It was certainly a very bookish Father’s Day for me yesterday. My daughter, who is nearly 1 year old now and who is taking a peek below, gave me a membership to the Quality Paperback Book Club. The books did not arrive in time so I am looking forward to receiving 7 new books sometime soon. I won’t tell you what they are yet, that will have to wait until they arrive. Checking the mailbox is going to be one of the key events of my day until they arrive…
My wife’s gift was a box from Amazon.com. Inside were some books I have really been looking forward to acquiring. The contents:
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – I’ve seen several reviews of this book on different blogs and it seems everyone loves it. I don’t usually read YA books but I couldn’t pass on this one with everyone gushing about it.
- The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami – Read about Murakami on The Millions blog a few weeks ago and decided I should try one of his books. This was held up by many as his best.
- Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson – A Sci-Fi novel, specifically Cyber-punk, that has been reviewed highly. It is even on Times 100 Greatest Books list.
I will be sure to post about my QPB books when they arrive.
