Recent Book Finds

Early for an appointment last week we roamed around the Goodwill Thrift shop and I found 4 books.

I was especially tickled to find The Lighthouse Stevensons! Rennie Airth is new to me and Annie Proulx I have never read, but now have 3 of her books! Watched the movie Shipping News and enjoyed it and the odd characters so I'm sure I'll love her books. I also like the settings for her books. Never heard of Barbara Cleverly before but the story sounds interesting and it's part of a series.

The Lighthouse Stevensons
The Bee's Kiss
Accordion Crimes
The Blood Dimmed Tide

I'm still waiting for Marget Pow to arrive from Amazon and waiting on a member from Paperbackswap to send out The Bird Artist by Howard James.

On the ebook front new on my iPad are...
Against a Dark Sky by Katherine Pathak
Dead Before Morning by Geraldine Evans
A Bicycle Built for Murder by Kate Kingsbury

and from Netgalley...
The Sound of Glass by Karen White
Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge

and one from Astor-Blue Publishers - Cold Heart by Chandler McGrew

We're off to Tennessee today for a week. Looking forward to lots of reading time! I'd like to get The Sound of Glass and Dead Men's Bones (James Oswald) read this week. I've got three audio books checked out for the time spent in the car, Elizabeth Stroud's Olive Kitteridge and The Burgess Boys and Agatha Christie's The Man in the Brown Suit. Wonder which one or two I'll read?

  1. I'd be tickled to find The Lighthouse Stevensons too, Peggy. Very envious of that find. :-)

  2. You found a bunch of good books! Have a great time in Tennessee! You must be counting down the days until you leave for Scotland!

  3. Those books will keep you busy for a while! Have a great trip.

    PS I loved the audio version of Olive Kitteridge.

  4. Peggy have a great trip! I'm rather fond of Annie Proulx but I've not read that title.

  5. I think I read 2 or 3 of the first books in the Cleverly series, and liked them very much. Why didn't I continue? I just bought The Blood Dimmed Tide. I am a big fan of Anthony Quinn. This one isn't part of his mystery series which is set in Northern Ireland, but sounded most intriguing to me.
