Matrimony by Joshua Henkin (contest win from Book Escape...thanks Nicole and Joshua!)

From the library sale for a total of $3 (I was amazed to find so many books dealing in some way with WWII. Thanks, Serena, for helping me scan the stacks!)

Happy reading!

Matrimony is in my TBR pile, too.

I got a copy of Connie Arnold's book of poetry, "Beautiful Moments of Joy & Peace." I don't read a lot of poetry anthologies, but Connie's stuff is good enough to get me to read a whole book of poetry at one time.

Michele at Reader's Respite said...

I love, love, love War and Remembrance (and Wouk's other books as well, like Marjorie Morningstar). Library sales are great, aren't they?

Anna said...

Bermudaonion: Looking forward to your review!

Marvin: I've never heard of Connie Anthony, but I'll have to check out her work. Thanks for the recommendation!

Michele: I'm so glad to hear you liked the book. At over a 1,000 pages, I was a bit worried about it. Library sales rock!

Serena said...

These are the ones I have, but I got them ages ago...They will get read!

Conscience Point by Erica Abeel (from Library Thing)

The Sighing of the Winter Trees by Laura Grossman (from the author for a virtual book tour next month)

Matrimony by Joshua Henkin

Anna said...

Serena: Great! More books for us to discuss!

Trish said...

Yikes--the only one I've heard of and read is Matrimony...! Look forward to hearing what you think of these.

Shana said...

Anna, what a haul. I'm quite envious of those library book sale finds in particular!

I really want to read Wouk. Can't wait to see what you think!

Thank you for stopping by the 'mailbox' this week. 'Matrimony' is certainly making the rounds of the book blogs.

Dawn said...

What a great week of new books!

I hit a used book sale, too. I'll post about it 10/31 in my Friday Finds (I showed great restraint, and only bought 6 books ... at 50 cents each! :) )

Bookfool said...

I've missed a Paul Watkins book??!! Oh, oh, must find! Thanks for mentioning that one.

Dar said...

Wow, you have a lot of books there. I have Matrimony too. I'll be watching for your reviews of the books dealing with WWII- I always find those interesting.

Anna said...

Trish: I hadn't heard of the books I found at the library sale, so I don't know what to expect!

Shana: I'm intrigued by the Wouk book, but it's over 1,000 pages. I have no idea when I'll get a chance for that one!

Marcia: It certainly is!

Dawn: 6 books at 50 cents! You went all out! ;)

Bookfool: I take it your a fan of his. I've never heard of him. I'm hoping it's good.

Dar: They might take me awhile, but I'll tackle them eventually!
