This week has been a busy book week at the old mailbox.I never get this many books in one week! Here's what I received this week:
*Flight of the Falcon by Daphne du Maurier
*Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
*Witchcraft by Clary Croft
*Babymouse: Cupcake Tycoon by Jennifer Holm (for me and the girl)
*The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
*Raven Stole the Moon by Garth Stein
And then I decided to go to the thrift store and bought:
*Kilmeny of the Orchard by L.M. Montgomery
*Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
*Priestess of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Speaking of Princesses... remember my The Princess Bride Readalong starts October 2nd. I hope you've found your copies and are ready to go. I can't wait!
