Halleluja and pass the butter! Two new books from the bookstore!
I normally buy books from library book sales as I support my local library wholeheartedly, but I had to buy these new books!
The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, for the Lost in Translation Challenge 2009, and Orange County: A Personal History by Gustavo Arellano, award winning author of the Los Angeles Press Club.
I wanted to read Barbery's book for its unique characters, and Arellano's memoir for its personal and "cultural history" of Orange County, California.
Looking forward to being challenged and informed!
