In the last two days five new books have found their way into my house thanks to my lovely mail carrier (I for one can safely say I do my part to keep the US Postal Service in business!):
The first package arrived yesterday from The Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, Vermont, the site of the first of three Booktopia events this year. It contained three books by authors attending the event (and all are signed!):
Crossing the Borders of Time by Leslie Maitland
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
The Great Northern Express by Howard Frank Mosher
Booktopia Vermont sounded like an amazing time (read firsthand accounts here and here, and listen to Books on the Nightstand’s podcast of part of the night of authors event here) and I am now that much more excited for Booktopia in Oxford, Mississippi.
The second package arrived today from William Morrow and Company, with two Advance Reader’s Copies for review:
The Voluntourist by Ken Budd
Saving Ruth by Zoe Fishman
It is a cool, rainy, bleak day here today – perfect weather to curl up with one of these books and read the day away.
Are any of these books on your to-read list?
