Booksie's Shelves, January 7, 2017

It's a snowy day in North Carolina.  We don't get that much snow, as a rule, so when we get eight inches you know you'll be snowed in for a bit as we don't have the snow removal equipment other places do.  It's a good weekend to be snowed in.  It's NFL wildcard weekend, my favorite weekend of the season with four games on in two days.  I'm about to put on a crockpot of apples, carrots and pork chops and plan on reading and watching tv for most of the next two days.  I haven't posted since Christmas and of course I got books for Christmas.  I only really trust my son to buy me books so he gave me some and then I got gift cards that I used.  Here's what's come through the door:

1.  Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough, mystery, sent by publicist
2.  We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, Karen Joy Fowler, literary fiction, purchased
3.  The Remnants, Robert Hill, literary fiction, purchased
4.  Jackaby, William Ritter, fantasy, gift
5.  Birds, Beasts And Relatives, Gerald Durrell, memoir, gift
6.  Menagerie Manor, Gerald Durrell, memoir, gift
7.  The Translation Of The Bones, Francesca Kay, literary fiction, purchased
8.  Jerusalem, Alan Moore, literary fiction, gift
9.  The Rising, Heather Graham/Jon Land, thriller, sent by publicist
10.  The Other Widow, Susan Crawford, mystery, sent by publicist
11.  Kenmore Square, Carol June Stover, mystery, sent by author
12.  The Nix, Nathan Hill, literary fiction, purchased
13.  The Sellout, Paul Beatty, literary fiction, purchased
14.  A Spool Of Blue Thread, Anne Tyler, literary fiction, purchased
15.  Back When We Were Grownups, Anne Tyler, literary fiction, purchased

Here's what I'm reading:

1.  The Diamond Age, Neal Stephenson, paperback
2.  Dissident Gardens, Jonathan Lethem, Kindle
Mr. Splitfoot, Samantha Hunt,  Kindle Fire

4. Cockroaches, Jo Nesbo, paperback
5.  Father Hood, Simon Van Booy, paperback
6.  His Bloody Project, Graeme McCrae Burnet, Kindle Fire
7.  The Stress Of Her Regard, Tim Powers, audio
8.  Barkskins, Annie Proulx, hardback

9.  Bitter Lemons, Lawrence Durrell, paperback

Happy Reading!
