Library Finds

I had to go to the library this afternoon to pick up a book for my mystery book group meeting in September but I managed to walk away with a few others. I shouldn’t have picked those up as I have so many new books to read but I couldn’t help it. They sounded interesting and why not?

Anyway, I got The Tin Roof Blowdown by James Lee Burke. This is for my new mystery book group that I’ve joined in Austin. You know me, I don’t like to read series in the middle and this is the 16th in the series. Yikes. I think I’m going to have to get over my “must-start-at-the-beginning-of-a-series” mode.

I also checked out B As in Beirut by Iman Humaydan Younes. This book is about the lives of four women who live in Beirut during the Lebanese civil war. I also noticed that this is published by an imprint I’m not familiar with, Interlink Books. I had a quick look at their web site and I already like what I see.

Because I always like a good Victorian setting, I couldn’t walk away without A Tissue of Lies by Tessa Barclay. I also picked up Skim by Mariko Tamaki, which means I may actually finish my Graphic Novels Challenge soon.

Of course I also picked up the free copy of BookPage but I think I’ve already heard of all the books mentioned from you guys. Gotta love that.

Anyway, I’m still behind on my emails and blog reading so I apologize. I had planned to make a dent into that today but I found my energies going into dealing with car insurance stuff. You see, on the weekend a big car decided to park close to my small car and then they couldn’t get out very easily. When they tried, my poor car got some small scratches. It’s a pain to deal with this but at least the girls waited for me to get to my car to give me their insurance info. More book talk tomorrow.
