Welcome to Mailbox Monday! Actually, I’m listing all the books I brought into the house from all sources and not just the ones I found inside my mailbox…
From my dear friend JoAnne, the Book Zombie, via bookmooch: Stewart O’Nan’s Songs for the Missing
From the library: audio- A Wrinkle in Time / Madeline L’Engle – for discussion soon!
Purchased from the library booksale cart: Guns Germs and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies / Jared Diamond
Purchased from the White Birch Bookstore in North Conway NH: The Fiction Class by Susan Breen, When We Were Romans by Matthew Kneale, and The Best American Short Stories 2009 Edited by Alice Sebold (my husband picked this! I’ll see if I can’t somehow trick him into reviewing a few).
Purchased from Borders because I was buying a book as a gift and thought I would just check on a few books I keep saying I want to read, so I came home with the paperback of Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail ’72 by Hunter S Thompson. I suppose I was somewhat influenced by all the ads on TV right now trying to convince me that Scott Brown is horrible and anti-woman and that Martha Coakley is horrible and wants to spend all my money. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s election day so that the ads will stop and my phone will cease to ring.
In other news, I ordered cards from Moo – thank you Book Line & Sinker! – that I won and hope to give out with bookmooch and possibly at the book blogger convention in NYC in May.
