    Here are the three mystery books I received from Newtonville Books yesterday.

    In looking at the books I am very intrigued.

    First up is "I Hold A Wolf" by Laura Van Den Berg:
    This books contains 11 ghost stories.

    Second is a trilogy published as one nearly 600 page volume. "The Complete Charlie Martens Trilogy: Vernon Downs, World Gone Water and Garden Lakes" by Jaime Clarke. These follow a man as he goes through life after his parents were killed when he was young:

    I am always on the lookout for oddities featuring Stephen King. Recently learned of the existence of this book and embarked on finding a copy at a price I was willing to pay. And I scored.
    "Mid-Life Confidential The Rock Bottom Remainders Tour America with Three Chords and an Attitude":

    Recent shipment from Mr. Freeman's Patreon subscription.
    Signed trade "The Girl Who Builds Monsters" and signed paperback "The Halloween Children":

    I have read those both previously and will read them again. These will become my reading copies. Read the ARC of "The Girl Who Builds Monsters" and loved the art but I have to admit it looks much nicer printed on the paper stock in the hardbound. Just a beautiful book.

    The narrator was very good I thought. I don't think you'll go wrong either way.
    My backlog of physical books is larger than it is for audiobooks so I am leaning towards the audio.

    The interior maintains the simplicity with black and white illustrations with one exception. The original cover art is in color:

    The very unique Wheatstraw paper boards are stunning:

    The wheatstraw is clearly visible in the construction of the paper and creates a unique look and feel.

    The flat spine adds to the simplicity:

    Suntup's latest Limited release - The Auctioneer by Joan Samson:

    Have not read the story so I can offer no opinion but I love the simplistic understated beauty of this edition.
    Strong earth tones and cattle on the slipcase set the mood.
