I only received a couple of books in my actual mailbox this week, both from Penguin Canada:
Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer by Novella Carpenter
The Opposite of Love by Julie Buxbaum
I also met up with Cindy, Donna and Tina yesterday for our monthly bloggers’ meet-up and scored several more books as well as some BEA loot! (Thank you thank you!)
From Tina I got First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria by Eve Brown-Waite and Best Intentions by Emily Listfield, while from Cindy I got My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier and Saints in Limbo by River Jordan...
The only one of us to go to BEA this year was Donna (although we’re all hoping to go next year!). She brought us all back tote bags with goodies. Mine was from the Strand and contained several bookmarks, sticky notes, a pen from New Horizon Press, a Michelin Guide suitcase tag, a little bag of sunflower seeds (which were given out to promote a young readers book) and an ARC of When Autumn Leaves by Amy Foster, which will be published in October. Also included in the picture below are A Book Lover’s Companion, courtesy of Tina, as well as Cindy’s and Donna’s new business cards!
