  1. Have a nice week! I haven't received my ordered books yet but I am waiting.

I got the second in the Stephanie Plum series, The firt in the Percy Jackson series. Castles, by Julie Garwood, Something Old, Something New by Beverly Jenkins, and Miranda's Big Mistake by Jill Mansell. I hope you enjoy your books!

  3. You've got a really cool haul there! There are so many of those in my wish list. Oscar Wao and Silver Sparrow are the ones I most want to read! Can't wait to hear your thoughts.

  4. Wow on your mailbox. ENJOY!!



  5. I wrote a whole paragraph and the darn computer blinked off. so with that Happy Reading. love the books in your mailbox. a few i've read, your ebook selection i want. Happy reading to you

  6. So many great books, Lena! I loved Purge and heard so much good about Cutting for Stone and Edgar Sawtelle (both are on my wishlist).

    Have fun with these wonderful books!

  7. I am currently reading "The Kid," and sad to say I truly wasted my money.this book is so hard to follow. It's like a bad ADHD day. The main character is really hard to like. The way it is written is so ......ahhh....confusing. I have abbot 100 more pages and pray for the strength not to just delete it without finishing it! So disappointed!

  8. Thanks everyone for stopping by and commenting. I am eager to read Purge, it seems intriguing. I have heard Not so great things about The Kid. And the Kindle edition was priced way too high, and I refused to buy it. Someone was gracious enough to hear me complain and sent me an Amazon gift. Otherwise, I would've passed til it was much cheaper.

  9. WOW!! You're going to have to add on a room for your books!
