A big thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for hosting this fun meme.   Check out her blog to see what everyone else got last week or to play along.  This is what I found in my mailbox last week:

    I am really looking forward to reading some of the same books you received!

    I hope that you enjoy Snow Flower and the Secret Fan as much as I did. It’s one of my favorite books.
    I also got Saffron Dreams and the gorgeous bookmark from Jennifer’s Bookmark It club.

    I couldn’t do this meme – when new books arrive I’ve taken to running off and distributing them all over to look more inconspicuous so my husband doesn’t have me committed!

    I really liked Shanghai Girls so I will be interested to hear how her previous book is.

    I haven’t read any of these books except for “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” – and I loved it! I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

    Kathy, you got some really good books. We have nothing in common this past week.

    The book mark is really nice. Is it hand made?

    I have my MM posted here:

    I have Snow Flower on Mt. TBR. One of these days, I’m going to have to have a Lisa See readathon and read through the three I have.

    Fun haul you got 🙂

    i really enjoyed precious and found the writing to be almost poetic! enjoy. 🙂

  26. June 22, 2009 9:48 pm

    New books! I’ll be curious to read your thoughts on Apples and Oranges, Kathy. I read that one last year. Saffron Dreams is on my must read list. I got a copy in the mail this past weekend. Enjoy!

  27. June 22, 2009 10:40 pm

    Those all look wonderful and that bookmark is gorgeous!!! Enjoy 🙂

  28. June 23, 2009 1:07 pm

    Great stuff. I’m hoping to read Burnt Shadows one of these days.

  29. June 23, 2009 9:02 pm

    You are lucky person to get Burnt Shadows I had requested a ARC from picador. I assume that they have enought reviewers because I never heard from them. Can’t wait to see what you think of it. I heard great things about this one.
    Take Care, and keep cool!!

    I got Saffron Dreams and the Disappearance of Irene Santos this week, too. Both look good, don’t they? Happy reading!

    I’m looking forward to your thoughts on Precious especially. You got a lot of great books, and I hope you enjoy them.
