In other book news, I got my Indiespensable package today which contained a signed copy of J.M. Coetzee's The Childhood of Jesus:
And while this probably isn't any big deal to most people, it's my second favorite signed edition since Adam Johnson's The Orphan Master's Son. Not that I'd ever sell it, but I love J.M. Coetzee's work so this is meaningful.
that's it for now ... I am just finishing Stephen King's The Shining and I've already finished his Dr. Sleep in the spirit of reading scary stuff this month; since the two are connected, I'll be writing about them together.
Anyway, congratulations to Eleanor Catton for her win. She's only 28!
