Here's what I brought home:
Don't Sweat the Small Stuff--and it's all small stuff, by Richard Carlson, first edition, published in 1997, which I got because we all sweat the small stuff, too much of the time. I've been enjoying these short essays; the very act of reading them makes me feel calmer, instantly.
Interpreter of Maladies, a collection of short stories by Jhumpa Lahiri, published in 1999, was my second find. How could I ignore a book that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the PEN/Hemingway Award, and The New Yorker Debut of the Year? The New York Times Book Review said that Lahiri "breathes unpredictable life into the page", and as a fan of short fiction, I'm quite excited about reading these stories.
