This month I’m going to talk a bit about what’s new on my shelves and my To Be Read list.
What’s new on the shelves recently:
|Who I Am by Pete Townshend |
This one isn’t even for me. The Hubster is a longtime fan of The Who and when this one showed up in multiple newsletters the week it was released, I sent a link to the Rolling Stones review to The Hubster to see if he wanted me to pick up a copy. I knew he would so the asking was pretty much a formality.
|Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel |
This one has been on the TBR list for a while but I haven’t gotten around to readin it yet. I’ve seen so many good reviews of this and the follow up (Bring Up The Bodies) and now a second Man Booker Prize. It’s time and it needed to be purchased.
|Whose Body by Dorothy Sayers |
The Lord Peter Wimsey series Is another oldie but goodie that I’ve heard about for ages and never read. Thanks to BethFishReads and Ana at Things Mean a Lot both encouraging me I went ahead and picked up a copy last time I was at Powells
New on the ipod:
|Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White |
This is actually my current audiobook. The reason I got this one is because of the publication anniversary post on NPR. It mentioned that E.B White narrated the audio himself and had a hard time getting through Charlotte’s death without breaking down. I love this book and Wilbur is the screensaver on my nook. It’s time to re-experience and seriously what a great book to have read to me?
New on my library shelf:
I’m planning ahead and making my library requests now. Jenn at Jenn’s Bookshelves is planning a Cozy Mystery event sometime in early December so I’ve been gathering a selection of books from some of my favorite cozy series in preparation for this.
