What was the last book you bought?

Recommended Posts

I bought a bunch of books to try to get my offspring reading but they are also books that I want to read.

YA fiction is usually not intellectually satisfying for me but I do love a good dystopia/apocalypse theme. In defense of The 5th Wave, the portion of the book I browsed seemed way better than the movie looked.

 

Also this book light. I always think booklights stink because they aren't bright enough. They had a nice one for cheap that was 13 lumens. And a bigger one that was 24 lumens. But no. I wanted 35 lumens. Now I think it's too bright.

Also OT, but my daughter who loves to read but mostly crappy fan fiction asked me to get her Crime and Punishment. She's 12.

I finally bought American Gods at some point last year and I read the whole thing, but it took me forever because I kept forgetting to bring the book with me to work.  I was glad when I got to the point in the book where they describe Shadow as being black because I kept picturing him being black and I was like, "Wait, am I being unintentionally racist...?" but I just kept picturing him as being the man who plays Luke Cage for some reason.  I guess there's a TV series of it too or something but I probably won't watch it because I can't picture anyone else playing Shadow.  But also, it probably would not make a good TV series.  I should buy a new book soon.
