I have Roots (for a read-a-long here at PBS), The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman, a Sylvia Browne book, Dead Doctors Don't Lie by Joel Wallach, Plains of Passage and Shelters of Stone both by Jean M. Auel.  Seems like there's another one, but I can't think at the moment.  LOL  Does that mean I need to cut back on my orders?  LOL  Nah.  LOL


ETA: Oh, the other one is Above and Beyond by Sandra Brown.  :)

I recently got the five love languages... it's an awesome book--you'll never look at the people you love the same

Read the first two on your list, Megan! Jesus Land is a book I won't soon forget. I have only the 8th Lemony Snicket book on its way right now... but a nice, healthy TBR pile to tide me over :)

I currently have three on their way to me:

I Heard That Song Before-Mary Higgins Clark

Angelhead: My Brother's Descent into Madness-Greg Bottoms

The Guy Not Taken- Jennifer Weiner

I am pretty psyched about all of them. I hate it when no books are on their way to me. (doesn't happen often)


I agree with those that said Jesus Land was a really good book!!

    I have two Lucy Stone mysteries on the way........Mistletoe Magic and New Years Eve magic.  I havent read any of this series..........but there's one for different holidays.  I guess I'll save them and read them around that time of year.

    I've also requested White Chocolate Moments by Lori Wick (sounds yummy!) and 74 Seaside Avenue by Debbie Macomber!

    I have the others in this Macomber series..........was waiting for this one to start the series...........

    The last few weeks I've been overwhelmed with books...........I was actually out of town for a week and 7 arrived while I was gone.  My husband was bringing them in from the mailbox thinking I've gone out of mind.  He asked me when I got home "Is this a book swap thing".....he's finally caught on!  :0)

    I'm sure I'll have a dry spell soon..........but that's okay with almost 120 books on my TBR pile I think I can survive a famine.......for a little while at least.............
