Books Galore

It must have been my lucky week. So many great books came into my house.

First, from Marcia at The Printed Page via Read it Forward  I received Royal Blood by Rona Sharon. Thanks, Marcia!

Through BookMooch I got the first book, The Bad Beginning, in A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. 

Tuesday saw the arrival of a huge box of books courtesy of Natasha at MawBooks. I still can't believe how lucky I was to win this giveaway. Yay!  Thanks, Natasha. :)

Here is what was in the box:

Songs of the Humpback Whale
Perfect Match
Second Glance
My Sister's Keeper
Vanishing Acts
Nineteen Minutes
Handle With Care

These were all signed by Jodi Piccoult. 

These are going to make such great reads this summer.

Through Library Thing's Early Reviewer Program I received Afraid by Jack Kilborn on Thursday. I have been very lucky these last few months to get so many great books. Not so many I am interested in this month, though, so probably not going to get the one I requested. I can't complain.

I managed to keep myself out of the bookstores this week. A very good thing when I look at my account balance so far! 

So, what did you get this week? 


  1. A great week for you. You'll have to have a Jodi Picoult readathon LOL. I received Royal Blood & Afraid in my mailbox this week :-)
    Happy reading

  2. So many books! Nothing like getting a box. It's like Christmas when I get a book in the mail. Happy reading.

    At Black-Eyed Susan's, I host Little Lov'n Monday. It's a day we commit to reading and commenting to others. Drop us a link and you earn a chance to win a free book.

    Happy reading.

  3. OMG. Sooooo jealous! I love Jodi Picoult!!! I hope you enjoy all your new books-please do tell me what you think of Second Glance. My personal and I think underappreciated favorite.
    Congrats on all your goodies (and staying out of the bookstores-I wish I had such self-control;)!!!
