I received the rest of my order from Awesome Books this week, plus a few other things I am really looking forward to. A good book week, indeed!

I swapped

I bought

  • 44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith. This is the first book in the series. I was only waiting for this one so I can start reading.
  • A Presumption of Death by Jill Paton Walsh & Dorothy L. Sayers. This is the second Lord Peter Wimsey book that Jill Paton Walsh wrote/finished/co-wrote after “Thrones, Dominations”. Should be good.

For review

  • Beyond Snapshots by Rachel Devina and Peta Mazey. How to take that fancy DSLR camera off “Auto” and photograph your life like a pro.
    I had totally forgotten that I requested this on Netgalley because it was months ago. The approval came only now – strange! But I will enjoy reading this.

From the library

  •   The Accusers by Lindsey Davis. The 15th novel in the Marcus Didius Falco series. It is not my favourite Roman sleuth, but some of the books in this series are really good.

  1. Some interesting books there!

    I was lucky enough to meet Lynsey Davis back in February at a get-together organised by her publisher.

    Beyond Snapshots should good. I’ve just upgraded my dSLR camera and have bought a book to go with it, but haven’t had time to get to it.

    • That sounds interesting, to meet her in person.

      I am terrible with my camera, never turn off the auto ever and just snap away. Not a bad thing but it could do so much more….I hope this book will help.

  2. I have no idea how you can catch up with so many books 🙂 “Thank goodness” Awesomebooks does not ship to Romania :))
    Also, I do hope you will enjoy your first Pamuk as I did with mine. You can read it for Birgit’s tea and books challenge.

    • Thanks for reminding me, Ally. But now that I contacted Birgit about joining I realized that the book has “only” 596 pages!!!! Not sure she will,accept that.
      I am reading that chunkster about Marius and Sulla right now with over 900pages, so that will definitely qualify. And at the rate I am going it WILL take me until Decemerb to read it, too. Good thing the challenge runs all year.
