Friday Finds- A Few Cool Things

Some fun stuff this week.

Atiq Rahimi's novel Earth and Ashes, new from Other Press, arrived unexpectedly this week. Thank you!!!

Ghita Schwarz's book Displaced Persons came courtesy of LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. Thank you LT!

Hereville:How Mirka Got Her Sword is a graphic novel about a troll-fighting, 11-year-old Orthodox Jewish girl, by Barry Deutsch. It comes out soon but an ARC arrived this week!

I picked up Susan Getgood's Professional Blogging for Dummies because I'm in it- I'm profiled on page 20. Thank you Susan for this honor!

I spent the rest of my bookstore credit this week and among my new treasures are Paul Scott's Booker Prize winner, Staying On, and Millard Kaufman's second and final novel, Misadventure. I read Scott's Raj Quartet in high school and can't wait to read this novel, a coda to that series. I read Kaufman's first novel, A Bowl of Cherries, last year and look forward to the follow-up. Sadly Kaufman passed away recently so this will be the last from him.

What are you reading this weekend?
