Mailbox Monday is a meme originated by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. It's now being rotated through different blogs monthly. During September, Mailbox Monday will be hosted by Amused By Books. Bloggers can share info about the new books that have come into their homes during the week. It's a great way to learn about MORE books to add to your wish lists and TBR piles.
I've always thought the Children's Crusade would make a great historical novel for kids and/or young adults. Evidently, Linda Press Wulf thought so too, because she wrote Crusade, published this year by Bloomsbury, UK. I've been trying to get a hold of a copy for awhile without luck, then once again remembered The Book Depository. It just arrived. I want to read it for the YA historical fiction challenge so I hope to get to it soon.
And while I'm at it, I'll cheat a bit and mention a book I bought last week. I was killing time at the mall waiting for my son and decided to make one last trip into Waldenbooks. I had a few dollars left on a Borders gift card. The store was practically cleaned out. It was so sad. I've spent many hours browsing in that store and have many impulse purchases to show for it. (Cutting for Stone was one-- what an awesome read that was.)
Anyway, my TBR pile is getting bigger instead of smaller, but I'm really looking forward to these two!
