Boy, I really splurged this time. But nothing beats coming home to a box of books one day after you ordered it. I was expecting it next week. Thanks, Kinokuniya!
You’d think I’d start in on the books I’ve not read yet, but the first one I pounced on is Blankets. I had this strong urge to reread that after reviewing Thompson’s Carnet De Voyage. In fact, if Kino had Carnet listed on their crappy website, I would have ordered that as well and own all of Thompson’s books.
I have the first book about Varjak Paw and have been waiting for the second one in paperback for about a year. Was planning to get Joyce or Andrea back for me, but I needed something that will qualify me for free shipping yet not hurt too much.
Edward Gorey rocks. Read more about him here. I picked up the first Amphigorey at Book Castle for a steal, and it had the awesome Gashlycrumb Tinies which you can read online here to get a taste of his work.
So yeah, off to read myself to sleep now.
