Recently, its rare for me to post anything for IMM. After all I don’t have access to a library and I’m on a book buying diet. However, thanks to my birthday last October 30 I received a few books. My brother’s family gave me a gift certificate from a book store and a close friend gave me my most coveted book of the year. Can you see my big wide smile?
Today’s IMM title is brought to you by the fact I have two books that are ‘recent’ releases and a few ‘classics.’ So let’s get on with it!
Do I even have to tell you how much I’ve been itching to get this book?! We joined the Murakami Challenge for my sake. LOL. This isn’t cheap and I rarely get a copy of Murakami’s book fresh out of press, but a dear friend was kind enough to get this for my birthday. I haven’t read it yet. But I promise you I’ll read it before the year is over. I am at awe at its presence on my shelf.
Susan Cooper is a classic in her genre. I’ve been meaning to read this for years, but haven’t really gotten to it. This book is thick. It’s the complete series. I’m excited about this. This is one of the many books I purchased from the Gift Certificate.
I’ve read Pseudonymous Bosch’s book 1 early last year. I never had the chance to read the sequels because reading serial books require time and I was too busy to pursue the whole endeavor. But I’m ready now. Got book 2 and 3 courtesy of the gift certificate. (I can’t seem to stop saying it! Bear with me, free books just make me gush!).
My last purchases from the gift certificate were these two books. A Visit from the Good Squad is a fairly recent release and the blogsphere has been gushing about this book. I’ve been meaning to read it. I finally got myself a copy. The EM Forster is part of my personal goal of reading more books from the 1001 Must Read Books before you Die. I enjoy reading my favorite authors, but I also like challenging my comfort zone and reading from that list will definitely push me to read more.
So that’s my IMM post for the day. I hope you enjoyed it. Now that you know what’s in my mailbox I’m curious what’s in yours. 🙂
