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. :)

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!!
On their way to me-----
THE MEDITERRANEAN VEGAN KITCHEN, (for mom)
SEE NO EVIL:THE TRUE STORY OF A GROUND SOLDIER IN THE CIA'S WAR ON TERRORISM, (for Geroge)
DECORATING WITH MOSAICS, (for my niece Leeza)
THE BEST OF RUSSIAN COOKING (for Natalia)
GENTLEMEN AND PLAYERS (for me )
A RESPECTABLE TRADE (another one for me, o'boy!)
Currently reading-- THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH and YOU'VE GOT TO READ THIS BOOK! by Jack Canfield
Last read---DEATBEAT by Leo Atkins, A story of a little boy who goes to a private detective in the hopes of finding his father. A funny and quick read!
Previously read--- NINETEEN MINUTES, by Jodi Picoult, HONKY TONK KAT, ( a good beach book!) by K aren Kijewski, THE BEST AWFUL, by Carrie Fisher, JOSHUA, by Joseph Girzone, THE EDGE OF THE CRAZIES by Jamie Harrison
Wishing you all the best and happy reading!

The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York
At home in the desert: Thriving and surviving for a day, a week or a lifetime (for DH)
The 22 immutable laws of marketing (for work)
The Rest of Her Life
Songwriters on Songwriting (possibly for my brother)
Here comes a bus (for work)
And I recently said, "I'm going to hold off ordering things for a while." That obviously didn't work.
Megan, I just got a copy Blackbird House by Alice Hoffman, and her Blue Diary is on the not-yet-in-the-mail list. I really enjoy her.

Hello, I am new here. I have already mailed a few books, so I am spending my initial credits on the books below. The first two are for me and the last is for my boyfriend.
I spent too much time in the book bazaar last week:
A Light in the Window (Mitford) By: Jan Karon
This week, just today as a matter of fact, I was offered Surface Tension by Christine Kling and Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz from my WL.

I have on the way to me:
i'm jealous! i have Notes From a Small Island by Bil Bryson for my DH on the way... i think it's going to be lost because it's been 3 weeks..... 3rd lost book this month.......ugh!
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.............
Currently I have coming to me:
Pardonable Lies by Jacqueline Winspear (hope this one makes it, it was mailed on 9/5 and no sign of it yet!)
Stalking Darkness (Nightrunner #2) by Lynn Flewelling
The Body in the Transept by Jeanne M. Dams
Memoirs of a Medieval Woman by Louise Collis
Biblioholism: The Literary Addiction by Tom Raabe
Kockroach by Tyler Knox
