In My Mailbox: Santa Edition


This is a special edition of In My Mailbox.  I am including the books that Santa brought to my house this year, as well as the books we got from the library, book swaps, and of course, the books I received for review.
This is a weekly meme started by The Story Siren, who was inspired by an idea from Pop Culture Junkie. The idea is to share books I receive for review, books I purchase and books I borrow from the library, as well as find out what other readers are receiving, purchasing and borrowing!

This goes hand in hand with the It's Monday, What Are You Reading? meme. Now, not only will you see what I'm reading, but what books are waiting on my bookshelf too.

Pat Conroy's My Reading Life is a gift I gave to myself.  Merry Christmas to me!
