Books for New Mexico


Although I dig the local indies, on weekends I would browse the big-box bookstore in the suburbs because parking is so much easier. I don’t have to worry about keeping time and feeding meter. Anyway, with kids back in school and summer coming to an end, browsing was a pleasant experience.

I continued with new authors and ones whose works I wish to explore in depth.

The famous King’s English Bookstore in Salt Lake City lists Anne Perry’s The William Monk Mysteries: The First Three Novels in their 25 Best Mysteries section of their gorgeous coffee table book. I am glad to own this one finally. Few authors have made Victorian London as engaging and lively as Anne Perry has and her rich descriptions and charismatic characters have long captivated fans around the world. André Aciman is a personal favorite after Call Me By Your Name. The story of how an immigrant Indian man becomes a celebrated French chef in The Hundred-Foot Journey intrigues me. The book is like a fable with real human struggle. I usually don’t like movie tie-in cover but I give it to Helen Mirren. The Bookseller is like a booklover’s dream come true: a mystery set in a Parisian bookstore. Now the New Mexico trip reading list is complete!

  1. My favorite part of packing is picking out the books I’m going to read on my trip. 🙂
