    Love the idea of Super Mario…. it did rule my house. My husband bought Nintendo for our son when he was just three days old (HA). I still joke about this. Love Super Mario.

    Great collection of books this week. Have a wonderful day!

    I’m so jealous of your Before Ever After! Looks like you’ll be brushing up on your grammar…

  22. July 11, 2011 10:47 am

    They sound nice 😀 I must go and check out Put a ring on it to see what it is about

  23. July 11, 2011 11:04 am

  27. July 11, 2011 11:50 am

    My eyes were instantly drawn to Super Mario. LOL I think I would enjoy reading that one! have a super reading week Kathy!

  28. July 11, 2011 12:02 pm

    You have a very eclectic assortment of books this week. Before Ever After and The Oriental Wife sound intriguing. I bet Super Mario is an interesting read too. Enjoy!

  29. July 11, 2011 12:07 pm

    Great mailbox, The Oriental Wife caught my eye and Before Everafter .

  30. July 11, 2011 12:14 pm

    I’m interested in that Super Mario one, whenever you get to it. I haven’t heard of that at all and my household is deep into Wii. I grew up with Super Mario, so it hits home both places.

  31. July 11, 2011 12:27 pm

    I am really curious about the Super Mario book. My brother and I grew up with it and my parents would also play with us. It was so much fun!

  32. July 11, 2011 1:00 pm

    Looks like a lot of good books again this week Kathy. Enjoy!

  33. July 11, 2011 1:15 pm

    I’m never not amazed by what you get in every week. Have a great week!

  34. July 11, 2011 1:21 pm

    Fun mix of books — the Grammar Girl ones grabbed me! I’m reading Everything Beautiful Began After later this month!

  35. July 11, 2011 1:27 pm

    oh, I LOVE the Grammar Girl..and could so use those books…lol

  36. July 11, 2011 1:30 pm

    What a great stack. Enjoy!

  37. July 11, 2011 2:13 pm

    Oooo, looks like some good books here!

    I recently read Everything Beautiful Began After, I really liked it, I hope you do!

  38. July 11, 2011 3:22 pm

    I cannot wait to see what you are going to do with the Super Mario book…

  39. July 11, 2011 3:40 pm

    Put a Ring on IT makes me want to dance to Beyonce tune with the same title… at least I think that’s the song. Before Ever After sounds like a romance 🙂

    Enjoy this great stash of reads 🙂

    I am unfamilair with most of these books Kathy. The Oriental Wife sounds excellent and I’ll be adding it to my wishlist.The Grammar Girl books also sound intriguing.

  41. July 11, 2011 4:35 pm

    Can’t wait for your review of Put a Ring on It & The Oriental Wife. Super Mario and both Grammar Girl’s sound interesting too!

  42. July 11, 2011 5:17 pm

    Put a Ring on It sounds like a book I would love. Happy reading!

  43. July 11, 2011 5:40 pm

    Ooooh, I bet my husband would love Super Mario. Fun stack!

  44. July 11, 2011 6:55 pm

    the Mario Bros. looks like I need to buy one for my sons.

  45. July 11, 2011 7:47 pm

    I’m excited to have just started Everything Beautiful Began After. I’ve already started to hear great things about it. Looking forward to seeing what you think!

    I’m curious about Super Mario. I definitely feel like I fell into the Nintendo generation. I was in elementary school when the original Nintendo came out, and I’ve always had a soft spot for my old Super Nintendo long after it became obsolete.

  46. July 11, 2011 7:51 pm

    You always have the best assortment of books! Enjoy your reading.

  47. July 11, 2011 8:20 pm

    As soon as I saw the Mario book in your stack I instantly heard the music in my head. He was a popular guy in our house along with Sonic, the hedgehog. I’ll have to watch for your thoughts on the book.

  48. July 11, 2011 8:51 pm

    I didn’t get any of those!

  49. July 11, 2011 9:09 pm

    I remember Super Mario! I had a lot of the Intellivision games and even they had a version of Mario. That sounds like a fun book.

  50. July 11, 2011 9:58 pm

    Your mailbox looks great as usual!! I have Oriental Wife on my kindle from Net Galley. Enjoy!

    I could use the Grammar Girls books!

  52. July 11, 2011 11:38 pm

    I hope to get a copy of Before Ever After. I just got the grammar books in the mail today and they look great!

  53. July 12, 2011 2:13 am

    Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your books.

  54. July 12, 2011 5:19 am

    Those grammar books sounds interesting. Happy reading

  55. July 12, 2011 9:22 am

    I’m intrigued by the Super Mario title.

  56. July 12, 2011 8:45 pm

    I was really curious about the Super Mario book, but didn’t ask for it because I have too much on my plate already. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

  57. July 12, 2011 9:11 pm

    I’m with Caite, and will be on the lookout for your Grammar Girl giveaways!

    Just last week I sent my niece the link to her site (a question about the proper use of “got” came up, and I turned to GG for the answer).

  58. July 13, 2011 3:19 am

    Oh, this is the second time I see “Before Ever After” in the pile and count me too for looking out for this book. ☺ Sounds like a movie possibility when done well. I also couldn’t help but grin at the GG books. Pesky punctuation gets the better of me. Lolz. Happy reading and thanks for visiting. ☺

  59. July 13, 2011 12:47 pm

    Super Mario has the geek in me excited.

  60. July 13, 2011 5:48 pm

    I definitely want to read The Grammar Girl books. I follow her on Twitter and think she is just awesome! Enjoy all of your new books.

  61. July 16, 2011 8:12 am

    I’ve heard lots of gushing over the Simon Vany Booy book. I hope you enjoy it as much as others have seemed to! I may have to get The Grammar Girl books, I could stand to have a beter vocabulary for sure.
