a little bit of blame

Well, here it is Tuesday already, and I haven't posted last week's point-earners.

A trip to the library netted me:

*Panic in Level 4 by Richard Preston (I've wanted to get a hold of this one since I first heard it was coming out. And it fits right in with this infectious disease kick I've been on lately.)

*Earth: The Sequel by Fred Krupp and Miriam Horn

*Sonny's House of Spies by George Ella Lyon (I knew I had to read this book after reading Medbie's fabulous review. In fact, I was at the library and had it in hand about an hour after reading her review! So, point for Medbie!)

And a trip to B&N sent me home with:

*The Dress Lodger by Sheri Holman (I first wrote this title on my wish list back in January, when I read about it in Alice in Sunderland.)

*Crow Lake by Mary Lawson. From the sounds of it, I may be the only person unfamiliar with this book, but when I read Stephanie's beautiful review, I absolutely knew I had to have it. Of course, when I'll actually get it read it a whole separate question. Anyway, point for Stephanie!)

It sounds like you have stocked up for some good reading. I've been reading the same book for about two weeks now. :) I am planning my second trip to the library this week though :)

take care,

I'm unfamiliar with Crow Lake, too!

A friend loaned me her copy of The Dress Lodger loooong ago. Still haven't gotten to it though it looked very interesting.

Stephanie said...

Oh...yeah for Crow Lake!! It was a surprising read for me. Very, very good! I hope you like it (if you ever get around to reading it!!)

I read a book about an ebola scare by Richard Preston, a few years ago. Can't remember the name of it, but I need to look for more of his. I have a thing for disease books, too. Crow Lake is on my shelf. I'm hoping to read it for the Canadian challenge, but it's so big I might have to just use it as a booster seat, instead.

Debi, I just posted a photo of some books with a little decoration I think you'll like. Please peek in!
