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?
