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!

Wow, looks like some pretty great books you brought home. Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter is one I'd like to read a few more reviews on before I decide.

Looks a huge haul and coincidence I picked up Madame Bovary myself but I dont know about which edition.

I also got a lot of these books at SIBA and have to say that I'm pretty excited about them. I also agree that the packaging for The Oracle of Stamboul is just beautiful and I am looking forward to hearing what it's like. I hope that you enjoy all your new reads!

I see a lot of great looking titles in there! The Oracle of Stamboul is stunning - I hope the book is as good.
