March 10, 2017 - Here are some customer requests we now have in stock.
"American Gods" - Neil Gaiman. Really hoping nobody figures this one out until I get to read it.
"1984" - George Orwell. Number #1 on Amazon somehow. Gee, I wonder what political event may have caused that. Also have "Animal Farm."
"Watership Down" - Richard Adams - Classic adventure novel in paperback. Nice vintage version.
"Fear and Loathing On the Campaign Trail '72" - Hunter S. Thompson. By far HST's best non-fiction book, and while one of my favorite author's I'm not so blind to also say his output is incredibly over-rated and primed by his outsized personality.
"The Devil in the White City" - Eric Larson
"CJ Box - Full Joe Picket Series" - Wyoming writer is likely our best seller and we just received about 20 paperbacks and hardcovers by him. Used CJ Box include, Shots Fired, Blood Trail, Breaking Point, Cold Wind, Force of Nature and Stone Cold.
"Leaves of Grass" - Walt Whitman. Nice collectible illustrated copy from the Modern Library. This book is my favorite book of poems.
"The Silver Linings Playbooks" - Matthew Quick
"The Circle" - Dave Eggers- We never have this so hurry!
"White Teeth" - Zadie Smith - This won't last either.
"The Stranger" - Camus - Still his most popular.
"The Communist Manifesto" - Karl Marx. Nice copy for assignments or to submerge yourself in perhaps the most misunderstood and misused book of philosophy ever written. Most miss that Marx did not recommend that countries use Marxist ideas unless they'd already moved through advanced stages of economic development. That said, ideas are one thing and implementation is another and let's hope nation states are past putting these ideas into practice.
"All the Light We Cannot See" - Anthony Doerr- Won't last long.
"House of Leaves" - Mark Z. Danielewski - Signed copy. Collectible version of classic book. It's a coherent "Infinite Jest" - $50. Excluded from trade credit.
