Friday Finds - What I Did with my Store Credit

A few weeks ago my husband and I brought several bags of unwanted books to the local used book store, and racked up a significant amount of store credit. This week, I went to spend some of it!

Love Burns, by Edna Mazya, is an Israeli novel about a cuckolded husband, from Europa Editions. This was in the basement used-book section and I really can't resist Europa these days.

Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English is a new hardcover and I bought it on the strength of a recommendation from Lorri of the Jew Wishes blog and Dawn of She is Too Fond of Books.


Ivan Shcheglov's The Dacha Husband just appealed to me based on my interest in Russian books. And it's short.

Jeff bought me Philip Jose Farmer's To Your Scattered Bodies Go in an effort to introduce me to quality science fiction. I'll let you know how that goes!

Finally, I treated myself to a used (but in perfect condition) copy of the newish Penguin translation of Swann's Way, more properly Du Côté de chez Swann, the first volume in Proust's masterpiece.

What did you get this week?
