This was a much subdued week for me on the book acquisitions front. I know I generally don't post books I've bought so you all have no way of knowing but usually my book buying trumps the numbers in the mailbox. Well, this week, I only found two books in my mailbox and I didn't buy a single book. But a much less acquisitive week is a good thing for me right now as I'm scurrying to meet a deadline that seems to be looming suddenly. Anyway, here's what I did find in the mailbox this week:
Lift by Rebecca O'Connor.
Sent from the author, this memoir about falconry appeals to the eclectic reader in me. I know nothing about falconry but it strikes me as ultra-cool. And reading about it means I am well out of range of any and all sharp beaks and claws so I'm more than happy to have my mitts on it.
Weekends at Bellevue by Julie Holland
A review book won from LibraryThing Early Reviewers, I am always fascinated by first person medical accounts. Perhaps the fact that I was always too squeamish to ever even consider medical school plays into my desire to read about those folks who didn't pass out when it was fetal pig dissection day in high school.
As always, if you'd like to check out the goodies that other people found in their mailboxes, check out The Printed Page where Marcia kindly hosts this meme every week.
