Mailbox Monday

October 31, 2011

Happy Halloween!  I hope everyone has a day full of treats and no tricks.  Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of  A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted by Serena of Savvy Verse and Wit this month.   This was a pretty good week for me, because I broke even – I read three books and got three books.  Here’s what I found in my mailbox last week:




Did you get any new books last week?

    Looks like you had a light week…now you can take a breather and read some scary stories for the holiday! 🙂

    What Serena said! Usually you have so many books, my head spins wondering how you will read them all. I don’t know much about any of these, but I hope they are good!

    These are new to me. Enjoy them all.

  4. October 31, 2011 6:33 am

    These are all new to me as well. I hope you enjoy them. Happy reading!

    I had no idea Erin Brockovich was writing fiction now…no idea how you get 3 books read in a week…ah, what bliss 🙂

  6. October 31, 2011 7:48 am

    I hope you like them all!

  7. October 31, 2011 7:53 am

    I’m curious about the Erin Brockovich one.

  8. October 31, 2011 8:59 am

    ooohh, three titles that are new to me! Love and Shame and Love catches my eye.

  9. October 31, 2011 9:00 am

    Love the Erin Brockovich one, will be interested to hear what you think.

  10. October 31, 2011 9:13 am

    Hmmm….. Hot Water by Brockovich? I bet that is interesting! Happy Halloween Kathy. Nothing happening here tonight.. probably hanging on the couch with Monsters Of Men.

  11. October 31, 2011 9:32 am

    Oh, is the Erin Brockovich book fiction or nonfiction? It does look intriguing. I read her fiction book Rock Bottom recently.

    Enjoy your reading!

    All three are new titles to me. I just looked at Hub city Press’ website — looks like they publish very interesting things!

  13. October 31, 2011 9:58 am

    Hmm..thinking your postal carrier is on vacation lol. Hot Water…will have to check that one out!!

  14. October 31, 2011 10:58 am

    Cool stack 🙂 Happy Halloween

  15. October 31, 2011 11:07 am

    This is a great stack, and I am also looking forward to getting to The Iguana Tree when it gets here. I hope you enjoy them all! Happy Halloween!

  16. October 31, 2011 11:09 am

    Books in and books out…sounds like good math to me! Enjoy your new books Kathy and have a Happy Halloween!

  17. October 31, 2011 11:26 am

    I hope you enjoy! your week of reading.

  18. October 31, 2011 11:32 am

    All new to me books. Enjoy your reading week!

  19. October 31, 2011 11:37 am

    Not familiar with these titles, but am intrigued by the Erin Brockovich book. Enjoy!

  20. October 31, 2011 11:37 am

    I am curious about the Erin Brockovich book. She is an interesting woman. I wonder how her writing is?

  21. October 31, 2011 11:42 am

    I always forget that Erin Brockovich is a real person and not a made up character played by Julia Roberts. Hope you have a great week and Happy Halloween.

  22. October 31, 2011 11:48 am

    They all look good. I didn’t know Brockovich wrote fiction!

  23. October 31, 2011 12:18 pm

    Nice, “mangeable” mailbox. Happy Halloween, Kathy!

  24. October 31, 2011 12:53 pm

    I don’t have any of those books so I can’t wait to hear what you think of them. Enjoy your goodies! Happy Halloween!!

  25. October 31, 2011 1:34 pm

    I would like to read Hot Water b/c I really enjoyed the movie Erin Brocovich. Hope it is another compelling true story!

  26. October 31, 2011 1:57 pm

    Kathy you had a quiet week but you got some great books. I have to admit those are all pretty new to me titles. Enjoy

  27. October 31, 2011 2:36 pm

    Happy Halloween, Kathy. We get very few trick-or-treaters here in the country but Dave insists we buy lots of candy. Hmmm, I sense an ulterior motive here. 🙂

    Hi Kathy,

    I can only dream of getting three books read in a week!

    Theses are all new titles and authors to me, but I wouldn’t mind reading the Erin Brockovich, sounds like a strong and powerful story and the cover art is great.

    I am in two minds about ‘Love and Shame and Love’, can’t decide whether it really appeals to me or not and I wasn’t struck on the cover, looks a bit washed out, but I guess it is meant to reflect Alexander’s life.

    ‘The Iguana Tree’ doesn’t really appeal at all, I read the synopsis, but it just doesn’t spark any interest, I’m afraid.

    Hope that you enjoy your haul

    Love and Shame and Love looks interesting – this is the first I’ve seen it. I haven’t tracked how many books I read vs. how many arrive at my house. Scary thought that. I might have to actually come face to face with my book addiction. 😉

  30. October 31, 2011 3:50 pm

    I had hear Erin Brokavich had a book coming out ~ hope it is a good one! is this fiction? non-fiction? can’t wait to read your review on it!

    Happy Halloween Kathy! and I’m with Alyce ~ keeping track of the books that come into the house v. those I’ve read/going out of the house…! scary, scary thought!

  31. October 31, 2011 3:50 pm

    You always get such interesting and unique books.

  32. October 31, 2011 4:16 pm

    Love and Shame and Love looks like a good one! Can’t wait for your review!

  33. October 31, 2011 4:37 pm

    Great picks! That last one really interests me 🙂

  34. October 31, 2011 5:02 pm

    Enjoy your books 😀

  35. October 31, 2011 5:20 pm

    Love and Shame and Love looks especially interesting. Enjoy your books!

    Looks like three good ones. Enjoy!

  46. November 2, 2011 7:42 pm

    LOVE AND SHAME AND LOVE looks like a chunkster (or are the other books simply thin? Maybe the camera adds 10 chapters?)

  47. November 2, 2011 8:41 pm

    Looks like some great books Kathy. Enjoy!

  48. November 7, 2011 5:27 am
