Friday Finds

A nice batch of finds this week!
Yesterday was my birthday and my husband gave me some great bookish gifts:

The Girl with Glass Feet, by Ali Shaw, which my friend Michele Filgate reviewed for The Book Studio, a tale of magic realism that sounds right up my alley;

Best European Fiction 2010, edited by the wonderful Aleksandar Hemon, and

Baba Yaga Laid an Egg, an entry in the "Myths" series by Dubravka Ugresic. I've been a fan of hers for years.

He also gave me a gift certificate for the Sony eStore, which I'm sure I'll enjoy!
Also new to the pile this week are
Martin Smith's A Season for the Spirit: Readings for the Days of Lent, which I'll be reading for my book club, and

Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show
by Frank Delaney, which I'll be reading for LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. I can't wait!
