In My Mind, I'm Still Playing Pool

Out yesterday, playing pool with my father, who is visiting. Today? Ranting on the Booklist Book Club. And, of course, blogging. There’s my favorite book award, for instance, which announced its nominees in the category of Debut Author yesterday morning (“Quills Debut Author Nominees Picked,” Publishers Weekly):

A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, by Ishmael Beah (Farrar/Sarah Crichton)

No One Belongs Here More Than You: Stories, by Miranda July (Scribner)

This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of Human Obsession, by Daniel J. Levitin (Dutton)
