Booksie's Shelves, August 2, 2015

Another hot summer month has come and gone, none too soon for me.  Each year I dislike summer's heat and humidity a bit more.  It does help with reading to be cooped up in the house for days however. 

One thing that doesn't help are smoke alarms.  Mr. Booksie, for some unknown engineer's reason, has salted the ceiling liberally with smoke detectors.  We have four upstairs.  One was removed this week by my daughter when it decided to start beeping every minute or so.  The main one in the hall likes to go off randomly.  This morning it was at 3:30, ruining sleep for the night.  I hate this device with a passion.

Here's what's come through the door lately:

1.  Orhan's Inheritance, Aline Ohanesian, historical fiction, sent by publisher
