Second Time Around

In my search for books, I often scour Thrift Shops, used book stores and yard sales. While searching the Goodwill, I could not believe my eyes.

Mark Arax's In the Name of My Father, Daniel Chacon's And the Shadows Took Him (hardcover & autographed), Joyce Carol Oates, Wonderland, and Isabel Allende's Paula were all there waiting to be given a home for the second time around.

Gladly, I opened my doors and my wallet and purchased all four books for a criminally insane low price. These books are priceless. I have been dying to read Arax's book about his father. And well Chacon, I am a fan of all his work.

Allende and Oates are always treasures that I welcome to place among my collection. I look forward to reading these book and reviewing them.

In my blog absence I have read: Hope by Amanda Berry and Gina Dejesus, `Wild by Cheryl Strayed, Forgiven by Chiqui Rivera, F.X. Toole's Rope Burns, The Book of Strange New Things by Michael Faber, Different Kind of Same by Kelley Clink a memoir and my current read, the amazing Toni Morrison's God Help the Child

Reviews to come soon.

Happy Reading
