  2. My oh my that's a great selection of books, and what a great win!
    Mr. Bishop and the actress sounds particularly interesting to me, and the bookswap books are sort of timely for today, Washington's Birthday :)
    Hope you enjoy them all.

  3. Woe, winning streak :D I hope you will enjoy M Tussaud

  4. You got Madame Tussaud! I was eyeballing this in B&N the other day but promised myself no hardcovers this year. The last 2 look really interesting also. Happy reading!

  8. I know, seriously! I've been home sick for the last week and just when my post-Xmas blues really set in, I got this glut of awesome books!!

  9. The Beauty Of Humanity Movement is a book I had not heard of until you posted this. I looked it up and found out it is set in Vietnam. This one goes onto my must-read list, thank you!
