Mailbox Monday

January 9, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of  A Girl and Her Books and hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books for the month of January.   Last week was a slow one, but that’s fine by me.    Here’s what I found in my mailbox:



What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Have a great reading week!


  2. January 9, 2012 5:24 am

    I’d like to see what you think of the Blakemore book. A new one for me.

  3. January 9, 2012 5:38 am

    I have 11/22/63 but in book format, not audio – and can’t wait to read it.

  4. January 9, 2012 6:50 am

    The Stephen King book is so good. Not scary either. enjoy

  5. January 9, 2012 6:53 am

    Yeah baby! Start that audio quickly!

  6. January 9, 2012 6:56 am

    Enjoy your new books! 30 cd’s wow!

  7. January 9, 2012 6:56 am

    I have 11/22/63 on my list to read this year. It has been a long time since I read a Stephen King book. Looking forward to reading your review.

    I wish I could read Stephen King (too scary) as he is a great writer and has a way with words that can scare you to pieces…

  9. January 9, 2012 7:57 am

    Great loot this week – I REALLY want to read all of them!

  10. January 9, 2012 8:15 am

    Enjoy your reading week!

  11. January 9, 2012 8:17 am

    Looking forward to your review of the last one.

  12. January 9, 2012 8:27 am

    I hope you enjoy your books, especially the Stephen King. I wonder what it would be like on audio.

  13. January 9, 2012 8:40 am

    The Stephen King one looked huge! Then I realised it was an audio! #dumb

  14. January 9, 2012 8:51 am

    I can’t wait for your thoughts on the Stephen King book!

  15. January 9, 2012 8:56 am

    Sandy was nice enough to let me snag her library copy of the Stephen King book before she returned it so that I could download the CD’s to my ipod, and so that one is waiting for me! I can’t wait to see what I think of it, though I know it’s going to be a tremendous investment. I will be excited to see what you think of it too!

  16. January 9, 2012 8:56 am

    Have fun reading the books you got. I haven’t read any Stephen King books, I should read at least one book & see how i like it. 🙂

    Anyway, happy reading!

  17. January 9, 2012 9:17 am

    It may have been a slow week for you, but you won two great books (from what I’ve read!)

    I’m very interested in your thoughts on 11/22/63.

    Enjoy, Kathy! Happy Reading :o)

    30 discs of King should keep you amused for a while! Lol. Have a wonderful week and happy reading. My MM is here

  19. January 9, 2012 9:32 am

    Oh, I hope you enjoy them all! I have 11/22/63…and hope to start reading it soon. I’m curious about The Heroine’s Bookshelf. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  20. January 9, 2012 9:42 am

    Nice mailbox, Kathy…enjoy!

  21. January 9, 2012 9:54 am

    Enjoy your new books…I bet that Stephen King audio is gonna be a long one!

  22. January 9, 2012 9:56 am

    What good books. I hear nothing but good things about the Stephen King book.

  23. January 9, 2012 10:01 am

    I don’t like Stephen King at all but everyone is raving about 11/22/63. I think I remember that day too well to be very interested in the book. Even though I realize you have it in audio, it looks daunting.

  24. January 9, 2012 11:29 am

    I love the title “Inside Out & Back Again.” It intrigues me.

  25. January 9, 2012 11:49 am

    I definitely want to read The Heroine’s Bookshelf! My mom got my dad 11/22/63 for his Nook for Christmas…he’s reading it right now while they’re on a cruise. Totally jealous. 🙂 Happy Reading!

  26. January 9, 2012 11:55 am

    Wow, 30 discs makes it seem SO long. Enjoy!

  27. January 9, 2012 12:14 pm

    Wowy-zowy, that Stephen King audio book is huge! Hope you enjoy all your new reads! Happy New Year!

    Great mailbox, I want to read all of those! My mom really liked 11/22/63 I hope you do too. I’ve read almost all of Stephen King’s books but I’ve never listened to any. I’m so curious to see what you think!

  29. January 9, 2012 12:33 pm

    Wow, that Stephen King book is huge!

  30. January 9, 2012 1:13 pm

    I just finished Inside Out & Back Again and REALLY loved it. I’ll post my review on Quirky Girls Read next week. Have a tissue handy.

    Hi Kathy,

    I used to be an avid Stephen King reader, although I haven’t read anything of his for a few years now. I guess I just stopped enjoying the books so much. I am not sure that the epic you have secured is the one I should choose to re-kindle my interest, at over 750 pages, although I am very tempted by it.

    I thought I had read somewhere that Stephen King was one of the first authors to declare that he would no longer be publishing books in hard copy, but only as e-books? Your book is there as large as life on Amazon, so I guess I must have got that wrong!

    A great eclectic mix of genres this week, something to suit every mood, I hope that you enjoy them all.

  32. January 9, 2012 2:15 pm

    I loved The Heroine’s Bookshelf! I have a hard cover copy and love to pick it up over and over again. I just looked up Inside Out and Back Again and it looks amazing! I am not a Stephen King fan but his new book intrigues me! I hope you enjoy all of these Kathy!

  33. January 9, 2012 2:48 pm

    That audio book is a whopper! Holy moly! I just downloaded it to my ipad and it’s almost 700 pages.

  34. January 9, 2012 2:53 pm

    30 disks? really…30?

    sounds like a good e-book to me, nice and light.

  35. January 9, 2012 3:19 pm

    Congrats on your contest win! I can’t wait until I get my copy from the hold lists at the library (and then hopefully I like it). 🙂

  36. January 9, 2012 3:36 pm

    Lucky you on winning 11/22/63! I’d love the audio. I have the book so unless my library gets the audio I’m stuck. Enjoy!

  37. January 9, 2012 3:38 pm

    How long will it take to listen to Steven King…it looks massive!!!

  38. January 9, 2012 5:39 pm

    enjoy your books! that stephen king book looks like a monster with 30 cds!

  39. January 9, 2012 7:22 pm

    I’ve read some rave reviews about the King book. Enjoy!

  40. January 9, 2012 7:59 pm

    Ooh! The Heroine’s Bookshelf has me intrigued and I love that cover to Inside Out and Back! Hope you enjoy them!

  41. January 9, 2012 8:27 pm

    I loved the Heroine’s Bookshelf! Hope you like it too!

  42. January 9, 2012 8:58 pm

    OMG — look how big 11/22/63 is!! YIKES! Still, I’m excited to read it!

  43. January 9, 2012 9:07 pm

    nice win on the stephen king! my cousin just sent me her copy of the book, but i can’t find the energy to lift it, let alone read it! 🙂

  44. January 9, 2012 9:12 pm

    Is 11/22/63 really 30 CDs?! Crazy. Great book though. Enjoy!

    Seeing Heroine’s Bookshelf reminded me that I want to read that one!! 😀

  46. January 9, 2012 10:15 pm

    I’ve never heard of any of these.

    Here is mine

  47. January 9, 2012 10:40 pm

    I’m starting to think I need to retry Stephen King someday. Have a great week.

  50. January 10, 2012 1:37 am

    I listened to 11/22/63. It was long, but excellent.

  51. January 11, 2012 12:58 am

    Great wins! I have Heroine’s Bookshelf but haven’t had the time to read it yet.

  52. January 11, 2012 9:23 pm
