Glorious: Nory Mendoza's favorite author Larry McMurtry has a new book, "Folly and Glory: A Novel," which will be out May 4, 2004. Here's the Borders' description: Under arrest in Mexican Sante Fe, the Berrybenders are forced to make the terrible "Dead Man's Walk" across the desert to Vera Cruz, where Jim Snow has to choose between Tasmin and the freedom of the American plains . . . and Tasmin must finally decide where her future lies.

Looks Interesting: New items that look promising include:

Eats, Shoots and Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, editor, Lynne Truss

The Cooler -- It's already out on DVD!

Kill Bill, Vol. 1 -- While you don't have to see the first to "get" the second (out in theaters now), here's a great opportunity to watch Quentin Tarantino's latest -- and could arguably be his best.

Master & Commander -- Whatever you feel about Russell Crowe (and for most it's simply irritation), this is a beautifully shot, entertaining and moving story.

We'd suggest you avoid "Haunted Mansion," "Cheaper by the Dozen," and "Matrix Revolutions."
