>I don’t suppose you’d believe me at this point if I told you the books just follow me home, right?
This weekend, my husband came to Korea (more about the 12 books he brought with him in a later post). I went up to Incheon and fetched him from the airport. The following day was book group. So of course I had to stay overnight in Seoul. Of course I had to stay at the hotel that’s right around the corner from What The Book?
The horrible OJ book was at the bookstore — foolish me, I thought I would be safe from the sight of that book over here. My husband actually picked it up, then as a joke, he touched my hand with the hand that had been holding the book. I recoiled, not entirely joking.
I didn’t buy the OJ book, but here’s what I did buy:
Brainiac – Ken Jennings (I have an affectionate older-sister crush on this sweet uber-geek. I read his blog regularly and was so pleased when he kicked Ogi’s ass in “Grand Slam”.)
My Detachment – Tracy Kidder (another memoir)
Korea: A Walk Through The Land Of Miracles – Simon Winchester (I’ve read mixed reports about this book, but I want to see for myself)
Joe – Larry Brown (yay)
The Duchess Who Wouldn’t Sit Down – (blanking on author’s name…looks entertaining…a history of hospitality)
The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane – Laird Koenig (I read this in middle school. Made into a creepy but cool little movie starring Jodie Foster and Martin Sheen back in the late seventies)
