From Goodreads.com: "Time Magazine included the book in its list of the 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005. The story of John Self and his insatiable appetite for money, alcohol, fast food, drugs, porn and more, Money is ceaselessly inventive and thrillingly savage; a tale of life lived without restraint, of money and the disasters it can precipitate."

Snapped up at Borders during its final days, because it was something like 80% off and I knew it was on the 1001 list!

But, now I'm moving out of state and I don't want it to have to be packed up in a box for months on end. So, it will be heading out for an international bookring, hopefully returning to me when I'm more likely to read it.

This is a "take your time" bookring, so no need to rush through it in a month if you don't prefer. As long as you check in and keep us posted after a few months or so, there's no problem.

Arrived in today's mail. Thank you flewry. I do have a couple to read ahead of this one so the 'no rush' is appreciated.

Another strange one from Amis. My favourite has been "Other People".
Waiting on an address for salvami.

Journal Entry 10 by flewry at Minneapolis, Minnesota USA on Sunday, October 27, 2013
Arrived home safe and sound! Many thanks to everyone who made this little ray a success, and to biisbsw for the lovely card. :)

Sadly, I never did get around to reading this, but my eyesight has deteriorated a bit and this font is a no-go. :(

So now it is time for this book that formerly traveled the world to make its way out there in the wild!
