Browsing at the library creates havoc in my to be read pile. Especially since my library is part of a system, and the catalogue of the whole system is on the internet. When I'm bored in computer class, I just sit there picking out books.
I do that too! And, my library card lets me check out books from 30 area libraries and there are 2 in a five mile radius of my house! Plus, I always have meetings at the libraries because they're public buildings, so if I'm early, I'll kill time by browsing.

"Behold, in theaters now, the thing that reads alot" - Lorelai Gilmore
Collection of short stories published by an independent editor
1. The Paris Review Interviews vol. 1 2. Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut 3. White Teeth by Zadie Smith 4. Jane Eyre 5. The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
I really enjoyed White Teeth. I read it when it first came out and was really excited when I heard she was touring here. But, she was such a huffy (literally sighing into the microphone the whole time!) and unfriendly speaker - it was an interview format and she was not very nice to the interviewer. Anyway, the book was great so I hope that you enjoy it too. I woudn't really bother with her follow up The Autograph Man though - was quite boring and no where near as good!
