Booksie's Shelf, January 30th, 2014

Things have been interesting here in the South this week.  We're not used to rotten weather, and we're thrown for a loop when it occurs.  Heck, I spent my working life in education so I wouldn't have to drive when it snowed!  I'm appalled like the rest of the country at the horrors our friends in and around Atlanta endured and glad things finally worked out.

The only good thing about snow is lots of inside time for reading.  Add in back spasms for me, and I've been housebound and reading all week.  I've been in one of the great houses in England uncovering historical secrets, a NYC apartment with a new puppy, inside the lair of computer hackers helping the government and in rural England solving a murder.   Here's what came in new this week:

1.  Careless People, Sarah Churchwell, nonfiction, sent by publisher
2.  Moth And Spark, Anne Leonard, fantasy, sent by publisher
3.  Bark, Lorrie Moore, anthology, Vine review book
4.  Under A Silent Moon, Elizabeth Haynes, mystery, Vine review book
5.  Form Your Own Limited Liability Company, Anthony Mancuso, nonfiction, Vine review book
6.  Creating An Ideal Life, Janet DeLee, contemporary fiction, sent by author
7.  Winter's Bone, Daniel Woodrell, literary fiction, Paperbackswap book
8.  Nothing Personal, Mike Offit, contemporary fiction, sent by publisher
9.  Scent Of Butterflies, Dora Levy Mossanen, literary fiction, sent by publisher
10.  The Up Side Of Down, Megan McArdle, nonfiction, sent by publisher

Here's my current reads, or at least books I've started:

1.  The Luminaries, Eleanor Catton, reading on Kindle
2.  Redbreast, Jo Nesbo, reading on Kindle Fire
3.  The Orphan Master's Son, Adam Johnson, hardback
4.  Rivers, Michael Farris Smith, hardback
5.  A March Of Folly, Barbara Tuchman, hardback
