Kelly's Book 2.15: The Imperfectionists
Let's make another run at that whole "preview post" concept again, shall we?
My local library can be dangerous because there is a terrific and ever-changing selection of books for sale in the front lobby. We have an active library community, which means that there are always plenty of fresh used books to buy (50 cents for paperback and $1 for hardbound). So, you know... just a waaay-too-easy opportunity to build that TBR pile right back up again. Heh.
All this to say, I picked this book up at the library when we first moved here --- back before I learned that I really need to walk right on by the sale books at the library -- so it's been on my shelf for a couple of years.
Aaaand... I picked it up 100% entirely because I was attracted to the font. Yup. Judging a book by its cover. That's me. Totally. But then I read the synopsis and it seemed interesting, so I put my dollar bill in the box at the end of the shelf (yes, honor system -- how great, right?)
I don't really know anything about this author or book -- it's about a newspaper in Rome and spans several decades and, it seems, quite a few characters. Other than that... pretty font on the front. Uh-huh. Wish me luck!
What's your second book this year?
