hoollyyy mann you got alllott of books there, if you plan on reading all those then your yeeep!! well juss dropping byyy..!! Railynn here♥

A Librarian said...

You aren't the first to point that out. What can I say? I like books.

Jim said...


Since my book is in your pile of possibly notables to
be read, maybe it's up next? Or soon?

I hear Sena Jeter Naslund's Abundance is great, by the way, and Claire Massud's The Emperor's Children, too. I've heard authors both read from them and can't wait to get my hands on the books. Alice McDermott's new one, too, After This (?).

So many books, so little time -- oh, that's what you said.


A Librarian said...

I will have to check but I don't think I have a copy yet. I did get a couple of boxes in the mail today but didn't have time to open them before I had to leave for meetings.

Once I have the book you should be on my to be read immediately pile since I seem to remember being the one to suggest you for the long list.

Jim said...

In that case, thank you!
