New on the Shelf


Finally got out of the house and to a bookstore yesterday- Barnes & Noble, but still a bookstore. I brought my whole printed-out wishlist from and came back with The Gambler Wife: A True Story of Love, Risk, and the Woman who Saved Dostoyevsky, by Andrew D. Kaufman. 

I have one or two or a thousand things ahead of it in line but I'm still looking forward to it at some point.

I finished Shirley Hazzard's The Transit of Venus last night and will pick something new to read this evening. Always exciting!

This sounds interesting Marie, hadn't heard of it before. I created a (25) book bucket list from a much larger TBR list and one of the books on that list I'm pretty sure I got from your blog way back when -- The Jewish Husband. by Lia Levi. Does it ring a bell?

Diane, I do remember Lia Levi's book! I can't recall if I ever read it. I will look at your list!
