Today's Acquisitions

I was in Barnes & Noble today and picked up a few treasures.

On the remainder table was Jane Smiley's Good Faith, which I snapped up at a mere $5. In mysteries I found a couple of Donna Leon's Guido Brunelli mysteries, Death at La Fenice and Death in a Strange Country. I also got the second in the Laurie R King Sherlock Holmes/Mary Russell series, A Monstrous Regiment of Women.

And since I expect the not-trollope group is going to be reading ZolaI bought a copy of Germinal, a book I've heard described as Zola's masterpiece.

At home the mail had brought the Zola novel that Jan in the trollope group recommended to the not-trollope group: The Ladies' Paradise.

Also waiting for me was Michael Innes' Inspector Appleby mystery, The Daffodil Affair. There was a novel I ordered the other day for Wilhelm, Anonymous Lawyer by Jeremy Blachman, purportedly the first blog novel.

My B&N has a positively scrumptious selection of books for JUST ONE DOLLAR (feeling faint, hold one second). Between that and the 15% off sticker they sent me (to affix to a book of my choice!) I went hog wild there today. Did I mention the Amazon Fairy also paid me a visit? Have blogged about same, and I will only say what larks, Pip!
