In The Mail and Lots of Purchases

I've had a busy book week and I thought I'd share some of my wonderful finds with you.

I received Legacy by Cayla Kluver from Waggener Edstrom. Thanks Natalie at Waggener Edstrom for this excellent YA of a prince and princess torn between duty and desire.

I received Receive Me Falling by Erica Robuck and On the Bluffs by Steven Schindler has requests for review by Kelley & Hall Promotions. Thanks Kelley & Hall for the wonderful books.

I received Water Witch by Deborah LeBlanc and The Lie by Fredica Wagman as request for receive by FSB Media. Thank you FSB for the lovely books.

I received The Cave by Steve McGill from the author, review of this YA adventure to be posted shortly. Thanks to Steve McGill for the wonderful read and to Bostick Promotions for making the book available.

I purchased these wonderful finds from Borders. They were all in the bargain bins for one dollar. Some as editions of books that I had been searching for or trying to find to give the authors a try. Some have been recommended by other bloggers.

Last week, I also received a two books as requests for review from the authors and Bostick Promotions.

I've started both of these wonderful books, and reviews will be posted soon.

The Light, The Dark, & The Ember Between by J.W. Nicklaus is an anthology that I have been enjoying.

Sugar Time by Janes Adams is the story of a 50 something was and could be again TV producer, promoter, and all around wonder woman, if her life and body will let her.

(Release Date: July 2, 2009)

I hope everyone else that a wonderful book week as well!

Looks like you had a good week for getting books. Having fun reading!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Hey Hon,

Looks like you've got a lot of reading to do...

How are you doing?

I want to thank you for the nice PR you've done for my contest on your side bar! xoxo You're a sweetheart.
I do hope you'll drop in to visit if you're feeling up to it.

I'm sorry to hear about your past week...I hope you're finding some peace within your soul. ((Hugs))

If you need me, I'm here for you, do know that right?
I know sometimes I get so wrapped up in getting submissions out and writig books that I don't visit as much as I'd like to...but I hope you know it's only time that keeps me from visiting more often...I'm always out of time and never finish with the day's job!Never enough time in a day.

You're in my thoughts always...don't forget that!

Hi Dottie!

Oh, I hope you like Denise Rossetti! That is one of my favorite books. Very unique with the shadow. Loved it! I also bought The Conquest in the bargain bin and my mom picked up one of the others you bought!

Happy reading to you!

Hi Donna!

Yep, I think I did pretty good, but I read on TBQ site that Dollar General has dollar books now, so I'll make a trip over to our store to see if I can find a worthy book or two over there.

Hi Hawk!

I wish the day had a few more hours myself. Never can get everything I want to do in a single day done. I just keep falling further behind, I guess one could call it job security.

I know you come by as often as you can, it's okay. I stopped over and wrote my ending to your story. I was torn between seeking revenge and entering a happy ending. Revenge won out in the end.

Hi Doug!

That's exactly what my hubs said when he saw all of the books, but after reading your posts, I had to pick up a couple.

The hubs mentioned getting a new book shelf for the house, but was wondering where we would put it. Unfortunately, I've already ordered one, any ideas on how to tell him?

Dottie :)

Unknown said...

Hi Eleni!

I too am a bookaholic, the addiction is severe. I hope never to find a cure.

I can't wait to start Legacy, it looks great!

Dottie :)

Unknown said...

Hi Lea!

Doing much better.

My TBR stacks are trying to take over the house. Hubs is not happy, but you know, we do have a garage. His bed would fit perfect, I could have a new library. lol. not.

Unknown said...

Hi Ms M!

I went a little crazy, probably should have restrained myself, but what can I say. They were calling my name.

Dottie :)

Unknown said...

Hi Amy!

I would have picked up the second book if Borders would have had it. It looks excellent, besides the review was great.

I love finding bargain on books, the only thing better is finding bargain clothes that my daughter will wear, lol. Between her clothes addiction and my books, we slowly going broke.

Unknown said...

Hi Barbara!

Glad to see you here! I hope you're feeling better!

I went a little crazy after last week, probably shouldn't have bought any books, but I couldn't resist.

My TBR is threatening to explode, lol, but I've promised to refrain from future purchases...not!

You have an interesting selection of books. I like the covers!!! Something about covers lately has been gaining my attention.

Legacy stands out to me....looks like a good read.

Unknown said...

Hi ibeeeg!

Thanks for stopping by, I've been a bit book crazy lately.

Covers always speak to me, can't wait to read a really hot cover.

Legacy does look excellent, so glad I was able to receive it.
