    So many books in one week! and so many that appeal to me right now. Lucky you on getting so many books as birthday gifts (I look forward to the books I’ll receive on my birthday each year).

    I have read the Well Educated Mind and Alice I Have Been and loved both of them. I am anxious to find the time to read Broolyn.

    Looks like you had a very nice bookish birthday 🙂

      We’re reading A Reliable Wife for book club next month. Everyone adores it so much that I can’t wait to get to it.
