Booksie's Shelves, May 2, 2015

It's hard to believe April is over and May is here.  The azeleas are about through blooming and the trees are all full of new foliage.  School is about over the year with my daughter finishing her junior year of high school.  Next year will be taken up with college applications and hopefully acceptances!

I attended a book sale this past week with a friend.  I was pretty restrained and only bought five books.  Of course, that is probably less due to my restraint and more to the fact that with over seven thousand books in the house, I had a pretty high percentage of the books offered already!

Here's what's come through the door lately:

1.  Bridge Of Sighs, Richard Russo, literary fiction, bought at book sale
2.  Paris, Edward Rutherfurd, historical fiction, bought at book sale
3.  Dead End Gene Pool, Wendy Burden, memoir, bought at book sale
4.  The Babes In The Wood, Ruth Rendell, mystery, bought at book sale
5.  My Losing Season, Pat Conroy, memoir, bought at book sale
6.  Dry Bones, Craig Johnson, mystery, sent by publisher
7.  Grace Keepers, Kirsty Logan, literary fiction, sent by publisher
8.  The Abduction Of Smith And Smith, Rashad Harrison, historical fiction, sent for book tour
9.  Huntress Moon, Alexandra Sokoloff, mystery, sent by author
10.  Blood Moon, Alexandra Sokoloff, mystery, sent by author
11.  The Silver Linings, Matthew Quick, literary fiction, purchased
12.  The Yonahlossee Riding Camp For Girls, Anton Disclafani, literary fiction, purchased

14.  Bourbon Empire, Reid Mitenbuler, nonfiction, sent by publisher
