Booksie's Shelves, January 26, 2017

Somehow it is already the end of January in this new year of 2017.  I've been doing the usual things for this time of year.  That includes watching a ton of NFL football and college basketball, going to the gym, reading and watching tv.  I'm about to start a round of bookish trips with a visit to the book fair in Savannah in February and to Charlottesville in March.  In reading news, I've taken a step back and I'm reading Bleak House by Charles Dickens.  I'm really enjoying the slow pace which makes me remember why I like Victorian literature as well as steampunk fiction.  Here's what's come through the door lately:
