the origins of the Cold War

It is now in the ice snow flow 2:27 PM Thursday afternoon. The book nook (library used books store) was slow today, so I read "Infinite Jest" and wandered the store. I brought home these used books from the book nook to ADD to our library-

"One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" a novel by Alexander Solzhenitsyn

"Harbor" a novel by Lorraine Adams

"Ten Little Indians" Stories by Sherman Alexie

"Island Of Vice: Theodore Roosevelt's Doomed Quest To Clean Up Sin-Loving New York" by Richard Zacks

I got home from the book nook I ate lunch and wrote in my paper diary. I cataloged the used books I brought home today into my LibraryThing site. So the day goes by. Not much else to report. I will close to drift.

I suppose I should mentioned I checked out of the library I had them get me from another library titled, "The Island of Sakhalin" by Anton Chekhov [Translated By Luba and Michael Terpak]. I wanted to have this book in hand as I read more of the book, "To A Distant Island" by James McConkey. I do not when I will get around to reading these two books now that I am reading "Infinite Jest" etc. . .
