Here's what I "bought" with my B and N gift card today:
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See: everyone's been raving so I had to get it!
Plainsong by Kent Haruf: it was making a ripple among book people a few years ago.
A Painted Veil by Somerset Maugham: it just looked good! I guess it's a recent movie too.
Here's what I put on hold at the library today:
Austenland by Shannon Hale: a new take on the Mr. Darcy infatuation!
Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson: the third in the Maximum Ride triology, the 2nd of which I just finished this weekend. Fun stuff.
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini: which I know I'll love because of Kite Runner and because so many of you are saying it's amazing.
I can't wait! I'm doing nothing but reading all summer long! :)
