Mailbox Monday September 29

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog.   Things were back to normal last week.  I’m done with the doctor – for a few months anyway.  As far as books go, I actually broke even – I finished four books and got four new ones.  Here are the books that showed up in my mailbox:





What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Like the sound of Shadows in the Vineyard

    I wouldn’t even bother reading a book about self control, LOL!

    Well done on breaking even! I need a few weeks like that! All or Nothing looks like a good read, enjoy!

    That marshmallow test thing … it seems to be everywhere now.

    I saw the author of the Marshmallow Test on Colbert this week, he was interesting.

    I’ve been seeing Shadows in the Vineyard around for awhile now and I really want to read it. Enjoy your books!

    Nice mailbox…you get the most interesting books. I don’t know any of them, but the self-control one looks good.

    Shadows in the Vineyard looks good too.

    ENJOY your reading week.

    What an eclectic collection of books. Happy reading, Kathy!

    Brewster looks really interesting to me. I just moved from a town not that far away from Brewster, NY and my husband had a relative who used to live there before she passed. Having a storyline in 1968 (for a person of my age) makes this a must-read, thanks!
    By the way, I read the blurb for the Marshmallow test, and I would’ve taken the first choice–lol– wouldn’t have the patience to wait for two.

    Brewster looks very interesting to me, too. My favorite great aunt lived there while I was growing up.

    Hurray for breaking even and to a break from doctors!

    Hi Kathy,

    I am so pleased that you get to be free of the doctor for a decent period of time, you must feel so relieved and free!

    It would be so good to break even on my books read and gained, either that or I need to have several lifetimes in which to complete the challenge!

    I am not a huge non-fiction reader, unless I come across fantastic looking ‘coffee table’ books, which can be browsed rather than read.

    I do hope that you enjoy all your great new addition though and look forward to catching some of your reviews of them.

    Enjoy your week,

    I have to say I was well saddened to read the small print of the marshmallow test, I was so hoping it would be a great work of fiction!

    Fabulous books. Shadows in the Vineyard and The Marshmallow Test need to go on my wish list.

    Thanks for visiting The Busy Mom’s Daily.

    Happy reading 😀

    Looking forward to your reviews of these books. I’m just starting a week of appointments. Not getting many steps lately due to unexplained stiffness in all of my joints! It came on really fast last week. I don’t get sick or sore joints as a rule so I headed to the MD today. Hope it’s not a medical mystery, LOL! Have a good week, Kathy 🙂

  25. September 29, 2014 7:39 pm

    All or Nothing sounds riveting, Kathy! I hope you enjoy each of these books, and look forward to your reviews.

  26. September 29, 2014 7:57 pm

    Oh wow, all are new to me this week –enjoy

  27. September 29, 2014 8:51 pm

    Glad your doctoring is done! I’ve had Brewster on my stacks for awhile. Have a great week.

  28. September 29, 2014 10:33 pm

    I hope you stay well for a long while. All your books are new to me. Shadows in the Vineyard looks good. Enjoy your week!

    I got The Marshmallow Test at BEA, but have yet to read it. It’s my kind of book, though. 🙂

  30. September 30, 2014 5:34 pm

    The Marshmallow Test sounds like a book I would like. I’d wait and get two marshmallows!

  31. September 30, 2014 9:47 pm

    Shadows in the Vineyard sounds super interesting!

    I’ve heard about THE MARSHMALLOW TEST and am curious about it. Anxious to hear what you think!

  34. October 1, 2014 6:45 pm

    I think you’ll like Brewster. I read it last year and thought it was slow to get moving but I was hooked by the end.

    I always discover new books in your mailbox. Enjoy!
