the new TBR pile

I made it to the library last week and checked out three books and then while I was working the book sale on Friday, I managed to find four books I wanted to read.  So, by TBR pile is again a force to be reckoned with on my small nightstand.

Up first is the latest Harry Dresden adventure from Jim Butcher. I adore the Dresden stories and this one is no exception.

Following my foray into a magical version of Chicago, I will travel east to see what is up with Stephanie Plum in Janet Evanovich's latest, "Smokin' Seventeen."  Yep, old Steph is up to trouble as she always is! Fun stuff.

Then I selected a historical fiction novel from John Smollens titled "The Schoolmaster's Daughter." Brand new author to me, so that is always exciting.

From the sale I came home with:
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson - a current book club favorite.
The Devil and Miss Prym by Paulo Coelho - enjoyed The Alchemist so figured, why not.
Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman - decent movie, the book has to be better.
Precious and Fragile Things by Megan Hart - I liked the snowy road featured on the cover.

So, there you have it, what will keep me busy in my 'spare' moments for the next several weeks.

Happy Monday!

I can't even get to my TBR list because of my to-be-graded list!

I'm always amazed how much 'fun' reading you do considering the papers you have to grade!
