Made a deposit at a little free library and picked up Fraulein Schmidt and Mr. Anstruther. Then received from Bookmooch The Miniaturist.

Could not resist an ARC today: Master Slave Husband Wife: An Epic Journey from Slavery to Freedom by Ilyon Woo (pub date 1/23).

Another "ARC" (it's a hardcover & I guess it just came out this month) today: Strike the Zither by Joan He. It's historical fantasy based on a classic of Chinese lit. I read her YA novel The Ones We're Meant To Find & enjoyed it muchly.

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, because I could have sworn I had a copy but alas, I do not;

The Doors of Eden by Adrian Tchaikovsky for the hubby.

Made this purchase as a first time user of The Book Shop, via the online co-op thingy they participate in with Bookshop-dot-com. Led there from this very site. Looking forward to seeing the quality of the books - I prefer to buy in person, but I'm impatient to get the Dickens novel so thought I'd give them a try. :)

>6 terriks: Tchaikovsky's on my radar. His SF sounds interesting. Someday.

I came SO close to making it through the month without buying a book. Then I was showing a brand new bookseller how to update a display...

Saw and bought Looking for Trouble: The Classic Memoir of a Trailblazing War Correspondent by Virginia Cowles.
