Friday Finds

Some fun stuff this week.

I picked up Radiant Days, Haunted Nights, a collection of Yiddish folk tales, at the bargain table at Porter Square Books. It has some unusual selections, including folk tales about the Buddha and even an Arthurian legend with a Yiddish twist. Should be fun.

Going Away Shoes, a collection of short stories by Jill McCorkle, came from Algonquin Books.

I bought The Real Life of Sebastian Knight, by Vladimir Nabokov, on impulse because it's been forever since I've read any Nabokov and I'm excited about The Original of Laura, coming in November.

Finally, for the first time in a while I bought a quilt book, Simply Amazing Spiral Quilts, by RaNae Merrill. I wrote a little more about that on my craft blog if you're interested.
