This Weeks Book Pile!

See how small the pile is!? RESTRAINT! I practised it.

Books I Bought

Title: The Street of Crocodiles and Other Stories
Author: Bruno Schulz

'The Street of Crocodiles' is the short story that Jonathan Safran Foer based 'Tree of Codes' upon, so I had to get it to go with it!

Book Gifts

Title: Tree of Codes
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

'Tree of Codes' is a book I have wanted for so long and now, thanks to my boyfriend, I haz it. I love JSF, and I love unusual books so this is perfect. Using dye cutting, JSF has taken 'The Street of Crocodiles' by Schulz and cut out whole sections to make the remaining words into a new story. It looks like this inside:

That's it for me this week...I'm proud of myself! Link me to your mailboxes!


  1. Wow, I haven't seen a book that looks like that before! I haven't read anything by JSF, but I guess I should?

  2. OMG I saw Tree of Codes in the bookstore last year, and of course I know JSF but I had no idea what the book WAS exactly, or why or how or what. I just stood there basically trying to figure out how to make sense of it; it was such a weird feeling, like I was learning to read all over again. Leave it to him to do such a thing!

  3. As the most common spectator pursuit in The world, it 's no wonder that we have many nfl (soccer) apps available on the AppStore for the purpose of Apple devices for example the iPhone 4S.
