Sunday Salon-Book Growths

In the past 24 hours, my TBR list has grown as well as my book collection! It's been quite eventful!

TBR List

I hung out at barnes and Noble for about a half hour while the rest of my family was looking at video games. I whipped out my trusty notecards and got to work, browsing the shelves for titles to add to my TBR list, and here is what I came up with:

Things I Want My Daughters To Know by Elizabeth Noble: A mother knows that she will die soon and writes letters to her daughters
Suite Francaise by Ireme Nemirovsky: While looking at this book in the store, I thought it would be a good WW2 story, but after reading all the things the Barnes and Noble website has to say about it, this is going towards the top of my list to read next!
The Last Pope by David Osborn: Looks like this may be a lot like Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. I'm in the mood for a good thriller like that right now!
Sixteen by Megan McCafferty: A collection of short stories about sweet sixteens. Hope this book won't be as disappointing as my sweet sixteen!
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith: This is Rory's Book Club's March selection. I wasn't going to read it because of all the other reading I have to do this month, but after reading the first page, I didn't want to put it down.


For some unknown reason, my church is giving away all the books in their "library." Score!

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
The Pilgrims Progress (A very pretty version too!)
My Utmost for his Highest
Titanic Warning (Using the Titanic as a religious metaphor)
My dad also got me a huge Biblical commentary for when I go to college. It is the biggest book I've ever held or owned!

I Capture the Castle is an awesome book!
