Mailbox Monday-Catch-up, Tuesday 11, 2009

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. "Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists." ~Marcia






I was thrilled to receive some ARCs this week and then went shopping after reading last weeks Mailbox Monday. So thank you to those who recognize any books they posted as a review. I am such a weakling. You'll notice the book called, The Man Who Loved Books Too Much, by Allison Hoover Bartlett. This is a non-fiction story about "unrepentant & obsessed book thief named John Charles Gilkey. So far it is extremely fascinating!!! I'm not that bad as a collector anyway.



ARCS Received:

The Man Who Loved Books Too Much, by Allison Hoover Bartlett
The Wildest Heart, by Rosemary Rogers
