Marica at the Printed Page hosts this weekly meme where book bloggers tell you what showed up in their mailboxes. Stop by and check out some new (and old) blogs.
The summer deluge of books is starting to slow, which is a good thing since school starts today and my reading time will now be interrupted by reading to my little one and helping the big ones with homework. I got these books this week: Piece de Resistance, which is the third book in a series about a young American woman who becomes a French chef. I have the second, Bon Appetit sitting in my room; guess its time to move it closer to the top of the stack. Piece de Resistance is for a First Wildcard tour. I got two other books via First Wildcard: The Great Christmas Bowl which is about one mother's hilarious quest to serve up the perfect holiday and Cottonwood Whispers which is a sequel to Fireflies in December. The nice folks at Hatchette sent me Cult Insanity which is about polygamists. From the Catholic Company I got Fire of God's Love: 120 Reflections on the Eucharist, which went with me to adoration Friday nite.
