September Book Acquisitions

Tonight I have been absorbed in Genealogy so needed a quick post idea. So, I have decided to share some of the books that I have acquired this month.

The first two books are from the Penguin Popular Classics series. You may have seen other posts where I talk about books from this imprint. I now have 48 titles in this series.

Mansfield Park, Jane Austen, Penguin Popular Classics, Literature, Book AcquisitionsThe first is Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. I now have five Austen titles from the series. I need to find a copy of Persuasion to add to the set.

Moll Flanders, Daniel Defoe, Penguin Popular Classics, Classic Literature, BooksThe second is Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe. Now I need to find a copy of Robinson Crusoe to place on the shelf by it.

Tracy, California, Images of America, Tracy Historical Society, Arcadia, Tempus PublishingThe next book is one that I have been watching out for. It is Tracy from the Images of America series. The book is about Tracy, California and was put together by the Tracy Historical Society. I have friends who have a copy of the book, but they live far away so I wanted to have a copy of my own. The book is full of old pictures of Tracy.

The American Covenant, Marshall Foster, Mayflower, Pilgrims, Religion, Roger WilliamsNext up is The American Covenant: The Untold Story by Marshall Foster and Mary Elaine Swanson. The cover caught my eye as it has the nice picture of the Mayflower. The book looks at the founding of New England from a Christian perspective, so it should be interesting to dig into. Plus, it does mention at least one of my ancestors. There are several mentions of Roger Williams in the book.

I have been working on my application to the Roger Williams Family Association this evening and am getting a little bit closer to gathering all the sources that I need.

The Empire of the Ants, H. G. Wells, Mysteries, BooksLast, I found this little gem. The Empire of the Ants (and Other Stories) by H. G. Wells. This will be a nice little book to take on my next trip for some light reading. The book looks like it has been read quite a few times. I hope that means that they are great stories.

Which book would you read first?
