We're on snow day #3 and while Hope entertains Atticus, I thought I might squeeze in a library loot from last week and share some books I recently purchased.
First off, the Library Loot:
- Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs
- Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris (I swear I'm actually going to read it this time)
- Family Roundabout by Richmal Crompton
- The Man in the Queue by Josephine Tey
- In this House of Brede by Rumer Godden
- Ghost Hunters by Deborah Blum
- The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory
- Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl
Most of these books came from the public library. The Godden novel is from the university library and the Persephone is via interlibrary loan.
I also stopped by the local charity bookshop for some reads.
- 84, Charing Cross Road and Q's Legacy by Helene Hanff
- King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard
- Howard's End by E.M. Forster
- The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene
- Mockingbird by Charles J. Shields
- The Terror by Dan Simmons
Whelp, I think I'm pretty much stocked up on books. At least for a little while ;).
