February: despite it all, it's starting out on the right foot
I also just finished The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler -- the copyright page of my Vintage Crime/Black Lizard edition says it was originally published in 1939, but it's still very cool. I'm waiting for new crime books from the UK, so I think I'll spend some time reading through the Marlowe novels while the books are in transit.
For February I have like zero book plans except to get through these ARCs that are sitting here waiting to be read. There's so much I really want to read, not all of it current, so I'm going to see what mood I'm in before committing to a particular book or books to write about. I'll surprise myself.

What? You get sweets with your books from Powell's? Am I reading this correctly?ReplyDelete
If so, why isn't this world renown?
What? You get sweets from Powell's along with your books? Is this true or am I imagining it? If so, it should be world renown.ReplyDelete
That's from Indiespensable, Powell's signed books club. Io get all kinds of goodies -- ARCs, food, coffee, a mug, travel mug, tote bag -- something different every week. Usually the products are made by local people -- and they're usually very cool. $39.99 like every six weeks or so.Delete
I mean, something different every time, not week.ReplyDelete
Did I see ORFEO listed? I am writing my review now. Looking forward to your thoughts.ReplyDelete
Yep -- Orfeo. I hope to get to it in March. I'll wait til I read it to look at your review.Delete
