I am so excited! You know the HUGE summer reads giveaway that Hachette Book Group USA has been running on various bloggers' websites? Well, I recently found out from Queenie D at Book-Club-Queen that I won -- that's 14 new books! I can barely wait to get my hands on that big box! You will be hearing lots more about these books as I read and review them in the next few months!

I also received a really neat little package from Penguin Group (USA) last week! I figured it was a book (and it was, THE LAST SUMMER OF YOU AND ME), but I was so surprised to receive a matching beach towel too! Isn't it the little things in life that mean so much?
And another one...I returned home from my mini-vacation to Washington D.C. to a message from Jocelyn at BookFinds telling me that I won a copy of GARGOYLE. I am dying to read this book since I've seen so many differing opinions on it.
