Fantasy: The Manual of Detection, by Jedediah Berry

I know, I know – that’s a whole lot of books. But wow – it’s going to be a great year for reading in 2009!

Friday Finds is hosted every Friday at Should Be Reading , and it’s a great way to check out other bloggers’ reading finds this week and discover some great books.

Mailbox Monday: A New (to me) Series

mailboxAfter last week’s enormous Mailbox Mondays post, I actually thought I wouldn’t have anything at all to include for today’s post. But as it turns out, I did receive some new books:

Contemporary romance: Sundays at Tiffany’s, by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet, which I won at A Circle of Books. I had this book in my TBR pile, but it was a library copy, so I was very happy to have won this one and return my library copy (which I had already renewed once).

Urban Fantasy: The Kitty Norville series, by Carrie Vaughn, courtesy of Hachette Book Group. I’m very excited about this series – it’s about werewolf/DJ Kitty Norville – and I will be hosting an author interview with Carrie Vaughn here during the book tour that will be hitting the blogosphere sometime near the end of March!

Spirituality: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao, by Wayne Dyer. This book happened to catch my eye while I was out shopping; I’ve been wanting to learn more about the Tao for a while now, and it seemed to me that Dyer’s book would be an easy introduction.

Mailbox Monday is held every week at Marcia’s Printed Page – you can check what other book bloggers have received in their mailbox this past week. I love reading all the posts because I usually end up finding about a new-to-me book to add to my “I want that!” list.
