Pre-Bastille Day Used Book Porn

A Haitian grammar and an intriguing 1978 National Book Award winner

Made a trip to McKay’s for the first time in a few weeks earlier today (even though once I got there, I forgot the original reason for going, which was to find some books for one of my aunts – oops!).  Didn’t buy much, in part because I wasn’t for sure how much store credit I was going to receive for the 21 books I took in to be traded, not to mention buying a $27 new book, but there are some promising books here, including Walter Wangerin Jr.’s The Book of the Dun Cow.

The Walker book is the one new book I purchased today.  Reading the Høeg at some point because I’ve heard positive things about him.

Filling in the gaps in my reading of Onetti and Monterroso.

I’ll read this Croatian poetry/essay book once I have learned enough Serbian to be reading fluent.  It might sound strange, but the two languages are about as different as North American and UK English, from what I can tell.  And of course, more Spanish poetry for me to explore.
