I promise I won't forget to draw names for my contest, but all bets are off when it comes to anything else. I have been perusing the blogs of those who entered my contest, and making bookmarks as necessary. I took the last two evenings off from any blogging so my husband wouldn't feel neglected, and now between the new blogs I've added to my reader and not blogging for two nights I've got about a zillion unread posts. Although I will never complain about blogging, because I LOVE IT, boy does it ever soak up my time. If I let it. Which I do. OKAY I ADMIT IT I'M ADDICTED. (Okay, first step over with, what was the second step again? Oh right, feeding the addiction by adding to the book pile.)
I've been the recipient lately of some pretty awesome books in the mail. I just finished a review copy The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks (read my review!), despite some hassle from DHL. (They only deliver when most people, myself included, are at work, they wouldn't just leave it outside my apartment even though Fedex will, and they wanted me to drive 30 minutes to pick it up. We finally settled on having it delivered to my office.)
I got a review copy of Marie-Therese: Child of Terror by Susan Nagel. I love non-fiction historical books, especially ones involving:
- Historical mysteries
I won Across Time not too long ago from J. Kaye Oldner, the library lottery finally spit up a copy of Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper, I borrowed The Thirteenth Tale from my mom, The Other Boleyn Girl from my sister, my husband recommended a short story collection by Philip K. Dick, a new legal thriller came in the mail for me, I scored a copy of Comfort Food, and did I mention I've got a stack of books as it is?
I didn't mention that? Hmmm.... well let's just say I'm in that dilemma that I think you book bloggers understand. So many books, good books that I want to read, and time, well there seems to be a limited supply of that.
