My book todo list just got longer. Seattle’s Sunday paper printed a list of books coming out this fall. Here’s what’s already on my Amazon wish list:
· Quicksilver, by Neil Stephenson. Due out 9/23/03. The first in a new trilogy. This one has me *really* excited. Think Cryptonomicon meets Newton and Ben Franklin.
· By Sorrow’s River, by Larry McMurtry. Due out 11/04/03. Oh, I can’t wait for this one - the third in Berrybender Narratives. McMurtry does such a great job creating some really wacko, yet believable, characters, and in this installment, we’re chasing the Berybenders through Wyoming and Colorado.
· Pompeii, by Robert Harris. Due out 11/13/03. I really enjoyed his “Fatherland” novel, and I don’t know much about Pompeii, so this should be a good Thanksgiving read.
Of course, Chris’s book is on the list as well – I just haven’t gotten around to stealing a copy from the author yet…
