Odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    This Week's New Releases I'm Excited About and/or You'll Probably See Here Soon:
  • The Old Man by Thomas Perry -- a 60 year-old widower and his dogs in a thriller set in Vermont. Sounds fun.
  • The Iron Ghost by Jen Williams -- I fully intended on getting the first book in this series, and never got around to it -- this one makes me want to set aside a week for both.
  • The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser -- a YA take on Tuesday Next, Libriomancer, etc.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to vihasi shah, ravencrimereads , and JL's Bibliomania for following the blog (or the BookLikes version) this week.
