What books came into your house last week?


  1. Only a few of these actually came this week -- most of it is backlog from previous weeks. Although, almost half of these arrived all in one week after I used my Christmas gift cards. I felt sorry for our mailman that week!

  2. Some good reading there. The People of the Book was very good and so was Matrimony. I really want to read that Thomas Foster book. I must check my library for it. Happy reading and take care of yourself.

  3. I've seen some people have a list that long that WAS for only the past week!

    Lucky you got Living Dead Girl. I still want to read that.

    I'm always interested in WHERE the books came from (review book from where, bookmooch, etc..)

  4. I just got an e-mail that I am not getting A Reliable Wife. I am sorry to hear that, it sounded good and I will be anxious to hear what you thought of it.

  5. There are a lot of great titles there! I've really been wanting to read Hunger Games, and I loved the Deanna Raybourn books!

  6. Wow, what a great haul, even if it's several weeks worth! I also really want to read The Hunger Games and I've heard great things about the Raybourn books from Alyce!

  7. Doctor Who books! Alrighty, I'm gonna hang around here for a bit. ;D

  8. You've got a lot of reading ahead of you. I hope you enjoy these!
