So the giant box of books has arrived from my trip to see Debi and it’s um…a little ridiculous :p There are THIRTY TWO new books that walked into the house today. With the list being that long, I’m not going to post cover pictures and give explanations for each one. There is no explanation except for me not having restraint :p I’m just going to list the books I bought and who gets the points.

  1. most of these I never heard of so they will be very new to me when you do reviews!.. gads 32 chris. did your mother cringe when the box arrived?? heh.

  2. If you’d still been here yesterday that pile would be even bigger–Rich and I went back to Borders for its final week. The result–well, you can imagine. And yeah, I totally wish you’d been here, even though we would have had to find a bigger box. πŸ˜‰

  3. Oh my gosh The Egypt Game was my absolute favorite book as a kid!!!!!

  4. Nothing like a great box of books! I’ve written a few of these down for myself. πŸ™‚

  5. Wow, that’s a lot of books. And no points for me. I am really good (bad?) at this Bad Bloggers thing. lol

  6. Holy crap! That’s an AWESOME haul! I just finished Tolstoy and the Purple Chair and hope you like it as much as I did. πŸ™‚

  7. Surely, Debi should get the unassigned points, by default for encouraging you! πŸ˜‰

  8. Squeeeee for Beekeeper’s Apprentice and Uncle Tungsten!!! Two of my fave authors, and Uncle Tungsten is what made me fall in lurve with Sacks (seriously, I would marry him if he wanted me to).

    ❀ I hope you enjoy them.
