From the Cataloguer's Desktop

Just a mini-list. But I HAD to post it ... I think the cataloguing gods were monitoring some of last night's conversation on fairy tales, 'cause I had a couple of goodies in today's batch o' books. :-) A couple of quirky fiction titles for you as well, due to helping out with another library this week.

Sweetness & Light : The Mysterious History of the Honeybee, by Hattie Ellis.

A View from the Eye of the Storm : Terror and Reason in the Middle East, by Haim Harari.

The Good, the Bad, and the Undead, by Kim Harrison.

What Do You Say To A Naked Elf?, by Cheryl Sterling.
