I got three new books this week.
- Women and Judaism, an academic book of essays edited by Rabbi Malka Drucker. I received it via the Catholic Library Association, for a professional review assignment,
- If I Told You Once, a novel by the great Judy Budnitz. I've been a fan of her short fiction for years and can't wait to read this book. Her stories have appeared in The Best American Non-Required Reading, This Is Not Chick Lit and elsewhere, and
- The Hummingbird's Daughter, by Luis Alberto Urrea. My book budget will not allow me to purchase his new hardcover book, Into the Beautiful North, so I'm going to settle for a paperback of an earlier title for now. It looks wonderful.
