Mailbox Monday

June 25, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia and hosted this June by Marie of Burton Book Review.   Another month has flown by!  Summer is here with a vengeance, but I’m not complaining – it’s my favorite season.  I hope summer brings everyone plenty of reading time.  I found these books in my mailbox last week:





Did you find any goodies in your mailbox last week?

    Holy mackeral! I’m in awe of such a mailbox! Penguin was really good to you this week. Have a good week and enjoy all your new books!

    Wow! I would love to receive that many parcels in a week! And if they all contained books, well…enjoy them in the nice warm weather, it’s freezing here (I’m wearing ear muffs – inside).

    Can’t wait to hear about these! I think Tumbleweeds is the only one I’ve seen around. I started hearing “Taking Care of Business” when I spied the Randy Bachman book 😀

    Jeez girl. You are keeping your mailman in business aren’t you?

    Great week I’d say but Monday was clearly outstanding. Thanks for checking out my MM

  8. June 25, 2012 8:16 am

    Wow , quite a stack!

  9. June 25, 2012 8:39 am

    Impressive stack! I received Tumbleweeds on Sparky this week, and should be getting The Roots of the Olive Tree (from Vine) in the next day or two. Enjoy!


  10. June 25, 2012 8:59 am

    Wow, great mailbox! I’m excited to read Tumbleweeds. Enjoy all your new reads.

  11. June 25, 2012 9:23 am

    I got a lot of the same books you did last week. I don’t even know where to start – they all look so good!

  12. June 25, 2012 9:44 am

    Some really good books. I am curious about Tiger Hills! Enjoy!

  13. June 25, 2012 9:51 am

    You got WOW mailbox!


    Here is my post.

  14. June 25, 2012 10:11 am

    So many books!! I’ve been eyeing Tiger Hills. Enjoy your reading week.

  15. June 25, 2012 11:02 am

    Wow, great week…and it doesn’t include BEA books!

    Tumbleweeds really interests me as does The Roots of the Olive Tree which I also received. Some Girls, Some Hats and Hitler also intrigues me.

    Happy reading, Kathy!

  16. June 25, 2012 11:24 am

    Tumbleweeds is one that I passed on, and am now kicking myself in the pants for doing so! Enjoy your new books Kathy!

  17. June 25, 2012 11:31 am

    Great haul! Plus, GCs are always awesome 😀

  18. June 25, 2012 11:35 am

    That is a huge book haul!

    Awesome pile!

    You had an excellent week! Tumbleweeds is so pretty. Hope you enjoy all your new arrivals.

  22. June 25, 2012 12:37 pm

    Oooo, some great sounding titles! You have a Summer of reading ahead of you. Enjoy.

  23. June 25, 2012 1:00 pm

    Wow, I don’t know where to start here. Lots of new books for me to read about. Can never have too many cookbooks!

  24. June 25, 2012 1:08 pm

    Wow, what a stack! Tumbleweeds and the Alex Wichtel book look especially good. Happy reading!

  25. June 25, 2012 1:24 pm

    Hi Kathy,

    I can’t believe how many books you manage to amass in just one week, nor how you manage to find the time to read them all!!

    There are some quite diverse genres in your stack and as I can’t possibly add them all to my list, I guess I shall have to select just a couple.

    Both of my choices, I have already seen highlighted on other people’s sites, but they do sound excellent.

    ‘The Roots of The Olive Tree’ and ‘Tumbleweeds’ (which has a beautiful cover as well).

    I hope that you get to enjoy some of them this week.


  26. June 25, 2012 2:27 pm

    You had a full mailbox!! Your mailman/upsman/fedexman must be great friends…ha ha. Even my mailman comments to me. Enjoy!!

  27. June 25, 2012 2:48 pm

    Hi, Kathy! I am back from my vacation/blogging break. Your mailbox is outstanding and I hope you enjoy each of your new books. Wow! What an assortment! You certainly got a bonanza of books!

    Oh me oh my…what will be your plan of attack?

  29. June 25, 2012 3:09 pm

    Your mailbox is on fire this week! ROOTS OF THE OLIVE TREE looks amazing – part magic, part family mystery, part female relationships, all wrapped up in a multi-narrative! Happy Reading!!

  30. June 25, 2012 3:16 pm

    Wow that’s a good week 😀

    WOW!! You must have a HUGE mailbox. Guessing your mail carrier has big arm muscles from carrying all those books lol. Can’t wait to see what you think of Tumbleweeds. How do you not get behind in reading with all the books you receive?

    I laughed out loud when I saw your stack of books! Your poor mailman!!! LOL

    I’m jealous about a few of those! Great haul!

  34. June 25, 2012 7:01 pm

    I’m thinking your mailman must be tired! 🙂 I know mine actually noticed that I’ve been getting fewer books and asked me why. Perils of living in a small town.

  35. June 25, 2012 7:26 pm

    What a fabulous stack of books! Happy reading 🙂

  36. June 25, 2012 7:52 pm

    Oh me…So many links to click on!! Wonder how many of them I’m going to add to my Pinterest “Books I Want To Read” board?

  37. June 25, 2012 8:03 pm

    Enjoy all of those great books.

  38. June 25, 2012 9:39 pm

    Wow, all those books and we have only Friday’s in common.

  39. June 25, 2012 11:23 pm

    I really loved Roses, so I’m hoping that I’ll be able to pick up Tumbleweeds as soon as possible. I’m sure I’ll love it just as much as her first.

  40. June 26, 2012 12:54 am

    I loved Tiger Hills. I hope you enjoy all your books!

  41. June 26, 2012 3:07 am

    Great haul again this week! I’ve seen Tumbleweeds around a lot this week, I’m curious about it. Enjoy your new books!

  42. June 26, 2012 6:49 am

    As usual a wonderful collection. Better Living Through Plastic Explosives sounds intriguing – enjoy!

  43. June 26, 2012 2:22 pm

    another great haul!your house must look like the galley room at my bookstore!

  44. June 27, 2012 12:29 pm

    Wow, that’s quite the mailbox Kathy!

  45. June 27, 2012 6:18 pm

    Hope you have had a great week!

  46. June 27, 2012 8:55 pm

    As always, I’m jealous of your mailbox. I’m curious what you’ll use your gift certificate on. Do you even need to BUY books? : )

  47. June 28, 2012 1:39 pm

    That is quite the haul of books! Enjoy!

  48. June 28, 2012 10:10 pm

    Tumbleweeds looks so pretty! Happy reading!
