Weekly Book Haul (And My Birthday!)

April 6 was my seventeenth birthday! I didn't do much for it (bogged down with homework, plus church stuff since it was a Wednesday), but I did get some awesome books! I guess you could say I had a "utopian" birthday...

Happy birthday to me:
The Shape of Things to Come by H.G. Wells
Strange Cults and Utopias of 19th-Century America by John Humphrey Noyes
A Socialist Utopia in the New South: The Ruskin Colonies in Tennessee and Georgia, 1894-1901 by W. Fitzhugh Brundage
Backwoods Utopias: The Sectarian Origins and the Owenite Phase of Communitarian Socialism in America, 1663-1829 by Arthur Bestor

Also acquired this week...
For Review:
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim by W. Bill Czolgosz (publisher)
Passage by Sandy Powers (LibraryThing Member Giveaways)
Stones for My Father by Trilby Kent (publisher)
For those of you keeping up with my weekly posts of what books I've gotten, you may have noticed that this is my second copy of Stones for My Father. I smell a giveaway in the future...

Hush by Eishes Chayil (BookTrib)
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer (thank you, Cecilia at Epic Rat)
The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer (Epic Rat again)
This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer (Epic Rat)

News from Nowhere by William Morris (GoodReads Swap)
More utopian socialism. :)

Now I just have to find room for all of these. One of these days I'll snap some pics of my overflowing bookshelves, closet, and dollhouse (yes, I've resorted to half of a dollhouse for a bookshelf).
