days of yore

I'm out of books. And I want something to read. And safeway doesn't have their bargain book bin out yet and that's usually where I get my books. I've gotten some really good ones from there.

Those were the good old days... when I had books to read.

Any suggestions?

What genre do you like? I've got a whackload of books you're welcome to borrow!

Daryl said...

The Man Who Was Thursday by GK Chesterton, one of the best books I've ever read.

Krista, I read almost anything. Could you bring me a few of your favourites on sunday? I'm sure our tastes are pretty similar...

Michele said...

last time i saw krista reading the book was called the rose of passion by charice d'amouree... don't know if you want to read that.

corrie said...

No way! Krista, are you going to defend yourself? And if you can't... nevermind about the books... I'll make due : )

Ooh, Corrie, I've got a couple I've been meaning to reread. I know we don't have exactly the same tastes in books but in the state your tastes will be less refined. ;-)

I'll set a couple out for you tonight.

What?!? Are you done with the 'very distant future where angels and humans rule their planet in harmony' so soon??

corrie said...

Thanks for letting everyone know I read stupid books like that, Pam. First the whole Dan Brown thing and now this...

In my defense... I got the books for free and I was saving them for cottage summer reading. But I've been so desperate lately...

Now Pam's ruined it for everyone. I'm going to have to read Daryl's book suggestion just to redeem myself. Even if it is subtitled "a nightmare."

Krista said...

Ummmmm....yes. I'm not so much with even knowing what that book is about. the last book I read that had 'passion' in the title was 'Practicing Passion' by Kenda Creasy Dean - a youth ministry book. And the last book I read with the word 'rose' in it was 'The Name of the Rose' by Umberto Eco - a murder mystery at a monestary. LOL I will bring you a little selection on Sunday and you can choose some or take them all!

I'll even bring you a 'dumb' book that'll have you laughing so hard a little pee might come out!

Pascal's Wager, by Nancy Rue. There's a love story, but it's also quite a think-y book.

Accidental Poet said...

Also for some just achingly well done writing - Out of Africa, by Isak Dinesen, or a collection of short stories called In The Misleading Absence of Light, by Joanne Gerber

corrie said...

Awesome. Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone. I'll definitely have enough to keep me occupied for a while...

At least until the book bin's back at Safeway : )

Michele said...

i confess. i was just trying to spread rumours about krista.
