Book Stack: Black and white and re[a]d all over!

This is my entry for the LibraryThing homepage book pile contest.

The Ambassadors by Henry James. I haven't read this yet, but I plan to someday!

Shiokari Pass by Ayako Miura. I read this powerful novel (based on a true story) about christianity in Japan while I was living there.

Looking for Alaska by John Green. I bought this a couple of weeks ago and look forward to reading my first John Green book.

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. I read this a couple of months ago and reviewed it here.

No Logo by Naomi Klein. This is a non-fiction book about how we are constantly bombarded by logos, branding and advertising. I have read bits and pieces of it, but not the whole book.

The Robe of Skulls by Vivian French. This was the first LT Early Reviewer selection that I went out and bought myself. It just came out recently and it looks really fun.

You Remind Me of Me by Dan Chaon. I got this for free at the Frankfurt Book Fair a few years ago and read it earlier this year. I really enjoyed it!

Maus by Art Spiegelman. The German version of this famous graphic novel.

And lastly a book about art that inspired Walt Disney that we bought at the D'Orsay museum in Paris (in French).

I like your color scheme and variety of books! I started making a list of genres to include if i do it, so it's diverse.

What a great pic!

isn't it technically "unread" all over if it's a TBR pile?

Lenore Appelhans said...

Well, I've read at least something of all the books (and 4 I have read entirely so it is not strictly a TBR pile), even if it was just the book jacket :)

Looks great!

Very clever, Lenore ... good luck with the contest!

(Did you see the book pile contest over at Literate Housewife?)

I just went over to look at it, but it seems I'm a day late. Plus, I have read some of the titles so it's not really a tbr pile.

Looking for Alaska is amazing.
I have The Book of Lost Things that I still need to read.

There were a couple others that looked good in your pile...I'm blanking..uh...the robe of skulls one! I've heard that's a fun read.

Love the colors and how they all go together though. That's so cool.
