Mailbox Monday

April 26, 2010

I admit it – I’m nosy and love seeing what everyone found in their mailboxes last week.  That’s why Mailbox Monday is one of my favorite memes – a big thanks to Marcia of  The Printed Page for hosting it. Head on over to Marcia’s blog to see what everyone else got last week or to join in the fun.  These are the books that came into my house last week:





  • Virginia Tech Home Sweet Home Recipe Contest 2009 Cookbook came from Virginia Tech

What books did you welcome into your home last week?

    Not in my mailbox exactly, but I did very well at the semi-annual library book sale:

  2. April 26, 2010 5:34 am

    I have Bloodroot on my shelf and hope to get to it soon. It looks amazing!

  3. April 26, 2010 6:40 am

    Bloodroot was good Kathy. I have the Frozen Rabbi as well; enjoy them all.

  4. April 26, 2010 7:03 am

    Bloodroot received such a wonderful review from EW, and I’ve had it on my list for awhile. I’ve been waiting to see some of you all review it. I may have to cave and buy it!

  5. April 26, 2010 7:13 am

    Sandy and I obviously get our reviews from EW because I’ve been dying to read BLOODROOT ever since seeing it in that magazine as well! Nice stash!

  6. April 26, 2010 7:47 am

    Kathy, I hope you like THE CROSSING PLACES. It’s one of my top reads for this year. You got some other ones that look interesting.

  7. April 26, 2010 7:52 am

    Great books as always! As a person always on the prowl for new recipes the Virginia Tech cookbook sounds terrific!

  8. April 26, 2010 7:56 am

    Nice mailbox list. I’ll bet the VT cookbook is wonderful!

  9. April 26, 2010 8:06 am

    Great week and look at all those wins! Hope your lucky streak continues.

  10. April 26, 2010 8:13 am

    Another great week for you, and a lot of wins too! Enjoy your books.

  11. April 26, 2010 8:22 am

    I haven’t seen any of these books before, they do look good. I am still waiting for one more parcel to turn up.

  12. April 26, 2010 8:22 am

    Wanna read Bloodroot. You received interesting books!

    Mailbox Mondays

  13. April 26, 2010 8:24 am

    I love all your books. I have wanted to read Bloodroot and The Crazy School. Well, I would love That Homemade Life. I just like the whole pile. Have fun!

  14. April 26, 2010 8:30 am

    Wow, you had a lot of wins last week. Good for you! Enjoy your books!

  15. April 26, 2010 8:45 am

    So many wonderful books this week! I want to look into Bloodroot. Have a great week Kathy!

  16. April 26, 2010 8:56 am

    Great haul! I’m waiting for Finny as well… can’t wait to read it, sounds wonderful.

  17. April 26, 2010 9:03 am

    Oh, I hope you enjoy A Homemade Life! I found it quite delightful.

  18. April 26, 2010 9:09 am

    Thanks for stopping by, I love the title , Mother’s and other Liars. But, I’ve not heard of any of your other choices, I’ll be anxious for your reviews on these. Love new adventures, makes reading interesting.

  19. April 26, 2010 9:12 am

    I am in awe of how many books you win! Do see a ‘dog’ in title theme?

  20. April 26, 2010 9:13 am

    Great stack of books! I only got one this week. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  21. April 26, 2010 9:18 am

    Kathy, i agree. I am very nosy and i look forward to seeing all of the books that you get every week. That’s a great pile. I hope you enjoy all of them.

    Happy Reading!!

  22. April 26, 2010 9:20 am

    These look like some great books and quite a few are new to me. Enjoy!

  23. April 26, 2010 9:32 am

    Oh, I’m totally nosy so I have to agree that MM is one of my fave meme’s! I love your picture of your stack of books 🙂

  24. April 26, 2010 9:33 am

    Kathy you had another great week. Look at those wins. You have been on a lucky streak lately. I will have to make it a point to steal some of that lucky streak when we meet up. (Hey this time next month we will just be leaving the author breakfast 🙂 )

  25. April 26, 2010 9:35 am

    Oh, I like the look of several of those books. Crazy School is one I’ve seen around…intriguing. Also, Mothers and Other Liars.

    Have a great week, and thanks for dropping by my blog.

  26. April 26, 2010 9:36 am

    I am so excited to hear what you think of The Crazy School! I have heard it’s quite a book and I really want to read it. Enjoy all your new reads!

  27. April 26, 2010 9:53 am

    I’m nosy too:) You got some great wins, many are new to me so I’m going to check them out. The cookbook sounds great.

  28. April 26, 2010 10:13 am

    Wow, that’s a lot of books. have you run out of room yet! Happy reading. The title of Frozen Rabbi made me chuckle!

  29. April 26, 2010 10:30 am

    You had another great week. Looks like some really interesting reads there. Enjoy them!

  30. April 26, 2010 11:10 am

    Oooh, you won Bloodroot…nice!

  31. April 26, 2010 11:23 am

    The Frozen Rabbi? Is that something I need to investigate for my book club??

  32. April 26, 2010 11:34 am

    I’m nosy too. I just like to see what great titles are out there that are new to me. Enjoy all your new titles!

  33. April 26, 2010 12:35 pm

    I haven’t read any of the books that you got this week, but I do hope you enjoy all of them.

  34. April 26, 2010 12:59 pm

    You got some that make me very jealous! 🙂 Enjoy your reads.

  35. April 26, 2010 1:18 pm

    I’m not familiar with any of those, but I hope they all turn out to be great!

  36. April 26, 2010 1:54 pm

    The Crazy School is on my wish list! Happy reading!

  37. April 26, 2010 2:02 pm

    Wow! That’s quite a mailbox, Kathy. I got a couple of new books last week, but I didn’t do Mailbox Monday today (one of my favorite memes, too) because I have an author interview and book giveaway for The Little Giant of Aberdeen County on my blog right now.

    The Frozen Rabbi is a great title for a book! May you enjoy them all 🙂

  38. April 26, 2010 2:24 pm

    I’ve had my eye on Mothers & Other Liars around the blogosphere — the title is very attention-grabbing! 🙂 Hope you enjoy all of them!

  39. April 26, 2010 2:52 pm

    I’ll be interested to see what you think of The Crossing Places.

  40. April 26, 2010 2:55 pm

    I’m very interested to hear what you think about “The Frozen Rabbi,” because I have been interested in that one myself.

    Bloodroot was fantastic. It’s one of those books that stays with you long after you finish reading. Love your stack of books!

  42. April 26, 2010 3:22 pm

    Wow, lots of new to me books.. Enjoy!

  43. April 26, 2010 3:29 pm

    Girlfriend … you certainly received a lot of great books. Does your mailman/woman ever deliver your take in a wheelbarrow? LOL!

    I love being nosy too! Sadly, I received no new books in my mailbox last week! Then again, given how far behind I am in my reading, that is probably a good thing!

  45. April 26, 2010 4:05 pm

    What wonderful books!!! I also won The Crossing Places! What a fun and exciting surprise that was. It sounds so good, I can’t wait to read it!! I really really want to read The Crazy School!
    Enjoy all of your great goodies and have a great week!

  46. April 26, 2010 4:08 pm

    They all look fantastic…You will so love Homemade of my faves for last year!

  47. April 26, 2010 4:56 pm

    I LOVED Crazy School! I always enjoy your Mailbox Monday because I get to meet so many new people and sites… just chcked out Glue- very cool! I just signed up and am exploring now, thanks for turning me on to it!

  48. April 26, 2010 5:17 pm

    Congrats on all your wins! Looks like another great stack of new books 🙂

  49. April 26, 2010 5:44 pm

    I do love seeing those stacks of books…I love piles and piles of books everywhere…

  50. April 26, 2010 6:48 pm

    I really want to read Bloodroot. I’m on the waiting list for it at my library. Happy reading!

  51. Snowbell permalink
    April 26, 2010 7:37 pm

    As usual, a very nice collection. Happy reading 🙂

  52. April 26, 2010 8:11 pm

    Lots of good stuff. Bloodroot looks really good especially!

  53. April 26, 2010 10:23 pm

    I was immediately drawn to the recipe book. I love cookbooks and recipe books, and yet, ironically, I hardly ever try new recipes from them.

  54. April 26, 2010 10:43 pm

    I also love to see what others are reading! I have also won The Crazy School and am awaiting it. The others are all new to me but it looks a good mix and a nice pile to have around.

  55. April 26, 2010 11:46 pm

    Cornelia Read sounds familiar for some reason but I can’t place why I recognize her name.

  56. April 27, 2010 2:38 am

    Enjoy your books. Thank you for stopping by.

  57. April 27, 2010 2:44 am

    I have an Amy Bloom collection of short stories on my bedside stand. Love the list here!

  58. April 27, 2010 5:26 am

    oh, wow you had a great mailbox! Enjoy!

  59. April 27, 2010 11:18 am

    As usual, you have a great-looking stack! I have The Angel of Forgetfulness by Stern but haven’t read it yet. Looking forward to your thoughts on his newest book. A Homemade Life has been on my TBR list forever.

    Happy reading!

  60. April 27, 2010 12:24 pm

    What a nice pile! I got The Crossing Places from Glue as well. I’m looking forward to reading it and several mysteries over the summer!

  61. April 27, 2010 1:52 pm

    A Homemade Life was really good. I think you’ll enjoy it!

  62. April 27, 2010 5:20 pm

    What a great stack. Enjoy!

  63. April 27, 2010 8:43 pm

    You have an awesome bunch there. The VT book caught my eye!

  64. April 27, 2010 11:44 pm

    wow, love all the books, great week for the mailbox 🙂

    The Crossing Places is an excellent mystery and the start of a great new series. Book two has just come out.

  66. April 28, 2010 5:27 pm

    The memoir TAKE GOOD CARE OF THE GARDEN AND THE DOGS looks great!

    Enjoy …

  67. April 30, 2010 12:13 pm

    I have to ask – how many pages is Frozen Rabbi? I’m reading it in installments from Tablet Magazine, but your picture makes me think it’s quite a thick book and it’s be nice to have an idea how long it is.

  68. May 2, 2010 4:35 am

    Bloodroot sounds very good! You’ve got a full mailbox, Kathy! Here’s to a wonderful reading month in May. 😀
