So what has arrived lately?
Nora Ephron's I Feel Bad About My Neck. Recommended by Nancy (Pomegranate Trail)
Kathereine Neville's The Eight. This was one of Annie's (Buttery Books) choices of books to give. I know I've read other positive reviews, but Annie's mention reminded me.
Cara Black's Murder in the Marais (first in Aimee LeDuc series). Recommended by Teresa, who doesn't have a blog, but should because she reads, crafts, and is involved in so many interesting activities including her neighborhood restoration organization and working with children.
Mary Gostelow's A World of Embroidery and Mary Gostelow's Embroidery Book...because over at Bayou Quilts I've slipped into that embroidery cycle again with a vengeance. The reason I'm not reading so much right now is because I'm spending my time with needle and thread. Way too much time.
I ordered all of the above through the used books sellers at Amazon; most of the cost less than $1.00, some as little as one cent. Plus shipping, of course. Certainly a bargain!
These join about 10 others that are on the table (and floor) by my reading chair, next to the overflowing bookcase.
