Mailbox Monday, September 7, 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 know this seems like a lot of books, but remember, I haven't had a Mailbox Monday post in a couple of weeks. I actually have curtailed my purchases and my requests for ARCs for now. However, I do have quite a few I am very anxious to read.






ARCS Received



Baking Cakes in Kigali, Gaile Parkin (Found this on my desk when I went back to school)
The Coral Thief, Rebecca Stott
Hitler and the Mars Bars, Dianne Ascroft
Cleopatra's Daughter, Michelle Moran.....watch for contest forthcoming
Postcript from Pemberley, Rebecca Ann Collins
The Saint and the Fasting Girl, Anna Richenda
The Sacrifice of the Sage Hen, Susie Schade-Brewer
Willoughyby's Return, Jane Odiwe
The Ascent of Man, Richard Guy
Mr. Fitzilliam Darcy, Abigail Reynolds
What do Exixtentialists Believe:, Richard Appignanesi

Purchases


Zeitoun, Dave Eggers purchased at an INDIE, on my way back from the Adirondacks
Lullaby for Morons, by Ronald Keith Siegel purchased at a cute INDIE in the Adirondacks
Field Guide to Knitting, Pawlowski, also from the Adirondacks.
The Invisible Mountain, Carolina De Robertis




I was so surprised they had a Field Guide for Knitting...how awesome is that?

I knit quite a bit, but I just had to have this one.



My apologies if I missed listing one or two, but I will go through my list on LT this week to check.

Happy Labor Day to everyone! This poster is from US History.org and I post it to you in celebration of Labor Day.
