This meme is hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

I had a good week with four review books on my doorstep.


  1. Fireworks over Toccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff (from St. Martin's Press)
  2. The Overnight Socialite by Bridie Clark (from FSB)
  3. The Lumby Lines by Gail Fraser (from FSB)
  4. Glorious by Bernice L. McFadden (from Akashic Books)
See what others have bought over the last week!
