I just returned from Key West. Every year, my mom's boss throws a fishing tournament to raise money for diabetes research (her son was diagnosed with type 1 when he was five). Three whole days in KW with my mom and sis - talk about fun in the sun! No, I didn't go fishing (that's not my cup of tea) - instead I spent my days at the spa, exploring KW, and shopping for books. Yep, I hit up two bookshops while I was in KW and I loved every minute of it. I hadn't been inside an actual bookstore in ages, so I took my time browsing the shelves and breathing in all that bookish air. Here's what I ended up buying:
What do you think? Not a bad bunch, right? I've already read the Strout (thank you NetGalley!!), but I had to have a physical copy of it. I'm actually thinking of buying the UK version of it, because I love their cover and I love the book so much. As for the other books, they've all been on my wish list and now I have them on my bookshelf - hurrah! I'm excited for the Auster and Mitchell. Have you read any of these? Which do you recommend I start with?
