This Week in Books...

Even though my bookshelves are overflowing, I was feeling a little sorry for myself and made a couple of trips to the bookstore. Both online and in person!

--The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. I mentioned this book in my Friday Finds post and the author so kindly sent me a copy as no US publishers has picked up this book yet. She also signed it and included a wonderful note card! That also reminds me that I need to do another Friday Finds post...
--Still Alice by Lisa Genova from Borders
--French Milk by Lucy Knisley from Borders

--North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley from Borders
--The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins from Borders. This is for my classics challenge on Sandy's recommendation.
--Wake by Lisa McMann from Borders.

--Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. This was a contest win at Presenting Lenore.

--Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times by Amy Goodman and David Goodman from Hyperion.

I got so many great books that I'm having a hard time picking one to feature, but I'm very excited to have received The Winter Sea since it's only available in the UK or Canada!
What did you receive this week?

North of Beautiful is amazing. Happy Reading!

I confess that I made a trip to the bookstore yesterday too--even though I had such a good mail week bookwise. I reasoned that I needed to treat myself after suffering through a dentist visit.

I hope you enjoy your new books!

Just stopping by to say I've given you an award. Stop by and pick it up!

Erika: I'm excited to start it! Now I just have to find the time...

Literary: A bookstore visit is well deserved after the dentist!

Yvonne: Thanks so much!
