Hello Friends! I hope you’ve been doing well and had a good weekend. I’ve been just busy with work and when not working, trying to relax. I had the chance to catch up with some friends and family over phone calls last weekend so that was very nice.
In other exciting news my book buys to celebrate my bloggiversary last month finally arrived. Actually I’m still waiting for one but thought I’d go ahead and share what I got.
First up is Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley. Am I like the last person who hasn’t read this book? I didn’t see the movie version either but this is the choice for my book group discussion next week. Not sure if I’ll be able to participate (virtually) but I am looking forward to this book.
I had also heard a book tuber I follow talk about Mexican Poet, Jaime Sabines, and how his poetry is very accessible. I have heard of him but had never read any so I decided to get this collection of love poems, Poesia Amorosa, which I could only find in Spanish. I’m so excited to read this book.
My third treat was the Kolaj Magazine #28. This is a magazine about contemporary collage. I remember hearing about this a while back and then I forgot but am so glad I looked into again. I love art and lately collage is calling me more and more. The subscription rate is not too high so I thinking of subscribing.
Speaking of magazines, remember a while back I had mentioned that I was going to call my local B&N to see if I could do some curbside pickup of magazines? Unfortunately they told me that most of their magazines will not be coming in until later in the year. They have some of the more popular ones but I love to read crafty magazines and independent magazines so they aren’t carrying those for now. Some of those do have quite expensive subscriptions so I’ll have to see which others I’ll try to subscribe to. Anyway, we’ll see. At least I have discovered a new one.
Anyway, that’s the latest around here. What new books have you added to your shelves?
