A box of books!

I just got a box of books from my mom. She buys them, reads them, and sends them to me. So now I have a huge TBR pile and I'm pretty excited.
I've been meaning to read Doug's book and I will, as soon as I get back from Germany. The conference means I've been a bit frazzled lately. I'm leaving the house, dogs, and daughter with number two son, who (at 20) is very responsible and a good cook. But I felt I had to get everything in order to he didn't have a pile of laundry staring at him and dust bunnies under all the furniture. So I cleaned and laundered and shopped, and then packed. (For only 3 days, it's not like last year when I went to RT for a whole week and really packed, lol).
Anyhow, I'm bringing 'Wicked' with me to read on the plane, and then I can't wait to get back and read the other books.
Turning Angel
Dark Harbor
A Man Without a Country
We Need to Talk about Kevin
To the Power of Three
The Lighthouse
The Rottweiler
Dead as a Doornail
Books just make me happy!

I've heard interesting things about "Kevin". Seems it's a real love-it-or-hate-it kind of book.

Haven't read it myself, but I'll be interested to hear your thoughts!

I love "The Man Without a Country" and many of the others you listed. Have a good time at the Germany convention and in judging the contest.

Oh, and btw, ever come over to Blighty? We're right across the Channel!

I don't know what it is with me at the moment - but I can't seem to read anything :o( My interest in everything is low, but I'm hoping the weather improving will give me a hefty shove in the right direction :o)
