Making Up for My Small Library Stack

  (hosted by Marg of Adventures of an Intrepid Reader and Eva of A Striped Armchair)

I didn't actually pick up a lot from the library this week (which is good, because I am sooooo behind).  Just these two:
The Line by Teri Hall
The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer (book club set, yeah!)

A few came for review, though:
You by Charles Benoit (so freaking excited by this!)
Snap by Carol Snow
Dewey's Nine Lives by Vicki Myron

But when it came to the bookstore, the library sale, and a random garage sale, I got a bit crazy (well, not too much):
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
The Aeneid by Virgil
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (you can never have too many copies of this, right?)
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman

I also happened to win (my lucky week): 
Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey from Christina T at Reading Exclusively

A box of books from Kate at The Neverending Shelf (to donate to my local library :)
The September Sisters by Jillian Cantor
Ash by Malinda Lo
Arson Estevan Vega
The Cave by Steve McGill
Alice in Wonderland and Philosophy by William Irwin and Richard Brian Davis

I also won one of the bags of goodies from the book blogger conference from GalleySmith.  It had tons of bookish stuff in there, too much for me to write down, so I'll just send you to look at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books' list.

Definitely a lot of books coming in this week!  What about you?

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Great haul of books! I'm actually feeling a little guilty lately that I haven't persevered and tried to finish The Host. I started it ages ago, but I wasn't immediately swept away, so I laid it aside (for eternity). Must get back to it since I'm trying to overcome my fear of big chunky books.

    Love your blog! I'll be back.

  2. Congratulations on the Swag Bag win! Woo Hoo!!!!

  3. Andi, don't feel guilty for not finishing it! But, maybe you should try again sometime - it was pretty entertaining to me.

    Sheila, I was very excited to get it!

  4. I read The House of the Scorpion with a book club a few years ago. I really liked it, but it turned out that several of the group don't like science fiction, so it wasn't the best group pick. :(

  5. Yeah, I'm a bit nervous that some of them will hate it, but since we've already had a few books no one liked, I'm hoping it will be more successful. I loved it, though :)


Love it when you comment!
