I love our local library. There's something so fulfilling about being surrounded by so many brilliant ideas and such hard work in physical form. My little guy sits at the end of each aisle and looks at his picture books (JAMPIRES by Sarah McIntyre and David O'Connell was a big hit this week) while I take too long trying to decide what I want.
This time I was looking for HOT MILK by Deborah Levy, but all the copies were checked out, so I went hunting. And oh, did I find some wonderful novels. My two picks, SURFACING by Margaret Atwood and THE HEART IS A MUSCLE THE SIZE OF A FIST by Sunil Yapa, are engrossing and immersive, but very different. I'm enjoying alternating between them.
