Just got back from the book store and realized I had bought a book, luckily it was used, that I had just purchased recently. Have to admit, it's the first time I've flaked on something like this. I've forgotten birthdays, how many outs there were in an inning once while playing baseball; I've forgotten Mother's Day and Father's Day; I've forgotten how old I am. But never have I mistakenly purchased a book I already owned. To think, I could have bought another book or two instead of the same book for the second time!
Anyway, I ended up getting Michael Byers Long for this World, Cynthia Ozick The Puttermesser Papers, Heidi Julavits The Effect of Living Backwards and James Agee A Death in the Family
Don't know which I'm going to start first, but probably between Julavits and Agee.
