Welcome to my weekly update for February 2, 2015. It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I didn’t have too much going on this week. My grandmother came home from the assisted living facility on Thursday afternoon. Yay! Thanks for all your well-wishes!

I finally spent all my Christmas Barnes & Noble gift cards. I think I got some goodies!

From the bottom:

Trader by Charles de Lint (I used to own this one but I think I loaned it to a former co-worker and never got it back.)

The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy

A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash (I loved Mr. Cash’s second novel, This Dark Road to Mercy, so I decided to order his first)

Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman

I read The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede ages and ages ago. My sister bought her own copy when we were both still at home but I never did. Until I found this box set.
