At The Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted every week by Crazy For Books. This week's question: Right this instant, what book are you dying to get your hands on (past, present, or future).

I've got two answers:

1. I'm waiting ever-so-impatiently for Amazon to deliver my latest order which contains Dorothy L Sayer's translation of Dante's Inferno (in three separate books: Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise). I've been wanting these books for a looooooong time. They could come any minute now and I wouldn't complain.

2. The last two entries in the Philo Vance Series by S. S. Van Dine (The Garden Murder Case and The Winter Murder Case). Getting my hands on these would be both good and bad. Good because I would finally have and be able to read these; Bad because I would then have finished the series and there would be no more Philo Vances to read.

I just started reading DLS's mysteries. The first one had an about the author page that talked about her being an translator. What a talent! You may have inspired me to look into her Dante.

The Sayers' books arrived in the mail today! Woo Hoo! (Unfortunately, none of them were published in my birth year, so I'm not going to get to them for a while....)
