    Based on Sadie Hartmann's review on Cemetery Dance Online, decided to pick-up The Loop by Jeremy Robert Johnson. Received it in the mail yesterday. Pretty cool dustjacket, especially for a trade hardcover. The colors really make it pop. Am excited to give it a go and will probably begin it after finishing Tim Lebbon's "The Silence", which I am currently reading.

    I keep hoping for a sale or for one to show up on eBay, but it's been a couple (?) years now since it was offered by Folio and came up on my radar, and neither have come to pass (that I'm aware of). Probably need to give up on that dream and just buy the darn thing.

    Folio’s edition of Charles Portis’ TRUE GRIT is the one I keep going back to...have come close to pulling the trigger on it at least a dozen times, and for some reason continue to hold off. Reportedly THE modern Great American Novel, I’ve never read it, though have seen the movie. But the book with its unreliable narrator is supposed to be far richer, nuanced, and more complex than the film, obviously, and deals with themes of coming-of-age, revenge, growing old and obsolescence, etc.…really need to get my hands on this one.

    If anyone’s interested in seeing pics of this attractive volume:

    Personally, I usually wait for their sales. They occasionally give out a free book with purchases. Even if I don't necessarily save any money, free surprise novels are always a plus!

    At some point I will have to read that one.
