It’s been awhile, I’ve slowed down some. But I received some books I ordered from Amazon over the weekend. They are having a “buy 2, get 1 free” sale on Random House books and my wife let me use the $5 off coupon she got for pre-ordering the new Harry Potter book. Couldn’t pass on those deals. I even bought a book that I hadn’t even heard of before, I don’t remember the last time I made a book purchase that spontaneous. Without further ado, here they are:
A Short History of Nearly Everthing by Bill Bryson – I’ve been wanting to read this for some time now. It’s gotten very good reviews and sounds fascinating.
Saturday by Ian McEwan – I enjoyed Atonement so much I decided I needed to read another McEwan novel.
Under the Black Flag: The Romance and Reality of Life Among the Pirates by David Cordingly – What can I say? I love pirates! And the cover is awesome. I couldn’t resist. This was my spontaneous purchase, spontaneous like a pirate… or something.
