I'm feeling jolly. Maybe it's the snow. Maybe it's the new Nook. Maybe it's just the general spirit (and yes, bless us every one).
But I want to give away some books!
Up for grabs--paperback favorites from this year (new or very gently used):
The Blue Flower (I didn't review, but the post that spurred me to pick this one up is here at Carrie's blog)--by Penelope Fitzgerald--on eighteenth-century Germany, with a very unique literary bent
O, Juliet (also not one I've reviewed--but a nice overview at Historical Tapestry)--by Robin Maxwell--a reimagining of Romeo and Juliet
The Piano Teacher (I reviewed this one waaay back in the spring)
--by Janice Y K Lee--a nuanced tale weaving wartime and 1950s Hong Kong
The Kitchen Boy--by Robert Alexander--the story of the Romanovs and the Russian Revolution through new eyes
