A Call for Suggestions

Thanks to Groupon and Living Social, I now have $20 gift cards to Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I have a serious backlog of to-be-read books on the shelf, and many of the books on my wishlist are the sort I would probably read once and then pass along, rather than keep for myself. I own a large number of journals and sketchbooks, most of which are empty. The Amazon one will probably be easy, since they sell pretty much everything, but I’m not so sure about the Barne.

So here’s the question: what should I get?

  1. I’ve got Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi here from the library. It’s a YA postapocalyptic thriller about scavengers in a hellish futuristic New Orleans that’s been getting a lot of buzz. I haven’t started on it yet because I’m working on another book, but I picked it up at lunch, read the first few pages, and had a hard time putting it down. There’s also an audiobook that might also be fun. If your library’s anything like mine they’ve slashed their audiobook budget to the bone, so you could do worse than buy the audiobook.
