One of the perks of being a book blogger is being privy to a multitude of book giveaways. Recently I won two books, South of Broad by Pat Conroy on Heather's blog, Raging Bibliomania, and A Twist of Orchids by Michelle Wan on Becky's blog, No More Grumpy Bookseller. Heather and Becky both have terrific book blogs that I enjoy visiting.
Last week I ventured into Barnes & Noble to look for a couple of gifts, and I couldn't resist getting one book for myself, How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster. I didn't intend to get myself any books, but when I picked this one up and skimmed a few pages it was too interesting to leave behind. This book may nudge my reviews into some new directions, and although it may take me a while to get to it I'm certain that I will.
The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday is one of my favorite memes, where readers share the books they've recently acquired. What books arrived in your home recently, by mail or from elsewhere?
