Four new books

Ah, books. If I’m not buying them on impulse, they’re being given by friends. In any case, they keep on piling up. I’m not complaining, though. When it comes to books, I’m an unapologetic hoarder.

  • The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen. His name keeps popping up on the Tumblr blogs I regularly visit, so I figure he must be something. Also: A friend highly recommends him. I trust her because she has nice legs. Yeah.
  • Native Tongue by Carl Hiaasen. I’ve read two Hiaasen books and LOL’d at both of them. I want a third serving… and perhaps more. Why not?
  • Spanking the Donkey: Dispatches from the Dumb Season by Matt Taibbi. One of the reasons why I read Rolling Stone is Matt Taibbi. His polemical articles on politics and media are somewhat reminiscent of the late Hunter S. Thompson’s ruthless gonzo attacks. Authors with balls, I’ll devour ’em like pies (um, that sounds gay, right? But whatever, man). Devil’s Horn to Boojie Basilio for giving me his extra copy of this.
  • “A Dance With Dragons” by George R.R. Martin. I’m a big fan of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series. ‘Nuff said.

One day I’ll be old and decrepit and useless, but not bored. What did the ants teach the grasshopper again?

  1. I hoard books, too. I have tons of unread books in my room that I’ve had for years but haven’t even started reading yet. Yet I still keep checking out books from the library… and buying more books.

  2. reminds me to start reading my backlog books, so I could start hoarding again. Nice new find there. I’m looking for “World War Z”

  3. Hoarder! 😀

    It’s always been good to hoard books (of course, better than hoarding other stuffs)

    I admire people who still read real books! Cause what I do now is go to bookstores, find something new and download the ebook — and I’ve got a serious backlog too!

    One thing sucks on an ebook, it doesn’t have that distinct smell!

  4. Nice to know I’ve kindred spirits. 🙂

    Janis: I read ebooks too, although I’ve yet to get the hang of it. Yep. I miss the distinct book smell — especially the old book smell. 🙂
