Off the Street
One surprising thing about my neighborhood in Brooklyn is the number of books people put out on their stoops. Since moving in August, I’ve picked up quite a few books from the sidewalk, most of which I’ve really enjoyed. Here are some of the books I’ve scored just while walking from the subway to my apartment:
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
Brooklyn: A Novel by Colm Toibin
Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
Best European Fiction 2010 edited by Aleksander Hemon
Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut
Would you pick books up off the street, or do you think I’m a weirdo?
