Yet Another Trip to the Library

There’s only one left from my last stack and I was killing time between shifts at work today. Luckily the library is right next door to the mall! Here’s the latest batch:

library-lootHigh Fidelity, by Nick Hornby. He’s such an established modern author that I might as well give him a try. Apparently there’s a separate Reader’s Guide available as well, which seems a bit excessive. This is one of my picks for the Guardian Challenge.

The Case of the Missing Books, by Ian Sansom. I’ve been toying with the idea of this one for a while, but it’s a mystery involving books so that’s two counts in its favor. And apparently there are two more in the series so it can’t be too bad.

The Talented Mr. Ripley, by Patricia Highsmith. Another one for the Guardian Challenge. I gravitate towards mystery much more than crime (violence not quite being my thing), but this looks more intellectual.

The Companion, by Ann Granger. Victorian mystery featuring lady’s companion Lizzie Martin. Amazon calls it a bit predictable, apparently, but that’s okay with me as long as it’s fun.

The Weirdstone of Brisingamen: A Tale of Alderley and The Moon of Gomrath: A Tale of Alderley, by Alan Garner. Something brought these to mind the other day and I think it’s high time for a reread. Actually it’s probably high time to buy my own copies, but this will do for now.

The Fairy Tale Detectives (The Sisters Grimm, Book 1), by Michael Buckley. I’ve been meaning to try this fun children’s series, and now seems to be a good time to throw it into the mix.
