Man vs. TBR #1/12
While I don't anticipate any further bending of the rules from here on out, I've already "revisited" my ridiculous, self-imposed Man vs. TBR book-buying reduction pledge from last month and am now shooting for a grand total of no more than twelve book purchases for the entire year. OK, so I'm obviously willing to cheat to succeed--but what was the first book purchased? NYU history professor Karen Ordahl Kupperman's The Jamestown Project in e-book format, a New Year's Day transaction I practically "had" to make to test drive a certain shiny new gadget that found its way into the house earlier in the day. In non-cheating news, I also wanted to remind everybody that the group read of Roberto Bolaño's The Savage Detectives that many of us have been looking forward to for quite some time now is finally due to take place during the last weekend of the month. For more details and/or a look at the list of others who'll be participating, you can check out group read co-host Rise's post here or my post here. Hope you're able to join in on the fun!
Thanks to Jenny Volvoski for allowing us to borrow her cool cover design for The Savage Detectives group read (use of this image as a badge has been approved by the artist). Other rad covers as imagined by Jenny can be found at her art blog From Cover to Cover.
