Filed under: Uncategorized — Michelle @ 1:58 pm

Books Read:

  • The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon.

That's it.  But I do feel like that was an accomplishment and I know April will be a better month.  My full list is here.

Books Acquired:

  • North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  • Look Me in the Eyes by John Elder Robison
  • Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte
  • Ex Libris by Anne Fadiman
  • All I Want is Everything: A Gossip Girl Novel by Cecily von Ziegesar

(In an explanation of the Gossip Girl book, I'm curious to see what the books are like since I started watching the show.)

You can see my full list here.

    How did you end up liking Kavalier and Clay? Also – I loooove Ex Libris! I'm also thrilled to see Look Me in the Eye in your stack – I really enjoyed that book, I hope you like it too. I'll be interested in hearing what you think of the GG books. I read many of them in high school, and then got sick of them. I love the show though. 🙂

    I ended up loving Kavalier and Clay. Once I was in the mood for it. I read most of it last weekend and I really got into it.I started Ex Libris last year on your recommendation but I had to return it to the library before I finished it. So I'm looking forward to it.I love the show but I'm afraid I won't like the books. Plus, I'm not the target age and I know that I read a lot of young adult books, but for some reason this seems different.
