Well, with the shipment of The Secret History to Singapore (!) I found myself in the possession of 4 BookMooch points today. Itching to try this out, I have mooched the following books:
Sirens and Other Daemon Lovers: Magical Tales of Love and Seduction ed. by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling, featuring Neil Gaiman, Joyce Carol Oates and others. I have read two of their anthologies so far and adored them tremendously. And found some fantastic new authors in the process. Really looking forward to this one!
Getting the Girl by Markus Zusak because I am determined to read everything ever wrote or will be written by this guy! He’s a freaking genius!
Wolf Boy: A Novel by Evan Kuhlman because it looks really interesting. It takes elements of the graphic novel and mixes it in with regular, good-ole-fashioned narrative. I’m interested to see if he pulls it off.
I’m going to hold on to that last point for awhile.
I’m so excited about these! I think I feel an addiction to BookMooch coming on! I really need to pull my books and see what I can share. I expect there are a lot, and, as one of my resolutions for next year is to read more of my OWN books, I will hopefully have many more.
If I don’t see you, which I doubt, have a happy and very SAFE New Year!
