Weekly Wrap 021311

The first part of this feature is inspired by The Story Siren's "In My Mailbox" posts.  Let me show you the books that I've come across in one way or another for the past week. 

Dreams of a Dark Warrior (Immortals After Dark Series, Book 9)  Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing  Elizabeth I: A Novel
Thank you Gallery, Hachette and Pump Up Your Books


Faefever: The Fever Series   Suzanne Collins'sThe Hunger Games (Hardcover)(2008)
Thank you to Brooke at Brooke Reviews
(this is book 2 & 3 I chose with my giftcode prize)

Figures in Silk: A Novel The Iron Daughter (Harlequin Teen) 
I got one of those $20 Giftcards for $10 to B&N through Groupon
Yes - I'm still on a book buying ban - but I fell off the wagon, again.

Here And Then (Bestselling Author Collection) Spider Bones: A Novel (Temperance Brennan Novels)  The Lost Army of Cambyses  The Weekend Garden Guide: Work-Saving Ways to a Beautiful Backyard
These were a quarter each at your hospice thrift store - even the hardbacks.
I figure I'm supporting an excellent cause as well as feeding my habit - on the cheap.

Chainfire: Chainfire Trilogy, Part 1 (Sword of Truth, Book 9) Phantom: Chainfire Trilogy, Part 2 (Sword of Truth, Book 10) Confessor (Sword of Truth)
These were also a quarter apiece AND FOR THE HUBBY. 
He's completely engrossed in the series.
Plus I have to find things for him to justify my own indulgences :)

The Pillars of Creation (Sword of Truth, Book 7)
for the HUBBY


The second part of this post is to show you what happened here in the last week and give you an idea of what is scheduled (so far) for next week.
