Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Anyone can play along. Just leave a link to your MM at Marcia's blog and follow the links to other blogs to see what books are finding their way to mailboxes around the world. Caveat: participation in MM can cause your tbr list to grow exponentially.

As you are reading this, we are on our way to Maine ( day 3 in the car with just me and the big guy aka hubby, OY! ) to stay with friends for several days before heading back to MA for Thanksgiving on the Cape (Cod). Lisa in Fl, Kathy in SC, Rebecca in NC, Jenners and Caite in NJ, and my "baby chick" Debbie in NY; Did you see me waving to you from the highway?

Posting will be a little skimpy as I only have a few things scheduled. But I am looking for some feedback on my post from the 12th and another post is about my upcoming month long trip to Russia. A couple of Show Me 5 Saturdays and a review round out the month. December 1st kicks off with the start of a contest followed by another contest a week later. Get out your lucky charms!

I hope to get some good pictures in downtown Plymouth for anyone who might have an interest and has never seen Plymouth Rock or the Mayflower replica. There will most likely be a lot of tourists in town as Plymouth is the birthplace of Thanksgiving. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

Okay, enough babbling and onto the mailbox. Here's what showed up Wednesday at my front door and Thursday in the mail just in time to pack a few extras in the suitcase. Total excitement!

From Hachette Group Hispanic Month Celebration : 5 books won at Libby's Library includes :

Zumba by Beto Perez

Amigoland by Oscar Casares

Damas, Dramas and Ana Ruiz by Belinda Acosta

Tell me Something True by Leila Cobo ~ can't wait, the reveiws I have read were fantastic

Evenings at the Argentine Club by Julia Amante~ really looking forward to this one too

From Harper Collins for review: The Body in the Sleigh by Katherine Hall Page ~ Another big anticipation factor book. I love her Faith Fairchild series; appropriately enough they are set in MA and ME.

From J.B. Stanley, a copy of Stirring up Strife for review. This is a new cozy series for J.B. and I can't wait to read it.
