Because reading is hot.

Nick.Flynn

Hello Hotties,

So, you all know about the potluck on Satruday at the home of Steve and Moi, yes? If not, email books4hotties@gmail.com for the deets.  I think I successfully recruited a new MALE hottie!  My dear friend Matt! Hi Matt! Now, I have known Matt for years and years. In fact, I’ve known Matt longer than I’ve known Steve.  Whoa! Anyway, Matt wants to join our literary pursuit as the 3rd male hottie and as long as he brings food to the potlucks, he’s in. He may not be able to make this upcoming potluck but, he’s definitely in for later. Yay!

I got my Nick Flynn book from Amazon today. OK. So, does everyone feel like a kid at Christmas when they get a box from Amazon, or is it just me? I mean, I know it’s coming. I ordered it for pete’s sake. But, there is something so great about getting stuff in the mail that is not a bill! It’s something happy, like a book! Steve, who is the awesomest, always leaves the box for me to open if he gets it first because he knows.  However, today, he called me and told me it was there and like the two nerds we are he opened it while I was on the phone and read off the titles of the books. It was a little pornographic.

Lately, I never seem to order just one book, either. I have to get 4 or 5. So add the glee at getting an Amazon box + 4 or 5 books each time (book club recommendations)=potential problem. But, not one I am ready to deal with yet. We’re wallet poor, but book rich. Uh huh.

Anyway, I ordered:

David Gilmour’s, The Film Club

Michael Chabon’s, Maps and Legends

Flynn’s book

Nick Hornby’s, Housekeeping Vs. The Dirt

And Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire DVD (I didn’t have this one and it was only $6)

This is a very boy-centered list, which is slightly unusual for me. I’m sure I will make up for it soon. I’ve got a lot of ladies on my reading list too, especially–

The Lacuna by Barbra Kingsolver (which I hope we can read in BC4H)!

The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga

Anyway, as The Kid says, “let’s not get carried away, Mom.”

  1. I hope you lurrrrrrve the Hornby! Shakespeare Wrote for Money (of course I would start with the last installment) was laugh out loud funny, no joke.

  2. The Elegance of the Hedgehog is SUCH A GOOD book. I discovered it at the Atlanta airport. You will love it! I in fact would read it again just so you can recommend it for book club.

  3. i love “the kid’s” quote!! little corbin you rock on that one…and yes i do know how it is when books come in the mail…i’m right there with you…i’m so jealous right now….

  4. you can borrow them Kara! Also, The Kid rules most of the time, unless he is telling me I am mean and that I “don’t like fun.”
