Books and more books, delivered to my doorstep, are the main reason I blog about books. Of course, they arrive carefully packaged, in envelopes and boxes, but often they're left at the front door, greeting me as I return home. Below are the details about the origin of each book pictured above.
The Paper Garden by Molly Peacock and I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits arrived from the publishers for upcoming TLC book tours. I won three of these books, A Creed in Stone Creek by Linda Lael Miller on Kristin's blog, Always With a Book, The Rebel Wife by Taylor M. Polites on Kathy's blog, BermudaOnion's Weblog, and The Quaker State Affair by Dan Romain on Naida's blog, the bookworm. Additionally, I just found out that I won another book, I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith, on Vivienne's blog, Serendipity Reviews (I'm on a roll!). I ordered Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult from a used bookseller on Amazon, which I'll read for The Jodi Picoult Project, a reading challenge I created because I wanted to read more novels by this prolific author. (There's a plethora of links in this paragraph!)
