April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Hello, new book(s)! The Spirit of the Place by Samuel Shem and I, robot by Howard Smith

I've received two new ARC's this week in the mail. First, The Spirit of the Place by Samuel Shem arrived (which honestly, I had forgotten that I had requested it... maybe that's not a good sign; that I'm starting to forget which books I've requested...) and then 2 days later I received Howard S. Smith's I, robot. Both seem like they should be enjoyable reads.

you aren't the first person who doesn't recall requested The Spirit of the Place so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I actually started a list of books that I have requested. I hate surprises and can't remember half of the books that I requested! I did request The Spirit of the Place but did not hear back from them so I'm not sure if I will be receiving it or not.
