Friday Finds - A Few New TBRs







A few finds this Friday.

I found Asta in the Wings, by Jan Elizabeth Watson, at the wonderful Cornerstone Books, an indie in Salem, Mass., and it looks like exactly what I hope to find when I visit indie bookstores- a good, unusual book.

Birds of America, stories by Lorrie Moore, came via Bookmooch. I need to read more of her; and I know, I have to read A Gate at the Stairs, and I will, eventually!

Finally, The Five Scrolls, by Herbert N. Bronstein, came from the book sale table at work. This is a really extraordinary art book of Bible texts used in Jewish festival services. I've seen this book in several synagogue libraries and even though I don't celebrate any of these holidays, I'm thrilled to have my own copy.
What were you thrilled to discover this week?

I just read A Gate at the Stairs and loved it. Next I want to read Birds of America.

I loved Birds of America and think that Moore is one of my favorite short story authors. Have you read her other book called Self Help? That one is an all time favorite of mine and I recommend it highly. I hope you enjoy the new reads!
