Reading List

Still enjoying Jose Saramago‘s “The Cave“, today I made a rare stop and a bookstore and bought a couple of paperbacks – both on the recommendations of Goodreads people. One is China Mieville‘s “The City and The City“, and the other is “The Scarecrow” by Ronald Morrieson (a New Zealand classic, apparently).

I was also looking for “Bartleby & Co” by Enrique Vila-Matas, and “Blindness” by Saramago – the store had other books by these authors, but not those. I was impressed, because this was a tiny bookstore – Scorpio Books – temporarily housed in a shipping container in the Re:Start Mall downtown, yet it had a better selection (for my personal tastes) than the ginormous Barnes & Noble back home in San Jose
