In My Mailbox (29)

Hello Reader Friends!  I really wanted to make this vloggy, but my web cam broke this week so you'll have to content yourself with pictures.  I'll appease you with one of Chief helping me blog.  And by helping I mean snuggling all over me and totally distracting me.

Could you say no to snuggled with this precious boy?  Ok, on to the books!

I hadn't pre-ordered a copy of this or really even planned to get it, but I saw a signed copy on sale at the grocery store.  The Nesties have all been raving about it and on an impulse I bought it.  I've read Will Grayson, Will Grayson, but none of Green's other books, so I'm excited to try this one out.

These two came for review through TLC
Faith by Jennifer Haigh
Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein

And Home Front by Kristen Hannah from Emily at Wunderkind PR

I also got a good-sized delivery of Barnes and Noble purchases this week:
Cook Yourself Thin
Brava, Valentine by Adriana Trigiani

The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
What the Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell

Killing the Black Dog by Les Murray
Voluntary Madness

This is Once Upon a Magic Christmas by my precious friend Natalie Cone.  Natalie came to visit me yesterday and brought me this beautiful book that she wrote for her niece and nephew for Christmas.  I can't wait to read it.  And of course I made her sign my copy.  This way when she's a famous author, I'll have a signed copy of her first published work!
