I took a walk down to my mailbox and had two books waiting for me...I LOVE this site!

I just received "Mirror, Mirror" by Gregory Maguire  and

"Don't let's go to the dogs tonight" by Alexandra Fuller.

Mount TBR is growing by leaps and bounds lately!! 

Anyone else get something fun??

Looks like you have some great reading ahead of you!  I love this site too!  I have been wanting to read 'Don't let's go to the dogs tonight' I hope you enjoy it!  I too have a healthy TBR pile...isn't it great!  ehehehe have a great day!  No books in the mail today but I am patiently waiting for a few scrumptious reads!

 I've just ended a project: I have been doing book reviews on our local radio station.  One book reviewed a week for FOUR YEARS.  And I just told them I'm done.  I have four more reviews written and ready to tape...but this means I can read what I want when I want...and it's ridiculous how excited I am! LOL...I think getting two new books today just underscored my happiness!

Anyway, I hope you get your reads soon!!  ;)

I got three books today!! I was so happy, I got Tribute by Nora Roberts, A Nice Class of Corpse by Simon Brett and Miss Melville Rides a Tiger by Eveyne E. Smith. I don't know when I am going to get to them because of My huge TBR pile but I think I will sneak two of them in very soon. I love Simon Brett and Nora Roberts, the verdict is still out on Eveyne Smith.

Elaine...Oh, that's a Mrs. Pargeter book, right?  I love that series!  I'm still reading Mrs. Pollifax, but I'm almost finished.  What fun it's been to read these again.

Have fun deciding what to read!

A banner day for me too --- Anonymous Rex by Eric Garcia (all the way from the Virgin Islands!) and Bootlegger's Daughter by Margaret Maron.  Two books, both first in a series, and I'm so looking forward to reading them.

I was delighted today.  The mailman couldn't fit the books in my mailbox so he delivered them to my door and I received a copy of ANNA KARENINA that is practically brand new and a really good copy of Revenge .    I have decided that I have read so much garbage in my life, I would try some of the classics.  'REVENGE" isn't a classic but a good book anyway.

I didn't receive anything today but I've been awaiting a book for nearly four weeks now. I think it has gone walkabout. :(
