Mailbox Monday (another late edition)


Mailbox Monday is a weekly event hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

First of all, I just have to mention that my home library went over the 1700 books mark this weekend! Woo hoo...can I officially call myself the Queen of the book hoarders?! LOL!

Here are the books that came into my house over this past week. (Click the book titles for plot synopses)

Won (and received in the mail):

This was won from Alexia's Haiku Contest for her 100 Followers celebration.  Here is my winning Haiku:

My heart is stolen.
History has taken it
on a quest through time.

Thanks again Alexia!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!
