Christmas in July

I was getting worried because my TBR pile was getting pretty low. Well, my mom called me this afternoon to say a co-worker brought in some books she was getting rid of and did I want any? Hells yeah!!!

Here's what I got:

Nora Roberts - Jewels of the Sun and High Noon

Mary Lynn Baxter - A Day in April

Laura Levine - Killer Blonde

Debbie Macomber - Country Brides

Karen Robards - Ghost Moon

Brenda Joyce - The Third Heiress

Anne Avery - Fire & Ice

Catherine Coulter - The Deception

Julie Garwood - The Secret

William Goldman - The Princess Bride

Now, I've seen the movie The Princess Bride but never read the book. I've read The Secret but it was a loaner and I'm thrilled I can now re-read it as I wish. I know who Nora Roberts is but I've not read any of her books, and I don't know any of the other authors.
Remember when you were a kid and you'd go to the dentist and he'd have the little treasure chest that, if you were good, you could pick ONE thing from the box? And you could never decide what one thing you wanted? Yeah, picking the first book I want to read is kind of like that. What to pick? Which one? This one? Or that one? Is it going to be good or will this be a book I fall in love with? The anticipation builds....


  1. The Princess Bride??? OoOoOo, share please (when you're finished)!

  2. You get nothing until you give her back the other series that you borrowed!!! (Cow!!!)

  3. Series? You act like I got a box of books. ONE book. ONE!!!

    And no, YOU can't have it back, Major Dad.

    Now, if Patti wants it, that's another thing. My GFF get's what she wants.

  4. How 'bout I trade you for the Princess Bride? Let me guess your answer:

    "As you wish." ;)

  5. Woot! Looks like you got a good haul there Patti!

    Oooo and I see you're reading 'Eve of Destruction'. I have this entire series waiting in the wings. Can't wait to read your thoughts!

    Happy Reading,
