Mailbox Monday

November 12, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia and, as the back-up host, hosted by me this month.   My mailbox may not be complete because I’m currently at the beach with my mom and my sister.  I usually get a lot of reading done at the beach, but I have a feeling we’ll be too busy visiting to read.   Before I left I found these books in my mailbox:



Did you find any goodies in your mailbox last week?

    Hope you’re enjoying your beach holiday. Maria Semple’s title does sounds like it has a quirkiness I’d enjoy.

    Have fun at the beach! I like to read there too. Indiscretion looks great.

    Your getaway sounds wonderful, Kathy. Enjoy your new books. Where’d You Go, Bernadette? has been on my radar for a while.

    Indiscretion was a publisher pick at SIBA, and I almost started it a couple of weeks ago because Taylor P was talking about it. Then I realized it doesn’t come out for a few months. But I am so reading this one.

    Enjoy your beach time with family!

    I so want to listen to this one – Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple –enjoy

    Where’d You Go, Bernadette has been on my wish list for a while. Maybe I should try the audio book too. Enjoy your beach getaway!

    Happy reading 🙂 and enjoy your time at the beach!

    I really want to go to the beach! I haven’t been in such a long time…and that’s crazy, as there is one only two hours away! Enjoy!

    Hope you like the Bernadette book; I thought it was quirky and fun.

    I bet WHERE’D YOU GO is fantastic on audio!

  13. November 12, 2012 8:20 am

    Great mailbox. These are all new to me. Have fun at the beach!

  14. November 12, 2012 8:46 am

    The Bernadette book is one I’ve had my eye on. Enjoy them all.

  15. November 12, 2012 8:55 am

    I enjoyed the print version of Where’d You Go, Bernadette. I’m curious how the audio will turn out since the story is mostly told through various types of correspondence, notes, emails, etc. Enjoy the beach and your family … wish I was somewhere warm!

  16. November 12, 2012 8:55 am

    I’m sure the new Maria Semple novel will be a blast (I loved her last one).

    Have a great time visiting with your sister and mom!

    Dwarf sounds rather entertaining, and like something that I would like, and I can see that you’ve got another great audio to look forward to. Such a great mailbox today, Kathy!

    Enjoy your time away with the family! Have a great week!

    Have a great time away at the beach!

    Visiting with your family is more important than reading. Have a great time! Can’t wait to hear what you think of the Bernadette audio.

  24. November 12, 2012 10:33 am

    I am so jealous of a beach vacation with sister and mom. I have one sister and we just lost our mom in July. Wish we had been able to do that kind of vacation before she got so sick.

    All you books look great. The Maria Semple has been on my TBR list for a while, but the others sould great too. Will be waiting to hear what you think.

  25. November 12, 2012 10:56 am

    Have a great time!

  26. November 12, 2012 11:20 am

    Enjoy you’re beach visit. Thanks for hosting. Your books look interesting.

  27. November 12, 2012 11:28 am

    I hope you are having a great time at the beach, Indiscretion caught my eye.

  28. November 12, 2012 11:43 am

    I hope you’re having fun relaxing with family! I’m supposed to get the Dwarf book from LT too – it looks good!

    OOh, I hope you are enjoying your getaway. I am looking forward to reading Where’d you go Bernadette. I look forward to seeing what you think about the audio. That may be the way I go!

    Hi Kathy,

    Well! there are certainly some quirky books in your mailbox this week. I am not sure that any of them are particularly to my taste, although some of the cover art is outrageously funny, ‘Big Mean Mike’ especially!

    I hope that you enjoy getting together with friends and family and make the most of the break from routine.

    Thanks for stepping in again so soon as stand-by host, especially as it breaks into your holiday time.

    Being with my sisters and mom at the beach sounds HEAVENLY, and then to be able to read… I have Where’d you go Bernadette on my shelf, curious how you’ll enjoy it.

    Happy reading 😀

    Another yummy pile to read and listen to!

    I have InDiscretion but I am not anxious to read it!

  35. November 12, 2012 6:20 pm

    Enjoy your new “beach reads”, Kathy! 🙂

  36. November 12, 2012 7:58 pm

    I can’t wait to read your review of the Bernadette book on audio! I’ve read so many positive reviews so a positive audio would make me click and buy for sure!

  37. November 12, 2012 8:02 pm

    I read a lot of positive things about the Maria Semple book. Happy reading.
