This Week in Books...

This week brought me books from a variety of sources. I received review books, a contest win and a few from swap sites as well.

--The Blue Cotton Gown: A Midwife's Memoir by Patricia Harman from Paperback Swap
--The Everything Slow Cooker Cookbook: 300 Delicious, Healthy Meals That You Can Toss in Your Crockery and Prepare in a Snap by Margaret Kaeter from Paperback Swap
--Mother of the Believers: A Novel of the Birth of Islam by Kamran Pasha from FSB Associates

--Best Intentions by Emily Listfield from Simon & Schuster

--Is It Just Me or Is Everything Shit?: Insanely Annoying Modern Things by Steve Lowe, Alan McArthur, and Brendan Hay from a contest win

--Origin by Diana Abu-Jaber from Bookmooch

I love the cover for Origin. This is one of those books that I picked up solely for the cover, but I was happy to find the description looked interesting too. I don't know what it is about this cover that I like so much...maybe it's the simplicity, maybe the warm colors.

I think I will love The Blue Cotton kind of book. I am adding it to my wish list. I will be interested to see your review on it. Happy reading!
