From the library:
I borrowed Susan Cain’s “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.” Normally I don’t read much nonfiction, but a friend recommended this after reading it in an airport on a trip to Tajikistan. She claims that reading the book helped her to understand me better. It looks quite interesting, and I should have a review up within the next two weeks.
From the bookstore:
I saw “Snow White, Blood Red,” a collection edited by Terri Windling and Ellen Datlow, on a clearance rack at Barnes & Noble and just couldn’t pass it up. It contains dark faerie tales from many of my favorite authors–Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, and Patricia McKillip, among others. They shall make fantastic bedtime stories.
“My Education,” by Susan Choi, is the story of a graduate student who makes poor life decisions and sleeps with her professor. It seems like it has potential.
“The Crown” and “The Chalice,” by Nancy Bilyeau, are historical fiction from the Tudor era. There is a love triangle. It involves a nun. Enough said.
