In My Shopping Bag (62)

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 take a peek inside my shopping bag this week....

Though I'm not the hugest Beatles fan, I have certainly heard some of there music before (who hasn't?).  Very curious to see just what happens in this story as I have a feeling it has more depth than meets the eye.  Book is scheduled for release February 2011.

Won
 
SIGNED copy of Betrayal by Gillian Shields
(1) nifty little magnetic bookmark
...plus a smile worthy thank you/congrats note
(via contest Julie at "That's Swell!")
Yay!  WAHOO!  ~happy dance~ *ahem* Sorry bout that...it's just the first book was so good and somehow or another I missed when the second book actually came out so when I stumbled across the contest I was jazzed to enter.  Guilty moment...despite current reads in progress, read the first 20 or so pages as soon as I opened the package.  (hehe)  Can't wait to read more...

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

Until next time....happy reading!
