A Drop of BookPeeping from Thursday

Well, I'm late in reporting all the snow and ice. All? Hardly, a few inches, but it was the first significant snow of the season. No cool pictures. No cool video. I failed you. Sorry.

A small bit of bookpeeping from yesterday's commute, this trio on the R train between Pacific Street and 95th.

The first one jumped out at me:

Look at Me by Jennifer Egan. Why did it jump out at me? Because Jennifer Egan is one of the contributors to the book I am currently reading, The Show I'll Never Forget: 50 Writers Relive Their Most Memorable Concertgoing Experience. Egan wrote about seeing Patti Smith in San Francisco in the 1970's.

Sign of the Cross by Chris Kuzneski. I love the blurb: "Like The DaVinci Code on steroids". Nice. But not as nice as this:

No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole. Read an excerpt here. It will be worth it, really.

Kaderin the Coldhearted is not so cold of heart after all.

This is my favorite line from this extraordinary work of literature: "Kaderin needed to get this killing over with. In just three days, she was to compete in the Talisman’s Hie, which was basically a deadly, immortal version of The Amazing Race."

Sounds fascinating!
