There’s Some Good Ones Here

cartNotably, the list of suggested reading from June was mostly new to me too. I look at the list and I think there are four books I have read, about 17 that I believe I have either on my bookshelves or on my iPad, and the rest are slightly beyond the pale. Part of the reason for this is I have included several titles of new books that stood out from publisher’s lists or reviews I read in the Times; for instance, Edward St. Aubyn’s newest work, Lost For Words, sounds fascinating and, since I have read just about everything the author has written, I expect to read this one fairly soon, but right now the budget doesn’t allow it. I will, however, trap a couple of these titles for the July reading list.
