|Their 65th Wedding Ann in 2010|
In anticipation, I am shipping home a box of books. Why? Two reasons. First, the airlines weight restrictions on luggage. That leads me to the second: most of the books are either trade paperbacks or hardcovers. So, you may ask, why not go the the library there or put them on my Kindle? Answer? I am fortunate to receive many Advanced Readers Copies and/or new books from the authors themselves. So, what am I sending? [Yes, living alone not only causes you to talk to yourself, but you even interview yourself on your blog. Is that a problem?]
Here is the list of books being sent:
- Hunting Sweetie Rose by Jack Fredrickson - love him
- I am Half Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley- who knew he was writing a Flavia Christmas story
- The Sleeping Partner by Madeleine Robins - finally a new historical mystery in the Sarah Tolerance series
- Kill My Darling by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - I bought directly from her a UK, signed copy dated even before it's official release date and it's not released here until Feb. 2012 -- Cool!!
- Burial at Sea by Charles Finch - I love historical mysteries
- Mercury's Rise - Ann Parker - It's so nice to have historical mysteries set in 1800s Colorado; and she writes them so well. I love her covers.
- Rock and Roll Never Forgets by Deborah Grabian - I've been meaning to read this for the longest time.
There are many others I want to take, but I'll only be there a week, after all. Now, what should I put on my Kindle for travel time? Hello, Amazon.
What about you? Are you traveling this month? If so, what books are you taking?
