Recent Acquisitions

I'm finally back at home!! For the next month, I get to spend time with my family, visit friends, shop (mostly for books), and read. A lot. Because, if you've followed my posts like this one, you'll have realized that I must have a MASSIVE TBR pile, which perhaps relates back to item #3 on the above list...

I've been a bad blogger lately, so hopefully that, too, will improve this next month. Posting has been sporadic, even when I've finished several books that need to be reviewed. Life happens sometimes and makes me stressed and tired and not feeling like taking the effort to post.

For review:
Oleander Girl by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni (First Look)

Home Front Girl by Joan Wehlen Morrison (thanks, Reading Lark!)

From World Literature Today:
The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordano

The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice
Pennsylvania Dutch American Folk Art by Henry J. Kauffman

Purchased at Ollie's:
The Line by Teri Hall
Swipe by Evan Angler
The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein by Peter Ackroyd
Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Ben H. Winters

Purchased at a campus book sale:
To Each His Own by Leonardo Sciascia

  1. That's a gorgeous copy of the Anne Rice book!

    Wanted to let you know I sent you an email. My emails tend to go to spam because of all the links to the books I'm working on. :/

    1. Those Barnes and Noble editions are always beautiful. :) I got both your e-mails (neither went to spam, hooray!) and will be replying momentarily.
