Bookish

Today I bought several new books at B&N:

- The House of Seven Gables (Nathaniel Hawthorne)
- The Mysterious Affair at Styles (Agatha Christie)
- Things Fall Apart (Chinua Achebe)
- Laughter in the Dark (Vladimir Nabokov)
- The Metamorphoses (Ovid)

The reason I chose them is because they are listed on "Blue's Required Reading" list at the website for Special Topics in Calamity Physics (by Marisha Pessl) - www.calamityphysics.com. Blue van Meer is one of my favorite characters ever, Special Topics in Calamity Physics is one of my favorite books ever, and these are books I absolutely should have read.

Read any of them? Like/dislike?

(Also on the list was Flannery O'Connor's short story "Good Country People," which I read at the store. Great story. Definitely worth a read.)
