My trip to the library, thankfully, yielded a number of slim, fast reads. This will hopefully allow me to stay on track with scheduled reads and enjoy a few diversions!
by Alan Bennett
This book has been in my hands so many times at B&N, but a few mentions around the blogoshere this week prompted me to finally pick it up. I read 20 of its 120 pages last night, and know I'll want to read the rest of this delightful book in a single sitting!
Familiar Essays by Anne Fadiman
Her previous essay collection, Ex Libris, and her book The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down were both wonderful. I plan to read a couple essays from this book as part of the 2009 mini-challenges.
Finally, a couple more graphic novels. Both of these were recommended by Claire at Kiss a Cloud. Reading these will complete my graphic novel experiment.
by Marguerite Abouet & Clement Oubrerie
This is Abouet's story of an Ivory Coast childhood set in the 1970's.
Kamung Boy is about Mat, a Muslim boy growing up in rural Malaysia in the 1950's where traditional life in the village (kampung) is rapidly changing.
