Books, books, books!

A few new book acquisitions from me today. The first lot are birthday presents from yesterday:

Throne of Jade and Black Powder War by Naomi Novik are from daughter number one.
Twenties Girl and The Little Stranger are from a nakeisha who always picks exactly the right books.
Great Expectations is from daughter number two. I read it when I was a teenager but don't own a copy and wanted my own.

Next up, several others recently brought by the postman:

Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs is book 5 in her Mercy Thompson series. I saw a review of it on the Bookcrossing LJ, left a comment and the owner said I could have it if I wanted! How nice! I said, 'YES PLEASE' of course...

The Snow Spider Trilogy was recommended to me by byslantedlight, hoping to get to that for the fantasy challenge I'm doing.

The Enchantment Emporium is from the lovely deslily
who read it and passed it on to me. It cost her an arm and a leg and one or two other limbs to post, so thank you, Pat, I really do appreciate the gesture.

And lastly, just to make it a round number of three photos, here's my latest library pile.

New World by Chris Priestley - 1500s YA historical.
Village School by Miss Read - the very first of her books.
A Particular Friendship by Dirk Bogarde - letters to a friend from the famous actor.
Remnant Population by Elizabeth Moon - sci fi, had this a while now so must get to it.
A Guide to the Birds of East Africa by Nicholas Drayson - African fiction.
The Affair of the Thirty-nine Cufflinks by James Anderson - crime fiction set between the wars I think. Random grab.
The Comfort of Saturdays by Alexander McCall Smith - book 5 in the Isabel Dalhousie series.
Doreen by Barbara Noble - a Persephone seen recced on The B Files during last week's Persephone week, and about evacuation during the war.

So, plenty to keep me going there. It's a good job I'm on a real reading kick at the moment *and* that I have a couple of relatively free weeks coming up!
