    That’s a nice stack of books – I have Crossing Washington Square on my tbr list. Enjoy!

  2. December 21, 2009 7:26 am

    What a fruitful week you’ve had! There are a couple there I have on my list. Happy reading!

  3. December 21, 2009 7:37 am

    oh dear. the books here were all the books that I bought for Christmas. I struggle to find reading time but have carved out some time for Julian Barnes’ Nothing to be frightened of, which is extraordinary.

    What a great haul! Happy reading.

  5. December 21, 2009 7:49 am

    No Fallen yet? Well darn it should be there this week I hope!

    Great stash this week! I hope you enjoy Imperial Cruise. I have an arc of Lonely Harts Club to read for this month as well. 🙂

    Great stack of books for some holiday reading 🙂

    I am anxious to read your review of Crossing Washington Square.

  8. December 21, 2009 8:16 am

    Wow! You had a great week! I read the Marilyn Monroe one when I was in college (I think that was the same one.)

  9. December 21, 2009 8:37 am

    Happy reading this week. Looks like you got another big batch in, and yay to bookmarks!

    Looking forward to your thoughts on Confections of a Master Baker.

    Nice variety of books! Replacement Child especially leaped out to me. When I read the synopsis on Amazon it sounds like a heartbreaking, but powerful memoir.

    Enjoy your books!

    Looks like a wonderful stack of good reads. This might keep you busy for a few days. The Imperial Cruise keeps popping up and it’s intriguing me.

    Have a wonderful week and enjoy all your new books.

  12. December 21, 2009 8:44 am

    great week Kathy. I’m curious about the Marilyn Monroe book. enjoy them all.

  13. December 21, 2009 8:47 am

    I look forward to reading your thoughts on the Sedaris audio.

  14. December 21, 2009 9:13 am

    Most of my arrivals last week were Christmas gifts, so they’re either unopened or wrapped as gifts to other people 😛

    What a great stack. Enjoy them. I got nothing this week, which is just as well.

    Ooh, very nice mailbox this week! I really want to get my hands on the new Sedaris, so I hope you enjoy it. I am also interested in your reaction to The Replacement Child, it was a very heartfelt read. I am also going to be joining in on the discussion for Keeping the Feast, so it will be very cool to get to discuss it with you!

  36. December 21, 2009 4:21 pm

    What a great stack! I got my stack on Saturday from the Hachette giveaway and then just got another box from Amazon…it’s a good mailbox week for us all!

  37. December 21, 2009 4:23 pm

    I want to read Marilyn Monroe and the Replacement Child looks good.

  38. December 21, 2009 4:58 pm

    I have The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe on my TBR list, I read good reviews of it!

  39. December 21, 2009 6:29 pm

    I’m loving your mailbox 🙂

  40. December 21, 2009 7:49 pm

    Have I already told you how jealous I am that you got to listen to the new David Sedaris? I’m as green as the Grinch!

    It is Christmas madness here – hope all is good with you! Susan

  41. December 21, 2009 7:59 pm

  43. December 21, 2009 9:04 pm

    You had a great week! Enjoy your books!

  44. December 21, 2009 9:24 pm
