Window Shopping Wednesdays

I am not much of a shopper, much to my mother’s chagrin. The woman can spend days at the mall, while I start to feel itchy after just a few hours. It’s not that I’m not materialistic, I totally am, it’s just that the thought of adding more stuff to my life makes it hard to breathe. But I like the idea of things. So I’m an avid window shopper. I browse catalogs I’ll never buy from and hold my breathe when I pass the window at J.Crew. So while I’m stuck at school all day Wednesdays, I thought we could have some fun via blog. Let’s window shop!

Let’s go literary this week –

1. The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie by Wendy McLure.

This memoir is about the author’s experiences trying to live like Laura.  Since the Little House on the Prairie series was my favorite as a kid I’d love to see what she found.

2.  Death Du Jour by Kathy Reichs.

I just read the first Temperance Brennan novel (Deja Dead) and I can’t wait to tear through the rest of the series!  Think murder mystery novel but with actual, factual forensics.

3.  Sellevision: A Novel by Augusten Burroughs.

I know nothing about this book except for the fact that it is written by one of my favorite authors.  Burroughs wrote his first novel while overcoming his drinking problem; and the story describing that time (found in Magical Thinking) makes me cry every time I’ve ever read it.

4.  Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling.

I will admit that I hadn’t even heard of Mindy Kaling before I picked up this month’s issue of Self.  I don’t watch “The Office,” so sue me.  But her short interview was so funny and sweet that I immediately decided that I have to have her book.

5.  Uncompromised by Nada Prouty.

The memoir of a CIA agent wrongfully accused of betraying her country.  Apparently I’m all about memoirs.

What great books have you read recently?
