Friday Finds!! What's New on the Shelf This Week


I did a major weed of my TBR shelves this weekend- I got rid of about 2/3 of the overflow off the shelves themselves. And I'm vowing to slow my rate of acquisition as well. But we'll see how that goes!

Of course that starts next week!
I got Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by comedian/actress Mindy Kaling. Yeah, I just gave in to the hype. This was another one that was flying off the shelves at my former workplace and I couldn't resist the opportunity to buy it from another local indie, Back Pages Books.

Stay Awake, Dan Chaon's latest collection of short stories, arrived via LibraryThing. I'm mostly done reading it and it's great, especially if you loved Await Your Reply, his last novel. And I did!

I picked up The Third Policeman, by Flann O'Brien, at the great Pazzo Books in Boston. It's a comic novel that I've always wanted to read and have had trouble tracking down. Now it is mine!

What about you? What's new on your shelves this week?
