Wish List

Wow. A lot of posts on this Wednesday. I’ma busy lady.

Here are the newest books I’ve discovered this week and hope to read at some point in my life. And this Saturday will mark the return of my round up post. I’ve missed doing those for like, what? Three weeks, I think? Life. You know? (a.k.a. Lazy. You know?)

Over the Edge of the World – Laurence Bergreen
Shirley Jackson: Novels and Stories – Shirley Jackson
The Facebook Effect – David Kirkpatrick
The Dream of Perpetual Motion – Dexter Palmer
The Empire of the Summer Moon – S. C. Gwynne
Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. – Sam Wasson
I Was Told There’d Be Cake – Sloane Crosley
Light Boxes – Shane Jones
The Colony – Jillian Marie Weise

The Facebook Effect sounds like such a good book even though I was totally hesitant to admit that I was interested in reading it. But, let’s face it. Millions of people around the world have come to rely socially on a program that was created by a kid in a dorm room. That’s crazy!

As I’ve gone on and on about, Tana French’s novel is out RIGHT NOW. I don’t have any money to buy it until Friday and that is making me incredibly sad faced.

Also, Light Boxessounds INSANE.

    Funny trivia: The Facebook Effect author lives in my building. He interviewed us when we wanted to buy the apt. See… who needs online networks? 🙂

    I mean, the internet is just a fad, after all! Think he'll give us a bunch of free, signed copies? No? Okay.
