A dozen. . .
new additions to make room for on the shelves:
The Puzzleheaded Girl. Christina Stead. I have a tendency to snatch up Steads whenever I come across them. This one came from Morningside Books across the street from Columbia University.
The Grass Harp. Truman Capote. I'm reading Other Voices, Other Rooms right now and was happy to see this one on the shelves at the Strand.
Black Lamb and Grey Falcon. Rebecca West. Finally a copy of my own. Came from Morningside.
In the Days of the Comet. H.G. Wells. Thought S. might enjoy this one. From the Strand.
Earthly Possessions. Anne Tyler and Morgan's Passing. Anne Tyler. I'm working to replace all my ratty paperback copies of Tyler's early novels with decent hardbacks. These came from the Strand.
Arlington Park. Rachel Cusk. Ordered from Amazon as soon as Sandra mentioned how much she liked it and was waiting for me on the counter when we made it back home last night.
The River Wife. Jonis Agee. Also waiting for me last night. This is a Library Thing Early Reviewer copy.
The Children's Hospital. Chris Adrian. I think I ordered this so that we'd get free shipping on the Harry Potter that comes out next month.
Fieldwork. Mischa Berlinski. This came from MFS.
Rebecca West. Carl Rollyson. Another Strand purchase. Now I can return the library copy.
Pete Duel. Paul Green. I read this when I should have been packing for the trip. A pre-order from Amazon.
