Monday: Books in the Mail

Last week was very productive for me. My mailbox saw only a little action, but wonderful gifts did it bring. One Review Copy, the sequel to a book I read a while ago and am really looking forward to and I won (yeah!) a book; one I've been coveting since the good reviews started pouring with its arc release late last year.

So only 1 book gets added to my ARC pile and I read and reviewed 4 ARCs last week which means my pile is actually 3 books smaller. I think I'm having a productive summer with my ARCs. One of those ARCs I read was actually from the small pile of backlog from 2008 that I haven't got to yet. Yeah me! I think it's time to look at stats again. Last time I did this I had read 58% of my ARCs which was up 6% from the last count. OK let's do the math. Woohoo! I've now read 63% of the ARCs in my possession for this year making that an increase of 5%. To see the ever growing yet continually shrinking mighty ARC tbr list take a look for yourself.

The Review Copy from Random House Canada which hits the stores tomorrow:

And I was delighted to win this hardcover book over at Stone Soup. Thanks Katrina!
