Friday Finds

So this week was slow for new-book acquisitions, but that's fine. I used a gift certificate to get Ehud Havazelet's Bearing the Body, an interesting-looking story about a father and a son.
I received Sima's Undergarments for Women, by Ilana Stanger-Ross, from Ms. Stanger-Ross's publicist along with Rifling Paradise, which she sent me as an extra. Thank you very much for both!

I also picked up a couple of children's books- Jane Yolen's Naming Liberty (I'll be interviewing her on Tuesday) and A Confused Hanukkah, by Jon Koons. It's a favorite from the library that I wanted to share with my family. I have a small collection of Jewish kids' books at home and I thought these books were both great additions.

I got Sima's Undergarments for Women as an LT Early Reviewer book. I've been putting off reading it because it's in pdf format which doesn't really appeal to me.
