I’m a bit of an impulse shopper when it comes to books. But then there’s this funny little point in time – usually somewhere in early October – where I start to pull back a bit on any purchases. I start stockpiling the mental list of books I’d like to give and receive during the holidays, and then I wait for book fair season to start.
Well, now it’s here, and I’d love to extend the invitation on to you as well. Details for this year’s fair can be found here – you can preorder and pick up later this week in the store, or just stop by sometime this weekend on impulse. I’m completely with you on that.
Here are some books I’ve been (not so) patiently waiting to pick up:
B. J. Novak’s Book with No Pictures
Oliver Jeffer’s latest book, Once Upon an Alphabet
The Fat Radish Kitchen Diaries (My mother- and sister-in-law and I dined there in New York two years ago this month. I’m always looking to expand my vegetarian cookbook collection.)
And another cookbook… Plenty More
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
and especially, Yes Please I’m ready to laugh out loud.
This is but a small sampling, but not a bad start. I’d love to hear what you are reading, and loving, these days. If you can, stop by the bookstore this weekend – I’ll be there Saturday morning when it opens, with scones!
