Notes in the Margin

New galleys are slowly starting to trickle in. 

I received a new children's title called MUSEUM OF THIEVES by Lian Tanner and a beautiful-looking galley called THE ORACLE OF STAMBOUL by Michael David Lukas and MUST YOU GO? : MY LIFE WITH HAROLD PINTER by Antonia Fraser.

A few that should be arriving soon:

THE DISTANT HOURS by Kate Morton (Love her previous book THE FORGOTTEN GARDEN)

and

THE RED GARDEN by Alice Hoffman

I should be done with ADAM AND EVE by Naslund soon so be watching for a review. I was really excited to see that ROOM by Donoghue is doing so well.  It may very well be my favorite book this year. I have been fighting a cold for two weeks and my little one is also sick so my reading has slowed a bit.  But Fall is finally here and, as it is my favorite season, it always invigorates me. 

I have to find some time to sew Noodlebug's Halloween costume. He is going as the Cat in the Hat and his father and I are going as Thing 1 and Thing 2.  Hopefully....

I need to re-read your review. I just finished Room and was amazed. I've read a couple of her other books and thought they were a little better than OK, but Room is definitely one of my favorites.

So glad you liked ROOM!!! I am worried many people will be put off by the plot description when it is really such a wonderful book.

Looking forward to your review of the book about Pinter. "The Caretaker" is one of my favorite plays.
