I think these are going to have get stacked on the floor beside my bookshelves!


  1. I live in Agee's hometown, where A DEATH in THE FAMILY is set. And of course, anything Wodehouse gets my vote.

    1. Kelly, my mom's family is from just north of you! Mom lived there for many years when my boys were little, in LaFollette. Love the area!

    2. I used to do dinner theatre in LaFollette. Very familiar with the area.

  2. You got a lot of variety in your books there. I hope you like In the Woods; I liked it a lot but it is long... Introducing Garret, P.I. looks good. I am hoping my son has the first book in that series. I want to try it. Have fun with all those books.

  3. Love the library haul. Dave and I attended a library book sale the other day and he thought it was all trash. He just doesn't know how to find the gems. :)
