I finally went to the city library for the first time in forever. It was a spontaneous decision I made while taking my mother to the doctor today. The library was as just as I remember from my middle school days, slightly run-down, a little deserted, and sadly not a wide variety of books to choose from. One would think differently of the capital city of Alabama. Then again...maybe not. The Huntsville library I've come to love while at university is much more grande with a cathedral design on the outside, and wide, open space on the inside. Oh how I miss it.
Despite the lack of books, I was still able to find a decent selection of novels that caught my eye.
I become interested in Max Berry after being introduced to his fun webiste, NationStates. This satirical piece immediately grabbed my attention, and it looks to be an enjoyable read.
I hear about this book all the time, so I finally caved and rented it. I feel like it would have been a crime to not get it, as so many people are telling me to read it. Well, there you go. I got it.
I claim this my classics read for the next few weeks, after making a bet with my boyfriend. He's going to read Three Musketeers while I read this, and whoever finishes first wins. Wish me luck!
