Thom, take your time, no rush, we're going to need time to get over the awe and shock of seeing your accumulation anyway. ;-) Hope you feel better soon. And at least that means you probably have plenty of time to read. :-)

Lin | 266 comments Ditto...what Joseph said. Hope your recovery progresses smoothly Thom.

message 12: by Samantha A (new)

Samantha A Did SO WELL at the bookstore today! I found a few titles that I've been pining for so I am very happy.

I thought it was going to be a bummer today because I went to my first bookstore and found Cloud Atlas and The Yiddish Policeman's Union both for $1 each but when I went to pay the guy freaked out and told me that it was a mistake and he couldn't give them to me for $1. I didn't argue because I go there a lot and it would have been weird, but I was definitely bummed. Then I struck gold at the second shop :)

Here's what I picked up:
The Night Guest by Fiona McFarlane (Paperback, $1) [I've been NEEDING this in my life and happened to find it for A DOLLAR!!! I was freaking out]
The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty (paperback, $1) [this has been one I've had my eye on for a while]
Orientation: And Other Stories by Daniel Orozco (hardcover, $1) [I saw this here on GR a while ago and it looked so interesting! And that cover!]
The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.: A Novel by Adelle Waldman (paperback, $6) [This was mostly a cover buy, but the salesman was also reading it and said that the (female) author did an excellent job of portraying a man's thoughts, so I was intrigued]
Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch (hardcover, $9) [I didn't exactly enjoy The Dinner but I've been wanting this one pretty terribly and it just came out this year, so I couldn't pass it up. Hopefully it's better than The Dinner]

The Night Guest by Fiona McFarlane The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty Orientation And Other Stories by Daniel Orozco The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. A Novel by Adelle Waldman Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch

I'm pretty sure you're right, but since it was my usual used bookstore and he told me that they bought them for $3 each, I not only didn't want to make it weird for my future ventures into the store, but didn't want them to lose the potential $15 or so dollars they would make on them if I didn't take them for the dollar each. I've gotten plenty of great things there so I was willing to let them go. :/

I read it before, but it was my first Gaiman book and was expecting something much different. I didn't enjoy it much my first go, so I'm excited to give it another chance, especially after ADORING The Graveyard Book.
