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!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. WOW - great haul!

    I've heard that the Virgin and the Crab is excellent. Happy Reading!

  2. Cardboard looks interesting. I saw it in quite a few mailboxes this week. I love library sales. They are so much fun! You did very good at yours. Enjoy all your new books!

  3. Oh, these sound fabulous: Cardboard really caught me eye; and I don't think I've read this Margaret Drabble...sounds great!

  4. My book club read The Painter of Battles. The pace is slow, but so beautifully written, and as all of Perez Reverte's books, surprising.

  7. Amy--I tried to win Virgin and the Crab on Reader's Respite, but didn't win. My comment must have interested the author because he contacted me to read and review the book. I was thrilled!

    Beth--Cardboard really does sound like a good read and it's a good human interest topic...anorexia.

    Laurel-Rain--This is my first Drabble book. I was first intrigued by the cover and then the description of a historical Asian theme sold me on it.

    Stephanie--I read The Club Dumas a few years ago and really liked it. He definitely has a unique and beautiful writing style.

    Carol and Suko--Thanks for stopping by!

    Ryan--Dreaming the Serpent Spear is actually the third book in the series. I really need to read these. I've always been fascinated by Boudica.

  9. Library sales always get me. The Hill Witch looks like fun. My library always puts a few shelves of books on sale each week and my son and I go and take a peak.
