“What Was the Last Book You…” Meme

Musing Mondays2

This week’s musing is a book meme: What was the last book you…

What was the last book you borrowed from the library? The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. That was last fall. You can tell I’m not that into him, he’s very out there.
What was the last book you bought? Seven Types of Ambiguity by Elliot Perlman. Acquired at the library weekly step-sale.
What was the last book you cried over? Safe from the Sea by Peter Geye. Thanks to the Independent Literary Award.
What was the last book you disliked and couldn’t finish? Theft by Peter Carey.
What was the last book you read and loved? A Room with a View by E.M. Forster.
What was the last book you got for review? (or: got in the mail?) It’s been way too long that I cannot recall.
What was the last book you gave to someone else? Rules for Old Men Waiting by Peter Pouncey.
What was the last book you stayed up too late reading? In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.

  1. I always love your answers. I definitely loved the Wind Up Bird Chronicles, though I read it almost four years ago and would have to really revisit it to give you a full picture of what I did love so much about it.

  2. Great books to look up. You have a few that I do want to read!!

  3. In Cold Blood was a book that I desperately wanted to tear myself away from because it disturbed me on so many levels and yet I couldn’t bring myself to stop reading it.
