New to my library...

The Book Fairy swooped down and left a whole pile of goodies for me today! (For some strange reason she left one package at my house and five packages next door, but at least they are all home where they belong!)

The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti
Legerdemain: The President's Secret Plan, The Bomb, and What The French Never Knew, by James J. Heaphey
Shining City by Seth Greenland
The Power Makers: Steam, Electricity, and the Men Who Invented Modern America, by Maury Klein
The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher, by Kate Summerscale
Abbeville by Jack Fuller

All but the last one are Advanced Reader Copies or promo copies. The timing is perfect - I leave for Amsterdam on Sunday and I will be gone for almost 2 weeks. I'll be spending a lot of time in airports and having lonely hotel breakfasts, so I should be able to get a lot of reading done.

I will be in Amsterdam on Friday and Saturday, so I'll just miss you by one day. Have fun!

Well, I don't actually arrive until Monday, but it would have been great fun to have a cup of coffee and browse a bookstore together!
