Mailbox Monday

November 5, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia and hosted by Edgy Inspirational Romance this month.   I had an emotional week last week and didn’t get much reading done, so I was happy to have a quiet week in my mailbox.   I found these books in my mailbox:

When I checked this morning, this month’s host hasn’t posted, so I’ve added a Mr. Linky to the bottom of my post so everyone can link up here.




Did you find any goodies in your mailbox last week?

    I’ve had my eye on the John Grisham. Hope your week allows you to do some more reading.
    My mailbox is here:

    I have Crossing on the Paris as well. Hope you have a good reading week this week.

    I know my husband will want to read the Grisham.
    You’re in my thoughts, Kathy.

    That Paris book sounds like a good one for you.

    Lucky you receiving The Racketeer; hope to get the audio from the library sometime. enjoy

      Agreed, not normally a huge Grisham fan but I want to read this one! Can’t wait until the library or the local used book store has it on their shelves!

    Crossing on the Paris looks like a good one. Enjoy your books. No new books for me this week. But it’s TLC tour day for me for the latest Bauermeister.

  9. November 5, 2012 7:43 am

    Small pile but really good books.

  10. November 5, 2012 7:49 am

    Thanks for posting the linky, Kathy.

    Enjoy The Racketeer. Fresh Off the Boat and Crossing on the Paris sound awesome too.

    You get such wonderful books all the time…thanks for sharing.

    I’ve read all of Grisham’s past books but not any of his latest. Will have to look into the Racketeer. Thanks for the link to MM!

  12. November 5, 2012 8:13 am

    Ooooh, the new Grisham in audio! These all look great.

  13. November 5, 2012 8:18 am

    Hope this week is better for you.

  14. November 5, 2012 8:22 am

    I’ll be interested in your review of Crossing on the Paris. Thanks for hosting!

  15. November 5, 2012 8:37 am

    Crossing on the Paris sounds like a interesting debut! I didn’t receive any new books and I’m breathing a sigh of relief. I want to read some that I’ve had in my stacks for ages now!

  16. November 5, 2012 8:40 am

    I got Fresh Off the Boat too – I am looking forward to that one!

  17. November 5, 2012 8:52 am

    I hope this week is a better one for you!

    Fresh Off the Boat looks interesting. Enjoy your new books!

  18. November 5, 2012 8:55 am

    Thanks for adding Mr Linky! I hope your week gets better than last week’s was.
    Your book Crossing on the Paris caught my eye! Here’s my Monday post.

    Crossing on the Paris looks good and I love audiobooks! Enjoy!

  20. November 5, 2012 9:10 am

    I haven’t read anything by John Grisham for awhile…so I’m eager to return. The Racketeer looks fascinating….thanks for sharing.

    You just let yourself have as much emotional time as you need. Text me if you need me. I’ll be doing anything but reading apparently.

    I have to look up Fresh Off the Boat. Being the daughter of Cuban immigrant, that’s the first thing I think of when I hear this title.

  27. November 5, 2012 11:06 am

    Thanks for saving the day with the link! I like the sound of Crossing on the Paris. Hope this week is a little better for you, Kathy.

  28. November 5, 2012 11:48 am

    A nice list of books, Fresh Off The Boat caught my eye.

  29. November 5, 2012 12:10 pm

    I’ve got the Grisham book on request, but am rethinking the book as I’ve never listened to Grisham on audio.

    Thanks for stepping up and hosting, Kathy!

  31. November 5, 2012 12:48 pm

    Enjoy your new books, Kathy, and thanks for filling in! 🙂 Next month, I will be hosting….

  32. November 5, 2012 1:44 pm

    I’m sorry to hear you’ve had an emotional week! Hope this week is better!

  33. November 5, 2012 2:12 pm

    Those books are all new to me. Things seem to have slowed down for everyone in the mailbox this time of year.

  34. November 5, 2012 2:20 pm

    I got Fresh Off The Boat too. It sounds like it will be really funny.

  35. November 5, 2012 2:37 pm

    I hope this week is a little better. Enjoy your books!

  36. November 5, 2012 2:53 pm

    You always have interesting books. All appear to be a good read. Hope you are doing a bit better this week.

    I think many of us had slow weeks because of the storm!

  38. November 5, 2012 3:12 pm

    Crossing On The Paris sounds so lovely! Enjoy your week…

  40. November 5, 2012 4:29 pm

    I still haven’t read a John Grisham novel…maybe in 2013. Maybe I should start with this one.

  41. November 5, 2012 6:38 pm

    Happy reading 🙂 I’ve ben wanting to read John Grisham for a while.

  42. November 5, 2012 7:28 pm

    I’ve been curious about Crossing on Paris. I will be looking forward to your review!

  43. November 5, 2012 7:37 pm

    I’m hoping the Grisham book is good as I would like to start reading his books again!! I have the Crossing on Paris too and love that cover!

  44. November 5, 2012 9:14 pm

    I ordered a copy of All the King’s Men from Alibris only because I found out it was now out of print (can you believe that!). I’ve always meant to read this novel, so I ordered a copy, which arrived last weekend. Also received a copy of Gabriele Rico’s Writing the Natural Way to use with my creative writing classes. No books from publishers last week….

  45. November 5, 2012 10:56 pm

    Hope you’re feeling better. Enjoy your books and thanks for picking up hosting duties. Have a great week!

  46. November 6, 2012 12:17 am

    A quiet week is good. Hope a book or two can provide some comfort.

    Hopefully the new Grisham is as good as his last one. Wishing you peace and serenity this weeek.

  49. November 6, 2012 8:58 am

    Hmmm…a new Grisham. I sometimes give in to his stuff hoping for another Firm!

  50. November 6, 2012 11:46 am

    I’ll be reading Crossing on the Paris for a book tour next week. I love books set in the 20s!

  51. November 6, 2012 3:28 pm

    Crossing on the Paris sounds really good. I hope you enjoy all three.

  52. November 6, 2012 7:35 pm

    Happy reading!
