The book about Thoreau gives me hope. I have a handout for my college students that lists information and I ask them if the information is common knowledge or if they'd have to cite it. Thoreau is on there and most of them have never heard of him. I tell them it's a generational difference. I think most people my age read Thoreau in school.
Nice mailbox, Diane. The Sendak Nutcracker has been a favorite in my house for years!
Nice mix of books! Nutcracker puts me in the mood for Christmas. Enjoy! Here’s my Mailbox Post.
Nice mix....ENJOY all your new reads!!ElizabethSilver's Reviewshttp://silversolara.blogspot.com/2012/11/mailbox-monday-11122012.html
Believe it or not, I've never read a Nelson DeMille book. I keep saying I will but maybe if I had one of his audio books it would be easier. Enjoy your new titles!
Great mailbox...now I'm wanting to start thinking of Christmas! And the James Patterson book looks kind of good. Enjoy!Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST
Enjoy all your new books. A Christmas Home looks interesting. I love reading xmas books around the holidays.
Nice selection, they all appeal to me! I'd love to spend a day with Thoreau on Walden Pond. :)
As a dog lover I would love to read A Christmas Home!Enjoy all your new reads!
You got some great titles there, and I am excited for you! I hope that you enjoy them, and I look forward to hearing what you think about all of them!
My brother loves the James Patterson books - I have to let him know there is a new one out!
Nice diversity, Diane. Enjoy your new reads. Looking forward to your thoughts on DeMille's latest.
Somehow it seems too early for Christmas books for me. Then I look at the calendar and panic. ;-)
Cool mailbox! I am giving away a copy of A Christmas Home tomorrow!
Great stack of books! I am going to look for the Nutcracker book for my permanent shelf. And all the rest have been added to my list as well.
Some nice Christmas reading.http://tributebooksmama.blogspot.com/2012/11/mailbox-monday_12.html
I am a sucker for a book with a dog on the cover and labs are my favorite! ;o).
Enjoy your holiday reads! I've been in the mood to read some myself. Yay for audiobooks too!
I received The Nutcracker, too - it's a family tradition!
Enjoy your books! I'm really intrigued by the one about Thoreau. I've always wondered what it would be like to get away from all of the distractions and go to a place like Walden Pond.
Lovely books! Nutcracker is beautiful, and I am especially interested in the Thoreau book. Great selections, Diane!
Looks like some nice grandkid books there!! Enjoy them!
Fun books! Nelson DeMille is one of the few thriller authors whose writing I really enjoy.
Hey, I got the Greg Kincaid and The Nutcracker too! They both look like great books. You received a bunch of good ones. Enjoy them!
I had a chance to go to Walden Pond a couple years ago. It was such a peaceful place!
So glad I found you via our cat friend Brian. We received two from Crown and currently doing the A Home for Christmas giveaway.
Enjoy the reads!
I finished Nutcracker yesterday, and I loved it. It wasn't a story I had ever read before, and I'm kicking myself for that lack of foresight. I'm getting ready to start on A Christmas Home, so here's hoping we both like it. Hope you are having a great week.
I'd be curious to hear who they picked to narrate The Panther! They'd have to get someone who fits my idea of John Corey -- I'd know if I heard it. I should go check out a sample on Audible to hear it!
I received The Nutcracker too. It's a beautiful book isn't it?
