Bought and Read This Week

Books Read:

Martyrs: Innocence, Vengeance, and Despair in the Middle East by Joyce Davis
What No One Tells The Bride by Marg Stark
The New Yorker Book of Literary Cartoons collected by Bob Mankoff

This puts me at 115 books read this year and 31,231 pages.

Books Bought:
Mystic River by Dennis LeHane
The Bonfire of the Vanities by Tom Wolff
Couldn't Keep It To Myself by Wally Lamb and the Women of York Correctional Institution
Crow Lake by Mary Lawson
How The Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents by Julie Alvarez
The Bloomsbury Guide to English Literature
Shutterbabe by Deborah Kogan

I also picked up four books for the school's library on interviewing, dressing professionally, and working at your first job.

Total cost: $16 and some change! I also got to spend an hour and half wandering McKays and count is as work time!


  1. Enjoy Mystic River - one of the few instances of a book and movie being approximately the same quality!

  2. I'm just catching up, so I just saw this post today - I've been looking for Mystic River for a while, but it's been out of stock at all the book stores around me forever! I can't wait to read it!
