Lookey Lookey I Got A Bookey

Oh heavens!

If it isn't obvious enough, I love books. Not only do I love reading them, I apparently love to just collect them.

Over the last month or two I have been stock piling. Mostly because it was my birthday and I got Barnes and Noble gift cards to blow on delicious novels.

(Yes, delicious.)

Here are some of the newest ones:

I have always wanted to read Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger. A friend of mine read it when we were in probably the fifth grade, and it has always been one of her absolute favorite books.

This little play was so absolutely adorable, I had to buy it. The cover made me do it... look at that jolly little guy! Plus, it boasts of being funny, and I loves me some funny.

I've already read Night but that doesn't mean I won't want to read it again. What a powerful story, a truly great read.

This old copy of Jane Eyre was only $1.50. I asked myself, does this mean I have to buy it? And the answer was yes. duh.

I'm feelin' like a lot of Science Fiction lately. Specifically dystopian. I believe I've mentioned that before on this blog. And, I think I forgot how much I really love SciFi, being in school made me read so many things that weren't SciFi, and now that I am able to delve into whatever I so please, I see myself leaning more and more towards those kinds of novels. Plus, I've always wanted to read something by Ayn Rand... Atlas Shrugged is for sure on the list to buy, but for now I found Anthem and that made me happy.

I can't even tell you how long I've wanted to own/read this book. Naked Lunch has been on my TBR list since the day I was born I'm pretty sure. And now, eegads!, I own it!

Tender is the Night, oh how I hope you will live up to my love for The Great Gatsby.

This is on my list of TBR, and I came across it at my BFF's house in Washington this last weekend. Upon giving her the "let me borrow it eye" she handed it over for an undetermined amount of time (seeing as the pile of books I have that need to be read is staggeringly tall).

I was gifted Hammerhead (signed!) by my BFF (see above). She knows this Jason Andrew Bond fellow and he was nice enough to autograph it for me and ask my opinion. It is SciFi. I shall keep everyone up to date with it.

Ok, now I have already finished this book, it shall be my next post, but I figured I should put it in here as a book that I recently acquired. I bought it for @1book140 on Twitter - we were doing a spooky Halloween read for October.

And this is the book I am currently devouring. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I am loving it. It's funny and stupid wacky - in a great way.

I also bought Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes, but mi madre wanted to borrow it, so I allowed her to do so...

Anyway folks, those are the 12 books that I have bought recently. I'm excited to read all of them - as well as all of the others that are accumulating in my little library.

On to reading!
