Last week, we celebrated our 100th BHE Post. Like what I noted, we are inviting fellow book hunters to share with us photographs of your favorite bookstores (be it indie, discounted book stores, book cafes, big retail bookshops) and a few of your amazing book finds. We welcome guest posts from anyone in the world who would wish to share their latest bookplace discoveries. Even library finds and pictures of your libraries would be most welcome. Please send your BHE post to gatheringbooks (at) yahoo (dot) com.
Here are the books that found me this week.
Books Related to Our Reading Theme
Until end of April, we are celebrating multicultural titles that highlight diversity. Here are some of my library finds.
Giant Steps to Change the World by Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee with illustrations by Sean Qualls, A Taste of Colored Water by Matt Faulkner.
Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts.
Other Books that Caught my Eye
Three Ladies Beside the Sea by Rhoda Levine and Drawings by Edward Gorey. Simply because I love anything by Gorey.
At Large and At Small by Anne Fadiman. This was recommended by Elisabeth Ellington of Dirigible Plum in one of her Monday reading posts, so I was intrigued. It is highly likely that I would be unable to read this Donna Tartt book, The Secret History but I shall try.
Ex-Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman.
Finally, we have it. The Shadow Throne by Jennifer Nielsen. I thought it would be best to read the last book in the trilogy while the story is still fresh in my mind.
