Mailbox Monday

August 29, 2011

Since it’s Monday, it’s time to take a peek in my mailbox!  Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted by Staci of Life in the Thumb this month.  My mailbox was extra busy last week because we went to see my mom the week before –  Monday’s list is actually four days worth of mail.  This is what I found in my mailbox last week:





What was in your mailbox last week?

  2. August 29, 2011 6:02 am

    Wow! What a wonderful looking stack of books! Enjoy!

    boy, Claire LaZebnik sounds so familiar but I can’t think of what else she wrote. enjoy you r new books!

  5. August 29, 2011 7:08 am

    wow, great stack of books. These are all new to me. Happy reading!

  6. August 29, 2011 7:16 am

    I think my brain would explode if this showed up at my house in a week’s time! I just saw Death in the City of Light over at Anna’s, and I really am psyched about that one.

  7. August 29, 2011 7:19 am

    That wonderful stack is going to topple over…LOL

    Kathy, Once again, Thanks for your thoughts of concern for me during Hurricane Irene; I appreciate that.

  8. August 29, 2011 7:38 am

    Wow Kathy that is a great stack of books you got last week. The only one I see we have in common is the cookbook, the rest are all new to me titles. Enjoy 🙂

  9. August 29, 2011 8:06 am

    The mix of reads you have! (some rather heavy, but they sound WONderful!) .. Death in the City of Light – on my I-need-to-see-what-people-think-about-it-because-I-think-I’ll-like-it list. A Rather Remarkable Homecoming – a great one to pick up to lighten the brain after one of the heavy reads. The Wandering Falcon – sounds beautiful. Cucina Povera – I’m hungry now. Families and Other Non-Returnable Gifts – just the title makes me giggle. I also have A Thousand Lives; it seems that it may be an emotional read, especially knowing that it’s true.

    Enjoy your reading week!

  10. August 29, 2011 8:26 am

    Your postman must be moaning under that load! LOL

    What a stack! They all look good, and I hope you enjoy them. I think A Thousand Lives looks wonderful.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Wow, that’s a heck of a week! 🙂 Enjoy!

  13. August 29, 2011 8:45 am

    Whoa–what a mailbox! And all of those titles are new to me. Hope they’re good ones!

  14. August 29, 2011 8:54 am

    Great stack. I’m wondering about Cucina Provera.

  15. August 29, 2011 9:07 am

    I just received A Thousand Lives too… looks good!

  18. August 29, 2011 9:19 am

    I also got Death in the City of Light and A Thousand Lives, and am anxious to start them both. It seems like your mailbox was very full this week! I am glad, and hope that you enjoy all your new reads!

    I am also really, really excited about SIBA and getting the chance to see you again! I am sad that Amy won’t be able to go as well. I really would have loved to have gotten the opportunity to meet her.

  19. August 29, 2011 9:33 am

    HOLEY MOLEY!! I know what I’ll be doing over lunch today (looking up all those books)…if I’m not busy working Irene claims!

    That is an amazing stack of books! I have only heard of one..A Thousand Lives which sounds both devastating and intriguing! I think I might have to read that one. The others are all new to me titles but look interesting as well. Enjoy!

  50. August 30, 2011 11:45 pm

    Is there a room in your house that isn’t overflowing with books?

  51. August 31, 2011 12:58 am

    Wow! What a great stack of books. Hope you enjoy them all!

  52. August 31, 2011 8:26 am

    That’s a nice stack! I had to give Wandering Falcon a pass, when I saw that it was a group of stories, but I’m really curious to hear what you think!

  53. August 31, 2011 1:16 pm

    What a stack of books Kathy, fortunately you seem to be a fast reader! These are all new to me titles, hope that you enjoy them.

  54. September 1, 2011 9:02 pm

    Some of those books look awfully thick, Kathy! Enjoy …

  55. September 5, 2011 1:12 pm

    Holy cow! That is quite a week in books. Lots of great reading in store for you.
