    I’m really looking forward to reading The Year of The Flood. The first few pages are interesting so I have high hopes that it will be good. I haven’t heard of any of the others.

  18. July 27, 2009 9:01 am

    Greats books. I will have to check out the Anita Shreve’s one you got.. I loved the last book I read by her.

  20. July 27, 2009 9:29 am

    You have some good books in that pile! I bet Undercover is going to be wonderful! I will be interested in reading your review of this book. 🙂

    Have a great day Kathy!

  21. July 27, 2009 10:42 am

    Very nice collection you got last week. Happy Reading.
    I also go The Year of the Flood and am looking forward to reading.

  22. July 27, 2009 11:33 am

    Kathy: You got some great books…the Anita Shreve and Atwood books caught my eye immediately! Luck you 🙂 I’ll look forward to your reviews 🙂

  23. July 27, 2009 11:38 am

    Great books Kathy. I can’t wait to read Anita Shreve’s new one!

  24. July 27, 2009 11:42 am

    Awesome books. Can’t wait to “hear” what you think of them. Atwood, Shreve and Gillard. Happy Monday.

  25. July 27, 2009 11:49 am

    Wow…another blogger that got A Change in Altitude. Totally envious over here! lol Looks like you got some great books Kathy!

  26. July 27, 2009 11:50 am

    You always seem to have a wonderful list of books! I really like Anita Shreve’s novels but I haven’t read her new one yet. I’m definitely interested in reading Mercury in Retrograde and Year of the Flood!


  27. July 27, 2009 11:51 am

    Wow — what a great group of books! I am hearing really good things about A Change of Attitude, but I shouldn’t try to get a copy because I still haven’t read Testimony! Have a great week.

  28. July 27, 2009 12:24 pm

    Ooh, I’m jealous you got both Stargazing and The Year of Flood! (I requested the latter, so it may still come my way…) I also received A Change in Altitude this week. Enjoy all your books!

  29. July 27, 2009 12:31 pm

    Oh what a nice selection of books this week, I hope that you enjoy reading them! I love signed copies, they are just sooo much more special. 🙂

  30. July 27, 2009 12:53 pm

    Great haul, Kathy! I would so love that Margaret Atwood book! I read Try Fear and thought it was really good. Happy reading!

  31. July 27, 2009 1:04 pm

    Some interesting looking books in there, my eye fell on Star Gazing so gotta check out what it’s about.

  32. July 27, 2009 3:01 pm

    What a great group!!!! I would love to pick up Try Fear. I am going to have to check it out!


  33. July 27, 2009 3:57 pm

    Lots of great reads! I want to grab Undercover soon.

    I totally forgot. I got Mercury in Retrograde, too. enjoy your books.

  35. July 27, 2009 5:03 pm

    I haven’t heard of any of those, except for Mercury in Retrograde (which I got at my library’s ARC giveaway). I can’t wait to read your reviews.

  36. July 27, 2009 6:54 pm

    do you have extra hours in your day?!? how do you find the time to be such a wonderful commentor on a million blogs, author of a million posts, and reader of a million books!? do you sleep? 🙂

  37. July 27, 2009 7:59 pm

    Kathy you got some good books and congrats on all your wins. We have nothing in common this past week.

    Happy reading.

    Loved your comment on Books Upon a Wee One’s shelf. Michael thought it was pretty funny and said “Mommy thats what I do anyways, how did she know i should do that?” LOL

  38. July 27, 2009 10:26 pm

    Quite the mailbox. And they’re all different than mine are!

  39. July 27, 2009 11:55 pm

    I look forward to your review of Heroic Measures! You got a great mailbox this week! 🙂

  40. July 27, 2009 11:56 pm

    Oo! More good ones! Enjoy, Kathy!

  41. July 28, 2009 2:11 am

    I got Mercury in Retrograde too and really look forward to starting it. Your other titles sound so good too! I’ll be adding them to my list, my very long list. Can’t wait to hear what you think about them all. Enjoy!

  42. July 28, 2009 12:29 pm

    I didn’t know that Anita Shreve has a new book. Will look forward to your review. I also got the Atwood book this week.

  43. July 28, 2009 3:14 pm

    So glad you’re back! I missed you on Twitter last week. That’s a great looking stack. I got The Year of the Flood too. I’ve never read Atwood, I’m looking forward to trying her out.

  44. July 28, 2009 3:37 pm

    Hope you enjoy your books! There are a couple here that I’m curious about so I hope you get to read them soon!

  45. July 28, 2009 6:18 pm

    I’ll be curious to hear what you think of James Scott Bell’s book, Try Fear. I found his books on writing — particularly Plot & Structure — invaluable in teaching me how to write a novel. I have it as one of my top 3 must-reads for writers!

  46. July 28, 2009 7:21 pm

    I look forward to your reviews of Star Gazing and Undercover. Both books look really good.

  47. July 28, 2009 10:01 pm

    Really nice collection! I enjoy Anita Shreve and Star Gazing sounds good but I am most envious of Atwoods new book. I am planning on a re-read of Oryx and Crake in preparation for it.

  48. July 29, 2009 10:49 pm

    You are the second person I have seen with the Atwood. I really want to read that!

  49. July 30, 2009 5:14 am

    Oh, lucky! “Mercury in Retrograde”, “The Year of the Flood” and “Undercover” are all book I would love to read! I will be waiting for your reviews!

  50. July 31, 2009 8:01 am

    We have a few of the same books. As always, I’m looking forward to your thoughts.


  51. August 3, 2009 4:11 pm

    My copy of Mercury in Retrograde from Atria came last week as well. I’m looking forward to getting the chance to read it. 🙂
