  1. Great book haul.....looking forward to seeing your reviews, especially for the second book in the Marie Antoinette series.

  2. Amazing books! the Frank delaney caught my eye.

  4. I can't wait to read the Juliet Grey book. And don't you just love library sales?!? Hope you enjoy The Little Giant of Aberdeen County as much as I did, and I'm jealous about the Frank Delaney book.

  5. I'm so excited to see The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon in your mailbox this week! he's one of my fav authors ever! If you've never read The Shadow of the Wind by him be sure to check that out as well, I liked it even more than Angel's Game but both are fantastic! He's got another one coming out later this year that has characters from both books in it that I am DYING to get my hands on!

    I'm SO envious you have a copy of Wentworth Hall to read, I'm pining away to read that one! It looks so great, unfortunately even if I bought a copy today I couldn't read it right away :D

    Thanks so much for dropping by my blog!

  6. Wow, you found some good ones at the FOL sale!

  7. Roots is SUCH a good book. And I really really want to read "How Scots Invented the Modern World". I've had my eye on it for a while but haven't bought it yet. Good list!
