Mailbox Monday

April 5, 2010

A big thanks to Marcia of  The Printed Page for hosting one of my favorite memes.  Go over to Marcia’s blog to join in on the fun or to see what everyone else got.   Carl keeps saying that he’s tired of hearing me say I’m embarrassed when I work on my Mailbox Monday post.  Then, he looked at last week’s stack of books and said he was embarrassed.  I had quite a few wins come in last week, so I really do think this week will be slower.  These are the books came into my house last week:








What books did you welcome into your home last week?

    My Most Excellent Year is, well, absolutely excellent 😀 Enjoy!

    You’ve won lots of books, Kathy! I’m green with envy… I took a look at all the titles and I was going like that’s interesting… that’s interesting… You’re one lucky, lucky woman!

    Happy reading!

    P/S: I’m feeling a tad guilty looking at all the books I’ve bought/won and I’m accumulating and not reading them fast enough… But still, I “need” to get more. Hmmm…

    Wow, great mailbox. I really enjoyed Crazy Heart, i’ll be looking forward to your review. Looks like you received some great books. I also received Dead End Gene Pool, it looks very interesting.

    Congratulations! It’s amazing the books you’ve gotten in one week. I love Tracy Chevalier’s books. She’s another favorite author. I am dying to read Remarkable Creatures. Your other books I bet are great too. I am looking forward to reading your reviews.

    I always wanted to be part of Amazon Vine. I think it’s a secret organizations for special people, not me. 🙂

    My Mailbox Monday is in the sidebar of my blog.

    I thought The Unnamed was one of the most unique novels I’ve read in a long time. Looking forward to your thoughts…great stash!!

    Fabulous mailbox! I received She’s So Dead to Me too. I also think the Wendy Burden book looks good (of course I am a big memoir fan).

    Enjoy your bounty of books & hope you have another terrific week!

    Remarkable Creatures was wonderful. It as a simple story, but the writing was…. well…. remarkable. I listened to it on audio and it was very entertaining. I have to put my review up this week, but I don’t know if I can even do it justice. I hope you enjoy it.

  15. April 5, 2010 8:28 am

    I did have to do a double take when I looked at your picture!! Wowsers!! I’m loving it and I hope they’re all great reads for you!! 😀

  16. April 5, 2010 8:47 am

    You had a great week! I’ve been wanting to get Remarkable Creatures. And I loved The House of Tomorrow. Happy reading! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

    The Meg Cabot’s look fun, so I’ll definitely be checking back on those. Enjoy those wins!!! I’ve won three in the past couple of weeks, and I love that they can be read at my leisure, since they are not review books!

  23. April 5, 2010 11:54 am

    Wow, that’s a good month’s worth of reading last week, even without the gift cards!

  41. April 5, 2010 5:45 pm

    Literally a toppling pile you’ve got there! How fabulous. Remarkable Creatures is a book I’m definitely looking forward to reading, being such a lover of historical fiction encompassing art history/artists. I’m currently reading Claude & Camille by Stephanie Cowell and it’s terrific! Enjoy your new books!

    Here’s my mailbox.

    Wow! Great books! I hope you enjoy them all!

  45. April 5, 2010 8:24 pm

    My friend just gave me Remarkable Creatures for a late birthday present; I’ve loved Tracy Chevalier’s workk before so I’m looking forward to that. I’m also looking forward to reading The Dead End Gene Pool with you!

    We received loads of the same books this week! I too got The Keeper, She’s So Dead To Us, and the Meg Cabot books. I’ve already read the latter and found them enjoyable.

    Hope you get good reads out of this awesome pile.

  54. April 11, 2010 2:28 pm
