Erik: Wait, you’re taking more than one book?
From top to bottom:
- The Mezzanine by Nicholson Baker
- That’s Not A Feeling by Dan Josefson
- Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
- Four New Messages by Joshua Cohen
- Another Bullshit Night in Suck City by Nick Flynn
Some vacationers are go-getters, and some are read-and-relaxers. We’re the latter, obvi.
