The teeny weeny peek yielded these:
I was quite literally hogging a number of trade paperbacks in my arms aside from those pictured above (One Day by David Nicholls, The Black Book by Orhan Pamuk, White Noise by Don DeLillo). When I was done snatching titles off the shelves, it was then that I realized that I had to pick only the ones that I really, truly want to read and, more importantly, will make time to read. After much thought, I decided to
- Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese - I read a sample of this on Candy the Kindle some couple of years back, but never got around to purchasing it until I had completely forgotten about it. Lucky to have found one on sale!
- The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht - One of those books that has, for the longest time, intrigued me, but which I wouldn't purchase for the full price.
- Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson - This book keeps popping up on my "recommended titles" in my Amazon account, and just last year I saw a hardbound copy for 50% off at NBS. I don't know why I hesitated buying it. Perhaps it's because I was bound to come across a much cheaper copy anyway? ;)
That was one of the best teeny weeny peeks I've done in my life. Heeee. :D
