Mondays: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books after a tour, she is hosting it  on her Mailbox Monday blog for the month of November 2011.

My friend gifted me the following three books:



The Diplomat's Wife by Pam Jenoff
The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff
A Foreign Affair by Caro Peacock

I also downloaded free kindle editions from Amazon. You can check those out for NOOK too. Have fun looking out for interesting titles at Pixel of Ink. (I have subscribed it on my Google Reader). I downloaded the following 8 free e-books:

Twas The Night 
Surrender the Wind 
A Regency Holiday
Open Season (Joe Gunther Mysteries)
Mad Money (Madeline Carter)
Entangled
Mary's Son: A Tale of Christmas
The God's Wife 

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. I managed to read a few  e-books via my kindle on PC on my laptop! I finished the following:

the best of me by Nicholas Sparks

Will you be buying books for the holidays, this year? If so, for whom, and why?

No, I am buying books for anyone. Not even for myself...In fact I am giving away some of what I own!

I loved both Pam Jenoff books! A friend recommended them to me and I was expecting to really not like them at all. I read them and now recommend them all the time! I hope you enjoy them!

Enjoy your books. If it weren't for the audio books we listened to while stuck in holiday traffic, I wouldn't have gotten much read this week. Please come see what we've read.
