  1. now i've got some ideas for my library list (my version of kindle!?!?).
    a couple i've loved recently and before that:
    Never Let Me Go by Ishiguro (incredible and forget about the dumb movie they're making of it)
    Let the Great World Spin--Colum McCann (amazing slice of characters, NYC circa 70s and beyond. Fiction.)
    Any damn thing that Ian Mcewan writes...

  2. @Dancing Toward a Dream i absolutely love ishiguro and noctures happened to be one that slipped through my net when i read through all his books a few years ago. thanks so much for the other recommendations!! i will definitely add those to my list =)

  3. ok i am about 3/4 of the way done with "let the great world spin" and i have to say that it is one of the most stunning books that i have ever read. highly suggest.

  4. Roberto Bolano. Sam Lipsyte's new book, The Ask, if you liked Subject Steve...
