Lazy Sunday Service

I arrived in New York on Friday morning.  My luggage seemed to get lost in the airport and popped out on the baggage carousel 20 minutes after all the others, just as I was finishing off the forms and heading into the city to buy some clothes.  Other than that, it's going well.  I managed to get to The Mysterious Bookshop on Friday afternoon.  I set a purchase limit of five books.  In the end I succumbed to seven:

The Thicket by Joe Lansdale
The Visitation by Ivy Pochoda
Rough Riders by Charlie Stella
Then We Take Berlin by John Lawton
Tapestry by J. Robert Janes
Jade Lady Burning by Martin Limon
Severance Package by Duane Swiercznski

I'm happy with this haul, though its added a couple of kilo to my suitcase.  It's a wonder I only managed to stick to seven.  It would have been a lot more if I'd browsed in earnest - these were all within a few feet of the front entrance!  I'm looking forward to reading them sometime between now and Christmas. 

My posts this week:
Pushing one's luck
Review of Pale Horses by Nate Southard

What a cool store. I can see why you succumbed to temptation.
