I notoriously buy a million books and only read the ones I get from the library (they have a due date!).

Here is a list of the books that I’ve bought in 2010:

Amy Levy, Reuben Sachs

Bonnie Jo Campbell, American Salvage*

Jan Morris, Conundrum

Jayne Anne Phillips, Lark and Termite

Jean Echenoz, Big Blondes

Jean Echenoz, Running

John Banville, The Infinities

Jorge Volpi, Season of Ash

Kate Walbert, The Gardens of Kyoto

Katherine Mansfield, Journal

Lucinda Rosenfeld, I’m So Happy for You

Marilynne Robinson, Home

Marlene van Niekerk, Agaat

Mary McCarthy, The Group

* I’ve read the great majority of American Salvage—which is great—but I have yet to read the last three stories.

I’ll let you know when I’ve finished each book on the list, and I’ll add books as I buy them.

Happy reading!
