    Night Film is sure making the MM scene — enjoy all Leslie.

    I’m curious about the Matt Haig book after reading The Radleyd, which I loved. Enjoy your new books!

    My bookseller raved over the new Elizabeth Gilbert so I was very excited to get that last week. I hope we both love it!

    Hope you love Night Film – lots of twitter buzz about that one last week!

    I received a copy of Five Days as well and I literally jumped up and down when I opened it 🙂 I’m so excited to read that one. I hope we both enjoy it!

    Don’t you just love a stack to new books on the table. Looks like you have good reading ahead.

    Enjoy your books! I got Night Film too.

    I’m curious about The Signature of All Things, even though I have yet to read Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love (but I did see the movie!). I read some negative reviews of Eat Pray Love…and I’m going to have to bite the bullet and read the book (it’s been on my stacks for a couple of years!). To see what I think…lol

    Have a great week…and here’s MY MONDAY READING POST


    • Leslie / Jul 15 2013 7:06 pm

      I have Eat Pray Love still unread on my bookshelves too. It’s right behind me in my office taunting me to read it!


  12. Suko / Jul 15 2013 12:00 pm

    Enjoy your new books, Leslie! I didn’t know that Elizabeth Gilbert has a new book out–I’ll bet it’s good!


  13. harvee / Jul 15 2013 12:23 pm

    Night Film is on my radar…


  14. Elizabeth / Jul 15 2013 2:41 pm

    I love how you display your mailbox books.

    They look great.

    I got the Elizabeth Gilbert book at the BEA. It has such a beautiful cover.

    ENJOY all your books….they all look good.

      Thanks! I’ve been practicing my still-life shots with my books. I thought the cover of Signature of All Things was gorgeous too. That’s why I put it on the top of the stack!
