Mailbox Monday

April 30, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia and hosted by Cindy of Cindy’s Love of Books for the month of April, which is quickly coming to a close.  The year is one-third over already and I feel like it just started. Here’s what I found in my mailbox last week:




Did you find any goodies in your mailbox last week?

    The Folded Earth sounds beautiful, will add that to my wishlist. Three Times Lucky sounds like fun too – enjoy!

    I was interested in the Gregg Allman book and I’m curious about the classics by Jennifer Adams

  3. April 30, 2012 6:33 am

    The Anuradha Roy book is the one I would covet!

  4. April 30, 2012 6:52 am

    I’ve been tempted by The Folded Earth myself. Enjoy!

  5. April 30, 2012 7:19 am

    Enjoy kathy, looking forward to Folded Earth.

    Believe it or not, I’ve never read Jane Eyre. It is high on my list of things that I need to do before I die.

  8. April 30, 2012 8:23 am

    Looks like some more winners…and I still have not read Jane Eyre!

  9. April 30, 2012 8:38 am

    I’m excited to read The Folded Earth. Enjoy all your new reads!

  10. April 30, 2012 8:46 am

    I’ve been meaning to reread Jane Eyre…meanwhile, I’m curious about the Gregg Allman book. I’m addicted to memoirs!

    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  11. April 30, 2012 8:48 am

    You got some good books this week. Enjoy!

  12. April 30, 2012 9:15 am

    I think In the Bag sounds cute.

    Happy reading!

    The Folded Earth sounds really, really good to me! Happy reading and happy Monday!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! In the Bag sounds so cute, it’s been awhile since I read something light hearted… maybe it’s time!

  17. April 30, 2012 9:53 am

    I also got The Folded Earth, and am sort of nervous because I didn’t totally love the first book that I read from the author. She had a great writing style, but the story was just so dark! But, that was long ago, and my tastes have changed as a reader, so I have high hopes!

  18. April 30, 2012 9:56 am

    Lots of great reads! I’m really looking forward to In The Bag — it seems very cute and fun!

    Jane Eyre… By Jennifer Adams? I will have to investigate this!

  20. April 30, 2012 10:47 am

    I got “I Couldn’t Love You More” last week as well. “In the Bag” looks great as well! Enjoy all of your new additions this week 🙂

  21. April 30, 2012 10:49 am

    Looks like you got s lot of good books. I’m off to check out the Jane Eyre one. I loved that book! Happy reading!

  22. April 30, 2012 10:53 am

    Nice collection of books, Kathy. Happy reading!

  24. April 30, 2012 10:58 am

    Jane Eyre is a long-time favorite of mine and I’m interested in what you think of this book. I didn’t know Greg Altman had a book out, I love The Altman Brother’s music, though! I, too, received The Folded Earth nd I’m loking forward to reading it. I hope we like it!

    Enjoy your new books, Kathy!
    Happy Reading!

    How cute are those Baby Lit books! I would love to have had those around when my daughter was little. Can’t wait to hear what you think of Three Times Lucky. Enjoy!

  26. April 30, 2012 11:49 am

    A great mix of books, enjoy! them.

    Is that baby Jane and Alice? Me <- jealous. Can't wait for your review.

  28. April 30, 2012 12:21 pm

    I’ve been lusting over those baby lit board books but haven’t actually picked any up yet (bought–I have physically picked them up. Ha!). They are quite interesting looking!!

  29. April 30, 2012 12:51 pm

    Amazing mailbox! I’d love to read Gregg Allman’s memoir.

    I have been noticing those books appearing on quite a few blogs this month. They all sound really good.

    I can’t believe its already the end of April. Wow time is certainly going very fast.

    Enjoy your books 🙂

  31. April 30, 2012 1:45 pm

    Happy reading!! 😀

  32. April 30, 2012 1:46 pm

    Well done, you have some very good reading ahead. Enjoy!

  33. April 30, 2012 2:54 pm

    Wow!! Lots of good books!! I Couldn’t Love You More is going on my list, as is My Cross To Bear, I’m a Gregg Allman fan from way back!

  34. April 30, 2012 3:19 pm

    Wonderful books this week! Enjoy your reading! I read The Folded Earth last week.

    All of these books are new titles to me this week…enjoy!

  36. April 30, 2012 3:39 pm

    If the Gregg Allman book comes out in audio I wouldn’t mind listening to it. Memoirs work much better for me in audio than they do in print.. not sure why. A Jane Eyre picture book, I like the concept!

  37. April 30, 2012 3:51 pm

    Great stack. Enjoy! I’ve given up on Alice in Wonderland though. I don’t seem to like any versions, from the original to easy reader ones.

    We got a few of the same ones. I think your books look pretty good overall.

    Those look yummy!

  40. April 30, 2012 4:18 pm

    I liked reading the descriptions about the books you got. I added “Three Times Lucky” and “In the Bag” to my TBR list!

  41. April 30, 2012 4:35 pm

    i love the idea of Baby Lit. I Couldn’t Love You More sounds like my kind of read.

  42. April 30, 2012 5:08 pm

    Hi Kathy,

    Lots of great books there to keep you going for a while.

    Your Thursday selection caught my interest the most, particularly the idea of introducing youngsters to the classics. At that young age most children seem to enjoy books and reading, at least until they are in their early teens when it all changes, so we should capture their attention and interest whilst we can.

    We had a donation of the complete set of ‘Narnia’ books into the charity shop today, and they only lasted as long as it took me to get them out on display, before a young girl spotted them. I love it when that happens…..

  43. April 30, 2012 5:26 pm

    A new Jane Eyre? Interesting!

  44. April 30, 2012 5:45 pm

    I’m curious about the Jennifer Adams books … are they graphic novels?

  45. Staci@LifeintheThumb permalink
    April 30, 2012 5:52 pm

    All of your books sound wonderful and I am very curious about that Jane Eyre book!!

  46. April 30, 2012 5:55 pm

    I don’t recall reading Jane Eyre either but I did read Alice In Wonderland many years ago. I would probably appreciate it more now! All of these look good and I hope you enjoy them. Have a great week! 🙂

  47. April 30, 2012 6:05 pm

    The Jane Eyre book sounds wonderful. Happy reading!

  48. April 30, 2012 8:01 pm

    Such interesting titles! Happy reading…

    Here is my post.

  49. April 30, 2012 9:48 pm

    Mmmmm I do love a good Alice book! Enjoy!

  50. April 30, 2012 9:49 pm

    I’m really curious about Folded Earth! I hope you enjoy your books.

  51. April 30, 2012 10:50 pm

    Another great mailbox. I hope they’re all wonderful. Happy reading!

  52. May 1, 2012 2:04 am

    I’m just in awe that you find time to read all the books you get in every week. You are amazing.

  53. May 1, 2012 7:27 pm

    Happy reading 🙂 those look like some great books.

  54. May 2, 2012 12:09 am

    Probably not a surprise that the only one I’m familiar with there is Jane Eyre. I’ve read it a couple of times, and for me it’s a perfect stormy night read. I hope you enjoy all of your books!

  55. May 2, 2012 10:44 pm

    Oh, I’ve been wanting to check out that Jane Eyre series of classics. Hope it lives up to the hype.

  56. May 4, 2012 8:53 pm

    I would love to read a Baby lit book — especially of one of my favorite novels. Lucky you!
