Mailbox Monday

January 16, 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.   I’ve been away from home since last Monday, so Carl’s been keeping me up to date on my mailbox – he even took the picture and sent it to me.  Here’s what Carl found in my mailbox:





What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Sleepy Hollow Family Almanac sound really interesting! Haven’t heard of any of these.

  5. January 16, 2012 8:59 am

    Other Waters sounds good and it looks like we have some Algonquin books in common!

  6. January 16, 2012 9:00 am

    Until Next Time sounds good. Also can’t wait to read The Lifeboat. Enjoy all those fantastic looking books!

    I’d love to get my hands on Lifeboat; sounds amazing. Enjoy all of these Kathy.

  10. January 16, 2012 10:07 am

    quite a stash

  11. January 16, 2012 10:07 am

    Here’s MY MONDAY MEMES POST and here’s

    Gollee Kathy, you hit it big this week. Enjoy surfing through each book.

  13. January 16, 2012 10:12 am

    American Sniper sounds fascinating. I read the 10 question interview the author recently did with time, and it was eye-opening.

    The comparisons of Until the Next Time to The Time Traveler’s Wife intrigue me, as well as the Irish setting.

    Happy reading!

    Busy week for your mailbox. And some nice titles too. I also received Other Waters, am looking forward to that one. And I didn’t know John Sandford had a new book out… I’m still waiting for him to write another book in the Kidd series.

    Holy book stack! Your mailman needs a dolly to deliver to your house …LOL

  17. January 16, 2012 10:48 am

    Looks like some good reading there.

  18. January 16, 2012 10:54 am

    Holy smokes! Where do you keep them all?! 🙂

  19. January 16, 2012 10:58 am

    With the weather around here, The Coldest Night would be very appropriate!

    Enjoy all your new books!

  20. January 16, 2012 11:04 am

    All are new to me titles so I’ll watch for your reviews. Have a good week!

  21. January 16, 2012 11:17 am

    Those are all new to me but The Face Thief sounds particularly good. Enjoy!

  22. January 16, 2012 11:38 am

    Wow! A lot of interesting sounding books. I’m definitely looking forward to your thoughts on Girl Land – I’ve read some great reviews about it and have it on my TBR list.

  23. January 16, 2012 11:51 am

    What a GREAT mailbox! The Face Thief and Other Waters are books that I was already interested in; I will look forward to your thoughts on them!

    Enjoy your reading week!

  24. January 16, 2012 11:54 am

    Such a beautiful stack of books! So many of them sound captivating! Enjoy, Kathy!

  25. January 16, 2012 12:11 pm

    Hi Kathy,

    You are in for a busy time, what a great haul of books in just one week, and such a great variety of genres and writing styles.

    Quite a few people seem to have received a copy of ‘Other Waters’ and I am really struck on that one.

    ‘The Face Thief’ is the other one that I would be really keen to read. That sounds like a really intense, psychological story, which should provide a gripping read.

    I hope that you enjoy each and every one of them and have a great week

  26. January 16, 2012 12:15 pm

    Looking like you had a great week!!
    I received American Dervish from Little Brown and Company
    I also received the four Thrity Umragar books, a win from Swapna’s blog and Harper Perennial.

  27. January 16, 2012 12:33 pm

    Hey, I thought you were cutting back on review books this year?!?? LOL! I see you got the same package from Harper Collins that I got 🙂

  28. January 16, 2012 12:41 pm

    That’s a great haul. Enjoy!

  29. January 16, 2012 12:45 pm

    Most of these are new to me, but I spot some pretty intriguing titles among that stack, and can’t wait to hear what you think of them. Great stack this week, Kathy!

  30. January 16, 2012 1:32 pm

    Have fun!

  31. January 16, 2012 1:42 pm

    Wow, what a great haul this week! Almost all of those are books I haven’t heard of before so I’ll keep an eye out to see what you think of them.

  32. January 16, 2012 2:06 pm

    Those are all new to me titles. There is a few that sound really interesting. You had a great haul last week Kathy, enjoy 🙂
