Every Sunday, we share the books that found their way into our hands and bookshelves. This is a much-belated post as I share my book loot from Valentine’s Day this week, otherwise known as International Book Giving Day, not to mention the awesome titles that Pansing has! There are fewer things in the world better than free books arriving in the mail.
Post-Valentine Book Loot
Because ze husband knows my heart, here are some of the titles I got him to get me (see what I did there?):
Then Come Back: The Lost Neruda Poems by Pablo Neruda and Translated by Forrest Gander, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin, The Broken Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin, The Kingdom Of Gods by N. K. Jemisin. Clearly I love series!
Small Things by Mel Tregonning. I’ve since used this book several times for professional development workshops. Powerful title.
Naturally, my 15 year old got a rose from her father and the graphic novel she has been waiting for: The Walking Dead Compendium Three by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Charlie AdlardStefano Gaudiano.
Taken all together, they do spell L-O-V-E.
Book Loot from Book Friends
Occasionally, I get a few freebies from book friends who are discarding some of their titles or downsizing their collection. Here are a few that fell into my hands:
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner, The Wilds by Julia Elliott, My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, Carve The Mark by Veronica Roth (which unfortunately has a proof copy watermark stamped in every single page. 🙂
