Remember my post about my Tackle the To-Be-Read Pile Project? In the aforementioned post, I boldly stated that I wouldn't buy any books until I finished the ones in my TBR pile.
Well, less than a month later, I've cracked, but this is my final relapse. I promise. Anyway, here are my latest acquisitions in no particular order:
- Dubliners by James Joyce - A collection of short stories by the man who never fails to make my head hurt. I'm reading one to two stories everyday, and, so far, this book is the most readable thing by Joyce I've ever encountered.
- The Jungle by Upton Sinclair - I have no idea what this one is about, aside from the fact that there's meat. Lots of meat.
- The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath - Recently finished this one. You can expect a review soon.
- Beloved by Toni Morrison - I still haven't decided if I'm going to read Beloved or Sula first. I don't want to dive right into Morrison's most popular work without a bit of preparation.
- Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy - I read ten chapters from this book everyday, and I hope to finish it before the end of the year. This is the only book I have an excuse for. I've been looking for a copy for over a year, and, when I finally found one at my favorite secondhand bookstore, I simply couldn't let it go.
What about you? What are your latest acquisitions?
