I am entertained by the mix in the stack. The top two in the stack are the partial result of my last trip to my favorite bookstore in the world, The Book Gallery. I am sure that 80-90% of the Lem in my book collection has come from that store.
The bottom two were birthday gifts from my friend, Genny. I got to pick out The Refrigerator Monologues, which was a terrific workaround of my pledge to not buy any books from the big five publishers this year, and I’d started reading her copy of The Wee Free Men at work, back when we used to work together. Now that we don’t, she took the responsibility of making sure I had my own copy.
Which shall I read first?
