Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. WOW - great haul!

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

    My mailbox is here.

  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.

  5. What a great stack. Enjoy!

  6. All I can say is


    Here's mine: http://suko95.blogspot.com/2010/03/mailbox-monday_15.html

  7. Cardboard does sound rather interesting as does Dreaming the Serpent Spear.

  8. 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. Cardboard just arrived today -- I hope it's as good as I hope it will be. Enjoy all of your books

  10. 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.

  11. That is quite a list of books! You have a few good ones in there it looks. I am curious to see what you think of them. Happy reading!
