Nothing the previous week but 4 new books this last week. It's ridiculous how happy I am when I get books in the mail!
The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy - Biblical fiction based on the book of Judges, received from the author for review.
Then I had to order a textbook for one of my students from Amazon Japan. And it would've been lonely not to order something else with it! And a waste of packaging, right? (No need to remind me that I was trying not to buy any books this month after all the books I got at the end of the year).
So I also got:
Rashomon and 17 Other Stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa - After mentioning it in my review the other day, I went ahead and got this, the Penguin Classics Deluxe edition. Doesn't it have a great cover?
And two manga for Rhinoa's Manga Challenge that I've heard good things about. I look forward to trying them out.
Monster, volume 1 by Naoki Urasawa (a serial killer thriller)
xxxHolic, volume 1 by CLAMP (despite the title it's apparently not x-rated)
So what books have you received lately?
