New old books

After visiting a friend in the hospital, my husband and I decided to go to our favorite used books shop to go treasure hunting again for a couple of hours. Our last similar trip had been way back in November, so it was high time we did it again. Here are the newest, old additions to my piles and piles of yet-to-be-read books:

    stack of old booksTales of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith
    detective fiction - the second book in The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series set in Botswana

    To Weave a Web of Magic by Claire Delacroix, Lyn Kurland, Patricia McKillip and Sharon Shinn
    fantasy - four novellas of fantasy romance

    Legacies: A Chinese Mosaic by Bette Bao Lord
    non-fiction - stories of diverse experiences of men and women in China during the past fifty years as told by a woman born in China, raised in America, wife of a former American ambassador to China and resident of Beijing in the late 1980s

    The Princes of Ireland by Edward Rutherford
    historical fiction - an epic saga of individuals and families set against the backdrop of Irish history from its tribal, pagan past to the time of Henry VIII and Ireland's invasion of England

You can see the titles of my previous hunt here. And no, I have not yet read a single book from that expedition.
