Mailbox Monday ~ May 16th
After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.
Last week I attended BEA and that means lots of new books. Over the three days I picked up a total of 40 books — not a lot by BEA standards but only as many as I could carry. I was going to bring my rolling bag on days two and three, but when I hauled it out of my closet, a wheel broke off! I think the book gods were trying to tell me something.
Today I’m featuring 10 books that were already on my want-to-read list. I ended up picking up another 30 books that were too tempting to pass up. I will write about those in the coming weeks.
