The books people buy

Mao II has been sitting around for a while, not getting read, and despite (or perhaps because of) that I ordered The Things They Carried and Oracle Night. I started reading The Things They Carried and like it, but I just bought Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close from what's really a great bookstore on Court St. on my way home, somewhat to prove to Scotter that it had been released already, but primarily because I am looking forward to reading it. I don't buy hardcover books as a general rule, but exceptions are made.

The New Yorker was some sort of fashion tripe this week.
