hmmm, there's been a few book shaped treats round here in the last few weeks! American Afterlife by Kate Sweeney looks so good. I can't wait to read it. Bert got me a reading copy of the John Waters book! argh! am also super excited to read this as I love John Waters - there's mixed reviews on goodreads tho.
H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald is a beautiful book that bert also got for free. I love nature books and this looks wonderful.
Speedboat by Renata Adler was a gift from Bert's brother for my birthday. Everyone says this book is great so I'm really looking forward to reading it. I love New York Review Books.
These two were also reading copies from Bert. I have been meaning to read Miriam Toews for quite a while, and although I don't know anything about The Book of Unknown Americans it looks really good.
I do not need two books on printmaking, but I couldn't resist these two which I bought in the museum bookshop where I work. I have some new craft activites coming up so am going to use these to get inspired.
aw. this is my favourite of all! a signed Landline by Rainbow Rowell.
have you read any of these? I have so much on my to-read pile, I am almost overwhelmed.x
