In My Mailbox #36

One month at college, and already my measly two shelves are groaning.

For review:
The Order of Odd-Fish by James Kennedy (thanks to the author and his publicist!)
On page 100. Completely wacky, but fun.

Thanks, Laura's Reviews!
The Spanish Bride by Georgette Heyer
Penhallow by Georgette Heyer
The Unknown Ajax by Georgette Heyer

Purchased for class:
The Epic of Askia Mohammed by Thomas A. Hale
The Epic of Kelefaa Saane by Sirifo Camara
I'm writing a paper for African Civ relating West African epics to historical processes, starting with Sundiata from the Mali Empire.

Goodwill purchases, because, OMG!, the local store here actually has a decent selection of books:
Legends of the Rhine by Wilhelm Ruland
The Under-Dogs by Mariano Azuela
In a Perfect World by Laura Kasischke
Been on my wishlist for a while as one of those sorta weird adult literary sci-fi-ish novels.
The Kingdom of Matthias by Paul E. Johnson and Sean Wilentz
Nonfiction about a 19th-century religious group/cult thing.
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

For free:
World Literature Today is so awesome - when I went to their book club, they offered up more free books! Again, I love college...
Good Offices by Evelio Rosero
The Green Corn Rebellion by William Cunningham
Voyage to Kazohinia by Sandor Szathmari
Aaaaaahhhhh!!!! I can't believe I found this!!! Hungarian satiric dystopian novel from 1941; the English edition just came out in July and I'd never even heard of it before!!!!
Wild Unrest: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and the Making of "The Yellow Wall-Paper" by Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz
The Prophecies by Nostradamus
The Irresistible Fairy Tale: The Cultural and Social History of a Genre by Jack Zipes
