Home, Sweet Bookstore

Stan and I went to Literary Utopia yesterday. Here’s what we picked up:

The Children of Men

To Say Nothing of the Dog

Time Out of Joint

The Eyre Affair

The Big Over Easy

Obviously, we’re really into Science Fiction right now.

Okay, well, now we’re off to the beach, so I need to get going!

    I absolutely LOVED the Eyre Affair and all of the books that followed. Because you love books and all that I KNOW you’ll love them! You’ll have to tell me what you think of them!

    I’ll admit, I was a little nervous purchasing a novel by a writer I’d never heard of, but I decided to take a chance. I’m glad to know that you enjoyed the books. I know that if you loved them, then they must be good. I will let you know what I think!

    Wish I were there! I’m all of a sudden feeling an inkling to read some sci fi. Our friend Dr. H. would be proud; he’s teaching his Science and the Imagination class right now. You’ll have to let me know, particularly, how the Eyre Affair is. I’m so intrigued.

    Well, Jai, so far The Eyre Affair is wonderful! You should definitely read it! I’m just under halfway through, and having a very difficult time putting it down! I stayed up way too late last night reading “just one more chapter.” It’s sitting next to me on my desk calling to me. Every ounce of willpower that I have is working to keep me from just picking the book up and reading it right here at work!

    i’m glad you’re liking “The Eyre Affair.” Now you’ll just have to read all the rest of them. I don’t think I’ve read the last one yet…i’d have to look, though.have you ever read any gregory maguire? Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister changed me!

    I’ve already started looking for the other books in the series. Plus, there’s a fifth one coming out this year!As for Maguire, I read Wicked and debated on buying either Son of a Witch or Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister when we were at Powell’s. I decided on the Fforde books instead.I do plan to read his other works. And your comment has made up my mind to read Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister first!

    If you want to read <>Son of a Witch,<> you can always borrow it from me. Of course, that requires a short road trip. 🙂 It was good because it tied up some loose ends from the previous book, but it wasn’t as good as <>Wicked.<> I’m interested in <>Confessions,<> though. If you end up reading it before me, you’ll have to let me know what you think.

  8. Emily says:

    <>Confessions<> has the best discussion on beauty I have read in recent years. I didn’t like <>Son of a Witch<> nearly as much as I liked most of his other stuff.
