In August I followed my no-more-than-one-new-book-a-week-rule and only purchased 5 new books (patting myself on the head). The one I’m most excited about is Margaret Atwood’s new novel The Heart Goes Last. A new novel by my favorite author – that doesn’t come along every day! Of course I’m also terrified to read it – trying hard to keep my expectations low, as it’s gotten mixed reviews.
I’ve also got mixed (excited/anxious) feelings about Murakami’s Wind/Pinball – two of his first novels, which have been out of print for nearly 30 years. I have no idea what to expect, but of course I have to read them. Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms is a novel I’ve wanted to read for a long time (I adore his short stories) – I’ve already started it and it’s very good.
Have you bought any new books lately?
