  1. So many books! I just read the Chaperone. It was our book club selection for the month. It was very good. Enjoy your books!

  2. Wow! That's a lot of books! I hope you really enjoy the Elisabeth Storrs book. I read it earlier this year and liked it! So many other books I could comment on too!

  3. The type of haul I dream of...I also couldn't resist hitting up the Bookcloseouts sale, though I had to show much restraint in the amount I purchased. Happy reading!
