Thank you to Marcia at The Printed Page for putting on the weekly Mailbox Monday, a place where I discover so many wonderful new books.
Check out her blog and post all the new books you acquired last week.
Well, I had a very exciting week. I went a little crazy ordering books online and spending almost all of my gift cards from Christmas. I also got a couple other books in the mail.
Cheating Death: The Doctors and Medical Miracles that Are Saving Lives Against All Odds by Sanjay Gupta
A contest win from DC Metro Reader
Arcadia Falls by Carol Goodman

And the books that I bought for myself:
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
AND my favorite part of this Mailbox Monday....
The Complete Peanuts 1967-1970 Box Set
I grew up in Santa Rosa, CA...the home of Charles Schultz. One of my favorite Christmas traditions was going to Snoopy on Ice at the Redwood Empire Ice Arena. We went every year until they stopped putting it on after Schultz died and it was one of the hardest traditions for me to let go of. From the comic strip in the newspaper to Snoopy on Ice, Peanuts has always had a special place in my heart. I am so excited to have my first boxed set!
