Friday Finds- NEIBA10


Above is the stash of books I found at the NEIBA conference this past weekend; mostly late fall and early spring releases, I feel like I have my next few months' of reading all set! Banned in Boston is a very interesting-looking account of censorship in the Boston area; Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, out now, is a very exciting new release from HarperCollins; A Discovery of Witches is a biblio-mystery; Enough About Love is a humorous French love story from Other Press; and The Dry Grass of August looks like a very nice literary read.

But the prettiest galley of them all was The Oracle of Stamboul, by Michael David Lukas, about a little girl who becomes an advisor to the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire.

The galley is so beautiful, I can only imagine that the finished book will be gorgeous- and from what I've read so far, the inside of the book looks good, too!


Apart from the wonderful reads I picked up at NEIBA, I also got the new translation of Madame Bovary, so I'm all in for the Group Read happening at NonSuch Book later this month!
