Every day at work I end up with a huge pile in the back room waiting to come home with me. I usually edit it down to about half, and sign those out. Here is my list of things I took home today, along with first impressions.
Nine Queens - Argentinian heist movie that sounds great, in so far as the reviews go.
Scenes from a Marriage - Somehow I made it through film school without ever watching this. I'm psyched that it has Bergman's original 5-hour television version. I'm very much looking forward to this.
Bach - Brandenburg Concertos - Listening to it right now.... feel kind of like I'm in a TV show set in an upscale British department store... not my favourite. Okay, number four is much nicer than number three. I'm such a classical music snob. Ha.
How the Rich Get Thin: Park Avenue's Top Diet Doctor Reveals the Secrets to Losing Weight and Feeling Great - Not sure why I took this. It sounds pretty lame.
The Sonoma Diet Cookbook - I just like finding new healthy recipes, not following crazy diets. I swear.
The Glass Castle - at Amanda's recommendation. I like the cover so far. (Wow, 1030 customer reviews. Popular.)
Quiet, Please: Dispatches from a Public Librarian - I think this one will make my week. By Scott Douglas, who has been chronicling his librarian-ness for McSweeney's since 2003. Yee haw.
