Finally brought home an ARC for a book - now in paperback - that's been sitting in the breakroom since before hardcover publication: Edgar & Lucy by Victor Lodato.

And last night I bought a book I have to read for my August historical fiction book group meeting: Wolf Winter by Cecilia Ekback.

I haven't actually bought anything (yet) this month. I'm saving my energy (and $$) for the Newberry Library Book Fair at the end of the month. https://newberry.org/2018-book-fair

Okay, I lied. ;-)

My sisters were in town, and that always mean hitting a couple of bookstores. There was also a guy selling books at an arts/crafts fair we went to.

I bought:

Blacks, by Gwendolyn Brooks
Gottschalk and the grande tarantelle, also by Brooks.
The Road to San Giovanni, by Italo Calvino
Victims & villains in Vasari's lives, by Andrew Ladis
The Parthenon Enigma. by Joan Breton Connelly

And as one of the reasons they were in town is that I just had a birthday, I received as gifts:

Kaffeehaus : exquisite desserts from the cafés of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague, by Rick Rodgers
Amber Jane Butchart's fashion miscellany a treasury of stories, trivia, tips and quotations, by Amber Butchart
The Glass of Fashion. by Cecil Beaton

I prefer to think of it as a goal attempted, rather than a lie....

Four ARCs today (I left a couple of others I wanted, and at least one of the four nobody else would've chosen, so I only feel slightly greedy):

* _The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock_ by Imogen Hermes Gower (pub 9/18; historical fiction)
* The Glass Ocean by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, & Karen White (pub 9/18; historical fiction)
* The Governess Game by Tessa Dare (pub 9/18; historical romance)
* A Willing Murder by Jude Deveraux (pub 9/18; mystery)
