A Week of Treasures

Otherwise known as loot. Between the books I mailed back from BEA, and the books that arrived in the mail this week, I have one week's worth of treasure that is unbelievable.

It's obvious I'm not going to be able to read everything here. So, here's just a quick list so you have a heads-up as to what's coming out. If a title doesn't have a date after it, it's already been released, or will be released this month.

So, in no particular order, here are the books that arrived this week. Anything here that appeals to you?

52 books this week. If you're like me, and never want to be without a book, this is great! Any books here that you're waiting to read?

PERSONAL NOTE - I won't be running a contest this week, and the next one will start during the work week. I have a few trips to make this week, one for work, and one with family, and it makes it difficult to host the contest. I hope you'll still stop by to read with me!

I have to smile Lesa. Everytime I think that maybe there are too many books entering my house all I have to do is take a look at your blog and I'm reassured.

That's one wonderful list of books you have there. Some I've read, some I'm looking forward to and most are completely new to me. I hope you'll enjoy them.

Lesa said...

I'm glad you're smiling when you see that picture, Marleen! You're right. You'll be OK! (smile) And, so will I because I have all those wonderful books!

Nancy said...

So many books, Lesa! I salivate just reading the list. I'm looking forward to hearing your favorites among them. Such great reading in the months ahead! Thanks for all your reviews; I do pay attention to them and love your recommendations.

Pat said...

Several good books to look forward too this summer. :-
Wonder who won the books in June 7th giveaway??

Charlotte said...

Would love to have that many books coming to my house. It would be such a wonderful treat for me. I am a lover of books, more is never enough.

Lesa said...

Thanks, Everyone! And, Charlotte? You're right. More is never enough.

Pat, I'm sorry. I mailed the books on Saturday, and I delete the email addresses afterward. I never keep addresses after the book goes in the mail, and I couldn't tell you who the winners are. But, there were three winners!

Beth Hoffman said...

Wow, Lesa ... what a haul! Happy reading to you, my friend. I hope you and the kitties are having a lovely Sunday!

TheLostWitch said...

Wow! What an amazing haul! Thanks for picking up THE WITCH OF LITTLE ITALY! She's so pretty over there! XO Suzanne Palmieri (Hayes).

Reine said...

Lesa... wow! A stunning take!

My eyes were immediately directed to HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN by Louise Penny… I cannot wait for that one to come out! Carolyn Hart's BRAVE HEARTS! There just aren't enough exclamation points to express my feeling.

You had a great time. I can tell.

Lesa said...

Isn't this wonderful? Wish I had time to spend at home reading. Busy month ahead, though.

You are definitely going to need more bookcases!! Lucky duck....

Have fun and be safe!
It's HOT here but we're off to hear Craig Johnson at the PP. He will help us 'feel' cool.
