Ya know what's good to read...

Recommended Posts


Ya know what's a problem though, is that Amazon doesn't show pictures of the books' spines; so I can preview how they'll look on my bookcase.

 

It's problem enough that Yale University Press completely redid the look of their English Monarchs series, so now I can't have uniformitah on my bookshelf (respect mah uniformitah).

 

How am I suppose to know whether I want this or that book on my shelf (Penguin Monarchs' series went through a similarly unneeded transformation, by the way) without seeing the spine, I ax you?

 

(And I doubt Amazon is going to do anything about this because I don't think they like us genuine bibliophiles; I think they'd rather we all switch to the krapfest that is Kindle.)

Since the start of September, I have read

 

The Mysteries of Pittsburgh by Michael Chabon

End Zone by Don DeLillo

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

The American by Henry James

 

Plus "Rain" and "The Fall of Edward Barnard," the first two offerings in The Collected Short Stories of W. Somerset Maugham.

 

Hopefully this will heal some of the damage that watching reruns of 2 Broke Girls did to my brain.
