Friday Finds

Just two finds this Friday!
Just as well, since my TBR pile is out of control

and I really don't understand adding piles more books every week.

I got My Name is Red, by Orhan Pamuk, at the Boston Book Festival; I told myself I wouldn't buy any books at the festival but this book was already on my wish list and I was really, really good about not buying extra stuff there.

Natasha's Dance: A Cultural History of Russia, by Orlando Figes, came from the sale table at a local library. This library has a beautiful selection of used books and I was excited to get this one because I have another book by Figes in the TBR pile, on life under Stalinist Russia, and this one too has received great reviews and should be perfect for a Russophile like me.

What about you?
