Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, December 02, 2021

I thought my minor haul yesterday at the company book sale was adequate. But it wasn’t. Since they knocked down the prices to a-buck-a-book today, I picked up a couple more items:

- “Shadows” by Osvaldo Soriano. The jacket design grabbed me, the flap description gave me a Latin American magical realism impression. It holds promise.

- “The Assistants: A Novel” by Robin Lynn Williams. Has a “Sex and the City” meets “The Real World” vibe to it. I anticipate a quick, fun read.

And the CD purchase:

- Radio Tarifa: “Fiebre”. From the sleeve blurb:

Experience the energy and passion of one of Spain’s most mesmerizing bands in concert with this live recording of their irresistible blend of Mediterranean sounds - a modal mix of Flamenco and Arabic elements with an instinctive medieval root.

Yeah, it’s classic marketing copy. But it, and the two-buck pricetag, was compelling enough. I plan to listen to it tomorrow, during my day off.

I guess I’ve got beaucoup book fodder to keep me reading for the next couple of months (maybe). Good for the mind.
