What books came into your house last week? I got a funny book for a birthday present and a couple for myself.
Henri, le Chat Noir: The Existential Musings of an Angst-Filled Cat by William Braden. I love Henri's videos, so the book has me laughing from page one.
I love the Friends of the Library store at the main Salt Lake City library and try to stop there whenever I am in town for work. I found these two books when I was there for depositions in one of my sex abuse cases.
May We Be Forgiven by A. M. Holmes. This won the 2013 Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction (formerly known as the Orange Prize for Fiction).
Bread and Chocolate: My Food Life In and Around San Francisco by Fran Gage. Published in 2002, some (not all) of the restaurants and vendors she writes about are gone, but I moved to San Francisco in 2002 so the book captures the city where I lived for five years. And the recipes are great, no matter if the restaurants that inspired them are gone.
