    Retail Anarchy sounds very interesting. I often wonder the same thing except in New York it’s more like $5 for a cup of tea or coffee. Especially when out at a restaurant for dinner.

    Retail Anarchy jumped out at me as well.

  3. February 23, 2009 7:41 am

    Guillermo Del Torro! The Strain sounds awesome.

  4. February 23, 2009 7:43 am

    Sounds like a good week. Into the Beautiful North looks good. Enjoy your reading!

  5. February 23, 2009 8:25 am

    Nada. Zip. Zilch. That’s what I got this week, *a tear rolls down my cheek…..

    I’m really hoping I get The Strain, I do so love a good vampire tale. I’m also hoping I score Big Sid’s Vincati, since I’ve been around a crazy motorcycle guy for the last thirty years, who actually does things like take an old Honda SL350 and turn it into a cafe racer!

    Good week! Retail Anarchy sounds good.

  7. February 23, 2009 8:46 am

    Yes, you counted my books right – 18. I thought things were going to slow down b/c I’ve quit requesting for awhile, but who knows? You got some good ones – enjoy!!

    Great list of books….Del Toro has a book…cool!

  9. February 23, 2009 8:57 am

    I have been waiting on The Local News….looks great!

  10. February 23, 2009 9:08 am

    Oooh I wonder if I will get Retail Anarchy too, it sounds very interesting!

  11. February 23, 2009 9:16 am

    You got some good books Kathy. I got Local news from the meet up on Sunay. Fingers crossed that I get The Strain and the retail one. Hope you have a good week.

    The Local News sounds wonderful! You got a great variety!

    Great list Kathy. I have been waiting on The Local News and hope that I get a copy.

  14. February 23, 2009 10:10 am

    It sounds like you have a great set of books!

  15. February 23, 2009 11:02 am

    Looks like you got a lot of good books there. Enjoy!

  16. February 23, 2009 11:42 am

    I’ve been drawn to the subject in *The Local News*, hoping it’s a good one!

    Your memoir (*Confessions of a Former Child*) and *Retail Anarchy* have got me interested … I love a good non-fiction book!

  17. February 23, 2009 11:53 am

    What a lot of good books! I think Into the Beautiful North sounds great!

  18. February 23, 2009 11:53 am

    The Strain looks so awesome…I’m just a little jealous 🙂

  19. February 23, 2009 12:02 pm

    Great pile!! I can’t wait to read your reviews. Into the Beautiful North is gorgeous.

  20. February 23, 2009 12:23 pm

    I’m anxious to hear about INTO THE BEAUTIFUL NORTH!

  21. February 23, 2009 12:36 pm

    I received The Strain also…looks great.
    Have fun reading your great stack.:)

  22. February 23, 2009 1:20 pm

    I’m amazed at how many books you touch each week.

  23. February 23, 2009 4:31 pm

    You had a great week, too! I also received The Strain and The Local News. Now, I just need the time to read them…

  24. February 23, 2009 5:36 pm

    These look like a lot of fun! The only one I’ve heard of is The Local News (because I saw it on Shelf Awareness). I look forward to reading more about these books when you post reviews!

  25. February 23, 2009 8:38 pm

    The retail anarchy one and the therapist’s memoir sound intriguing to me. I’ll be curious to see what you think … but the retail one actually sounds good enough for me to check out right now … I am a sucker for these types of books for some reason.

  26. February 23, 2009 8:54 pm

    Enjoy your new books! I’m still on a strict book diet right now so I’m only getting library books these days.

  27. February 23, 2009 9:54 pm

    Still hoping I will get The Strain…

  28. February 23, 2009 10:23 pm

    I said yes to confessions of a former child but haven’t received it yet. I hope it’s coming!

  29. February 23, 2009 11:02 pm

    I got The Strain too! I can’t wait to get started on that one.

  30. February 23, 2009 11:33 pm

    Retail Anarchy certainly caught my eye Kathy! I’m really curious on that one now.

    Retail Anarchy sounds intriguing. Happy reading!

  32. February 24, 2009 2:31 am

    I never thought of posting the books I get in the mail on my blog, but I’ve noticed a lot of people are doing that now. I guess I’ll start keeping track and post them next week!

  33. February 24, 2009 8:42 am

    I was just on the retail anarchy website and I can’t stop laughing. Check out this post for example:

    Retail Anarchy sounds intersting, the blog is hysterical.

  35. February 24, 2009 10:17 pm

    I’ll have to check out the Retail Anarchy blog. As usual, you have an interesting mix of books, Kathy!

  36. February 25, 2009 10:17 am

    These sound interesting. I’m looking forward to your reviews. Hope you enjoy them!


  37. February 25, 2009 10:00 pm

    The Local News sounds good – I will have to watch for that one. I just got The Strain this week so it will be on my list on Monday. It sounds good too!

  38. February 27, 2009 3:17 pm

    Great titles! I keep hearing about Local News. I look forward to reading the reviews. Enjoy!
