>1 varielle: That's my favorite Orwell title. Even more fun to say than Down and Out in Paris and London. Your second pick sounds interesting, too.

Just back after 10 days of vacation. Looked at the new ARCs & grabbed an historical mystery due to be published in June: A Most Agreeable Murder by Julia Seales.

An ARC had been set aside for me. Found it when I came in today. It's historical fiction due to be published this month: Good Night, Irene by Luis Alberto Urrea.

And I couldn't resist the lure of a history book. I bought The Sergeant: The Incredible Life of Nicholas Said: Son of an African General, Slave of the Ottomans, Free Man Under the Tsars, Hero of the Union Army by Dean Calbreath.

* The Paris Agent by Kelly Rimmer
* Canary Girls by Jennifer Chiaverini

Oddly, an ARC for an historical novel published in October of 2022 just showed up: The Whalebone Theatre by Joanna Quinn.

From an FOL the Westvaco edition of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack $2. From a research library sale The Library of Ferdinand Columbus $1. (Both of these were real finds. From eBay Woolfe in Ceylon which I’d been looking for forever. From another FOL Dictionary of the Tarot.

Had 4 books on hold. I put two hardcovers & one paperback back. But I did buy an historical novel in paperback: The War Librarian by Addison Armstrong.

I own The Marlow Murder Club (as yet unread), so when I saw book 2 of the contemporary mystery series has just landed, I bought that too: Death Comes to Marlow by Robert Thorogood.
