THE LOST SUMMER OF LOUISA MAY ALCOTT
by Kelly O'Connor McNees

for review from G.P. Putnam/Riverhead Books

I'LL MATURE WHEN I'M DEAD
by Dave Barry

for review  - and I've already sampled it -- It's hilarious!



REPORTING AT WIT'S END
by St. Clair McKelway

for review from Bloomsbury





SWEATER QUEST:
My Year of Knitting Dangerously
by Adrienne Martinni

for review from The Free Press


I used a little "found money" and ordered some books recently.
Here's what I picked and why:


SEA OF POPPIES
by Amitav Ghosh

for the South Asian Authors Challenge





THE CAPE ANN
by Faith Sullivan

When I go on a "spree" I try to buy at least one new-to-me book. The narrarator of this book is six, and I like stories told from a child's point of view.




MOON WOMEN
by Pamela Duncan

This has been on my Wish List for years and it was time to bring it home.



THE CATS OF ROXVILLE STATION
by Jean Craighead George

To read to/with the kids - we love cats!




ROSES
by Leila Meacham

For my mom - and she's already read it and loved it!

Lost Summer is getting a lot of attention. I got a copy and I saw it was on the LibraryThing Early Reviewer list this month -- there are a lot of review copies floating around!
