Hooray for amazing book exchanges, and incredibly wonderful virtual friends sending incredible books. I cannot WAIT to dig into these two books! Rebecca Gulka, you lovely tropical fish, I cannot thank you enough! And, as always, many thanks to the remarkable FaintingViolet for her generosity of spirit setting this all up (and dealing with my annoying questions). Hugs to you all!
This is an extremely late, but huge thank you to The Chancellor for the book exchange goodies! I’ve had The Day the World Came to Town on my TBR list ever since reading a review of it right here on CBR. I work in aviation, and everybody who was here on 9/11 talks about how absolutely chaotic the logistics of that was. I am really excited to read this one.

Thank you again to borisanne, I know you mentioned some logistical issues (I will definitely pick up Educated!) but it […]
Thank you, CoffeeShopReader! I’ve been meaning to read March ever since I saw John Lewis speak at LA Review of Books in the spring. And I will be able to get all the NightVale references once I read that one. I love tea too and excited to try them all. 🙂
I received The Secret Heart in the Cannonball Book Exchange. It was selected for me by my “romance twin“, Beth Ellen, the fellow reader with whom I most often agree on books. It was interesting. From Amazon: Adam, Earl of Bexley, lives to work. His only relief is the sordid savagery of bare-knuckle boxing.
