  1. The Things We Keep should be really good. I’ve never seen The Office either but I’ve heard The Bassoon King is great.

    The Furies and The Year of Saying Yes both sound fabulous! Awesome mailbox.

    Nice selection of books. I have seen The Things We Keep at several blogs and it sounds good. I love the Christmas stories – I wish I had more time.. or better planning to fit more in. I hadn’t seen the Clinton book before – sounds odd/different.
    I hope you have a lovely week.

  8. I have a copy too of The Things We Keep coming soon, looking forward to it. His Whole Life also sounds really interesting, I’ve only read one other book that (partially) involved the Quebec referendum.

  9. Ooh I really want to listen to the Rainn Wilson book. He was so funny on The Office and I love celebrity memoirs, too. Can you believe I still haven’t finished Allegiant? I got about halfway through and put it down…
