Mr. Muo's Traveling Couch, Dai Sijie: I loved Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress and after reading the synopsis of this one I'm guessing it will be great as well.
East of Eden, John Steinbeck: I've had this one on my TBR forever but have been hesitant to press go because of it's daunting size. I decided I'm going to tackle it in '11.
