Today’s mail brought me a few goodies that are keeping me away from my books tonight. I got the March/April edition of Bookmarks Magazine. After a quick look through I’ve already added The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak, The Crimson Portrait by Jody Shields and Arlington Park by Rachel Cusk to my list.
I also received the latest New York Review of Books and I recommend it to any Haruki Murakami fans for this article alone. Of course the detail I zoom into is that apparently Murakami so captivates a global readership that in Taipei you can find a café named after one of his novels and a bar in Moscow offers a cannabis-laced drink in his honor.
Finally my latest find is CROQ Zine. For any of you crafters out there this is one not to miss. Issue 8 has articles on charity crafting, a pattern for a cute wristlet and some candy recipes – yum.
So tell me, are you reading anything else besides a good book?
I hope I have another good mail day tomorrow because I’m waiting on a box of books!
