Book Haul

I’ve acquired a number of books this month (too many!). My haul from last weekend’s trip to The Last Bookstore and The Iliad Bookshop yielded these gems:

  • Unicorn Highway by David Lee Jones
  • Twisted River by Siobhan MacDonald
  • The Crack in Space by Philip K. Dick
  • Men and Cartoons by Jonathan Lehem
  • Tamsin by Peter S. Beagle
  • Mona Lisa Overdrive by William Gibson

I was especially pleased I finally got to replace my damaged/discarded copy of Tamsin, with a hardcover, no less!

From Book of the Month Club, I got:

  • The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker
  • Homesick for Another World by Ottessa Moshfegh

From Amazon I ordered:

  • Universal Harvester by John Darnielle
  • In Calabria by Peter S. Beagle

I definitely need to stop buying books for a while, as it’s going to take me some time to get through all of these, and I already had a pretty hefty “to-read” list. It will take some resolve to resist the pull, since I find it pretty difficult to resist buying books.

  • Today I had the chance to go with a friend and visit Central Library, the main branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. It is amazing! Strongly recommend a visit if you’re ever in the LA area. There are more pictures and a little info about my trip on my blog. Link in bio.

What’s your favorite library?

  • Had the chance to check out Amazon Books today. Interestingly, they have two prices for everything: regular price or prime member price. I left with two books of poetry.

Strangely,nearly everyone at this mall was wearing all black but me.

What’s your most out-of-place shopping experience?
