Borrowed from the library

I stopped by the library over the weekend and picked up a few of books, sort of at random.

The Telling by Jo Baker.  Her Longbourn didn’t really appeal to me, and the housemaid bit here may wind up being repetitive, but I like the idea of two timelines.

The Hairdresser of Harare by Tendai Huchu.  The cover art caught my eye, and I want to read more non-European and non-American writers.

A recent Victoria Thompson/Gaslight mystery.  I find this series to be of variable quality in terms of writing and mystery construction, but easily consumed.

Also TBR is an Oscar Hijuelos book I received as a Christmas gift.  The Joy of Half a Cookie (non-fiction) is my current commute book, to be followed (at some point in the distant future, given my reading pace) by Great Games, Local Rules: The New Great Power Contest in Central Asia.
