Instead of spending the evening at home and catching up on my reading I went to the library for a good browse, and here’s what I checked out:
Shalimar the Clown by Salman Rushdie. This is the November pick for my foreign authors book group.
She Got Up Off the Couch by Haven Kimmel. I really enjoyed Zippy so I want to read more of Haven’s adventures.
Still Life by Louise Penny. This is the first of a new mystery series set in Canada.
In Lucia’s Eyes by Arthur Japin. Story about a servant girl in 18th century Europe. Salons, the Enlightment and even Casanova are all a part of this novel.
How Elizabeth Barrett Browning Saved My Life by Mameve Medwed. With a title like, and the jacket blurb stating it’s a novel for those who enjoy flea markets and Antiques Roadshow I couldn’t pass it up.
I want to read all the books but let’s not make any bets on how many I actually read before having to return them. Sigh.
