This Week in Books...


This week brought a lot of books to my door! My reading slowed way down in April, so I didn't have many books to get rid of. My kitchen counter is filled with books that don't have a space in my book shelves.

Saturday:
--Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson from Amazon
--Willow by Julia Hoban from Amazon

Monday:
--Bloom by Elizabeth Scott from Paperback swap

Tuesday:
--The End of the Alphabet by CS Richardson from Bookmooch
--Last Last Chance by Fiona Maazel from a Twitter contest win
--The Greatest Knight: The Unsung Story of the Queen's Champion by Elizabeth Chadwick from Sourcebooks
--The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the Worldby A. J. Jacobs from Bookmooch

Thursday:
--First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria: How a Peace Corps Poster Boy Won My Heart and a Third World Adventure Changed My Lifeby Eve Brown-Waite from the author as a contest win



This week I was thrilled to receive First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria. After Jen and S Krishna's great reviews I knew this was one I had to read!

I've only read The Know-It-All and The End of the Alphabet. Both are great reads. I'm running out of room myself when it comes to books.My books are all over my bedroom floor. =)

Happy reading!

Whoo-hoo, you've gotten so many books I really want to read! I'm particularly interested in First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria, which I think I might be getting from Tina at Bookshipper (fingers crossed!).
