Mailbox Monday -- March 22

The weekend is over, and while that's always a bit depressing, at least we have Mailbox Monday, the weekly meme hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page -- where book lovers talk about the titles they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained during the past week.  Here's what I added to my shelves:



Read, Remember, Recommend: A Reading Journal for Book Lovers by Rachelle Rogers Knight, from Sourcebooks





The Swimming Pool by Holly LeCraw, from Doubleday






Every Last One by Anna Quindlen, from Random House






How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly by Connie May Fowler, from Hachette and LibraryThing Early Reviewers







The Wives of Henry Oades by Johanna Moran, from Serena (Thanks!)



What books did you add to your shelves recently?

The Anna Quindlen book looks like a good one. I loved her One True Thing (and its not a bad movie either).
