Mailbox Monday November 16

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia and now hosted on its own blog.    It may not look like it, but I had a great week in books last week.  I received two books and read four books!  Two of them were kids’ books, but they still reduced my TBR pile, so I’m counting them.  I found these books in my mailbox last week:



What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Both totally unknown to me. Look forward to your thoughts on these two.

    Read more books than you received? Sounds like a great week to me! 😉

    That’s awesome! Reading four books! I would count children’s books, too! I love the sound of the Fox And The Star!

    I looked at the Fox and the Star- does that fox image on the cover really have a striped tail? That’s wrong! why is his tail stripey?

    Four books- wow, that is an accomplishment!

    It is great when we can reduce the TBR pile! Congrats! Enjoy your new books, which are new to me, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    The Last Thousand sounds really interesting, Kathy. I am not familiar with the Marefat School. It sounds like a wonderful program. I hope its fate is a good one, but likely that won’t be the case.

    Enjoy your new books, Kathy!

    A great reading week for you!

    Yay- congrats on making a dent in the tbr! Both of these books are new to me. Hope you enjoy them and have a great week!

    These are both new to me. Happy reading!

    The Fox and the Star sounds like a good one, and I just love those classic books with those designed covers.

    Happy reading 🙂

    Yay on reducing your TBR pile! I hope to do some of that this week. Happy reading!

    I managed to read 3 books while on my holiday, what a joy!

    I didn’t get many books either last week. I bet things will slow down as the holidays approach!

    Enjoy your books! It’s always nice when the number you finish is higher than the number you receive.

    Kids’ books totally count – good for you!

    While The Fox and the Star sounds very sweet, The Last Thousand is what really interests me. Enjoy!

    Hi Kathy,

    If the books you receive are ones which you are going to enjoy, then the quantity doesn’t really matter, does it? Although if you then manage to read more than the number of new books arriving, that’s even better!

    Whilst neither of your books this week really appeal to me, I do like the cover art for both, perhaps that of ‘The Fox and The Star’ the most.

    I hope that you enjoy both books and that you have a great reading week 🙂

    Love the titles of both books.

    ENJOY your week.

    I hadn’t heard of these books before. The Last Thousand sounds fabulous.

    The Fox and the Star just won the Waterstones Book of the Year award, if you’re interested in award-type news.
