I love getting books in the post! So excited to have finally found a book of Goran Simić's poetry! Looking forward to diving into Giraffe too.
"...my life has been a recurrent tale of my failure to truly understand my peril until it is too late to turn back."
Isabella is just the most lovable heroine!
When you're supposed to be dusting but you end up admiring your books instead...
When I really, really like a book (and I loved this one), I make a playlist for it. If you'd like, you can listen to the one I made for Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore here: http://8tracks.com/glimmerkin/mr-penumbra-s-24-hour-bookstore-1
THAT WAS SO GOOD. I'd have finished it in 24 hours had it not been such a busy time right now. I was totally gripped, and loved the writing style and the interweaving of the themes of books and new technologies, and the sense of adventure! This is one of the most "me" books I have ever read. This book and I understand each other. Thank you, Robin Sloan!
I watched Immortal Beloved last night for the first time and it inspired my next book choice! I bought this after listening to Rita Dove's Poetry Society Annual Lecture just over a year ago. Looking forward to starting it today or tomorrow.
