I got a ton this week!
Words Without Borders: The World Through the Eyes of Writers-A Collection of short stories published for the first time in English
Sixteen: Stories About That sweet and Bitter Birthday
Does This Book Make Me look Fat?: Stories about loving-and loathing-your body-See a theme here? I've decided to get a move on with the 100 Shots of Short Challenge!
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer-This one sounds cool. I hope it is not disappointing.
Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George-I realized how few Newberry Award winners I've read, so I picked up several that I never got a chance to read.
The View From Saturday by E.L. Koningsburg-Another Newberry
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor-Another Newberry. I'm extied for this because I discrovered Mildred Taylor in seventh grade but soon forgot about her. I even went through a phase where I wrote short stories in the style she writes.
Steinbeck Novels and Stories 1932-1937-My library does not have a plain old copy of Tortilla Flat, so I had to get this.
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky-Learned about this while on my browsing only visit to Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago!
The Road by Cormac McCarthy-For My Year of Reading Dangerously. It's an Oprah Book Club book. Enough said.
