In My Shopping Bag (54)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.
Through her guidelines, your post does not actually have to be named the same and thus my post shall be..."In My Shopping Bag".  (just fits with the "foodie" theme a bit better in my humble opinion)
Let's see what's inside this week...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Review

Cake Boss:  Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia by Buddy Valastro
(courtesy of Caitlin at Free Press / Simon & Schuster)
What can I say?  The moment I saw this one, it spoke right to my Italian heritage.  I mean, you've got a combination history of the bakery, sweets to satisfy your sugar craving, and a look into the la cucina of one loud, boisterous Italian family (hmm, some of this may be a bit familiar...).  Look for the review this December as well as your chance to win a copy...in the mean time, be sure to check out the main site to enter for a chance to see Buddy while he's out on tour!



The Emerald Atlas (Books of Beginning) by John Stephens
(ARC courtesy of Knopf Books for Young Readers / Random House)
Already read the first chapter when it arrived and I must say....I think this one is going to be rather good!  Scheduled release date for this title is April 5th, 2011.

Received

Okay so perhaps "received" is not the right word....more like arrived, sort of.  This was all that remained of a lovely letter and packet of bookmarks (for future giveaways) from the folks over at TLT Publishing.  *SIGH*  Thanks for trying guys....unfortunately the goat at my local USPS office was extremely hungry and bookmarks were his craving of choice.  *grr*

That's all for this week!
What did YOU get?
Do tell!


Until next time....happy reading!

Sometimes I really can't stand our postal service here, drives me crazy how they handle things. Ugh!

Anywho...Cake Boss! Wahoo! Love the show, the book has got to be great!
And I'd never heard of The Emerald Atlas...I'll have to look it up. Great haul, even if less than the norm! :o)
