The Payless Warehouse Sale.... again.

Didn't think I'd go this time as I'm not really in the best state of finances right now... but I must've been trapped in their tractor beam and they managed to rope me in anyhow.

I managed to escape by the skin of my teeth with these:

1. Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes
I've been eying this for ages at Borders.

2. Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson
Recommended by a friend a couple years back. Feel slightly guilty it took me this long to actually get the book. How long more will it take for me to read it?

3. Louisiana Power & Light by John Dufresne
Passed the first-page test. Looks like it could be an enjoyable read.

4. Maybe the Moon by Armistead Maupin
From the writer of the Tales from the City series.

5. The Seven-Per-Cent Solution by Nicholas Meyer
OMGWTFBBQ! I've been looking for this for yoinks! (Big Sherlock Holmes fan here!)

6. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
I hope I haven't already bought this.

7. We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates
Who doesn't like Joyce Carol Oates?

okay, put your hands down. Geez. She's not that bad.

My wallet is now unburdened by RM24.50. Um. Yay?

  2. I've only read a few of her short stories... but they seem okay. I'm wondering how her novels stack up.
