Things have been quiet here lately (again!), I’m sorry! It’s just that after analyzing texts all day, I’m just too burned out to do the same, though much less ambitious, academic and coherent, in a blog post. I really love talking about books, I just can’t find the energy for reviews at the moment. Then I thought many of you probably can’t always find the energy to read a lot of long (stretching the definition in my case) reviews, so I’ll just try posting pretty book covers and things along the line of “a great title I was recommended” or “Hey, look what I found in a box outside the uni library”. Hope that’s okay with everyone (feedback, complaints (gently-phrased, thesis-writing is killing what’s left of my nerves) and ideas are very welcome)!
So today it’s “Look what I found in a box outside the uni library”-day. They have a box where they put rejected books that anyone is free to take home. I love that box, there are real gems sometimes. And sometimes unbelievably smelly, dusty and sticky books. But yeah, today’s find was pretty good:
Main Street by Sinclair Lewis
The Assistant by Bernard Malamud
The Bang and The Whimper: Apocalypse and Entropy in American Literature by Zbigniew Lewicki
Also, after freaking out over my thesis outline the last couple of weeks, I’ve decided to reward myself with a quick fun book. And I remembered today that a) I still have a gift voucher from my birthday and b) unbelievably I still haven’t read the new Flavia book, so tomorrow I hope to own this one:
Hope you’re all doing well and what are you reading?
