Friday Finds! Cool Stuff Once Again, Cause I Do Have Awesome Taste

The first thing I got this week, from Bookmooch, is Andrea Levy's The Long Song, nominated for the Booker Prize last year. It looks great!





Vestments, by John Reiminger, is a wonderful-looking novel about a conflicted Catholic priest. I'd had my eye on this book at one of my local indies for a long time and decided to finally take the plunge.

Finally, I got Abraham Joshua Heschel's The Sabbath, his meditation on the Jewish day of rest. I came across this book several years ago when I was cataloging a collection of books in a disused library; I read some of this slim and lovely volume but I'd like to take the time to read the whole thing. Heschel was an important and influential rabbi and an activist; he marched alongside Martin Luther King Jr. and worked tirelessly throughout his life for social justice.
