Mailbox Monday

Monday Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted in August by Chick Loves Lit. Anyone can play along. Just leave a link to your MM at the hosting 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. *Penguin at mailbox, a copyrighted image, is used with permission from Club Penguin.

  1. Your mailbox turned up one great read after another!!!!

  2. You got Casting About - yay! I'm saving it to read in October.

    I loved The Lace Makers of Glenmara. Hope you do too.

  3. OOOOOh!!! Bury Your Dead...Penny...I bet that one will be good. I read Russian Winter..still need to post a reiew. I liked a very much...didn't love it, but it ended up with a punch. Sorta slow reading at times. Don't let that discourage you..the story is interesting.

  4. You got a lot of great books and from so many different sources. I'm doing the Stiltsville tour too. Happy reading!

  5. Great mailbox! I've got Russian Winter and I would love to get my hands on a copy of The Lace Makers of Glenmara! Thanks for visiting my mailbox and happy reading!

  6. Thanks for visiting my MM. You have some interesting books.

    I know what you mean about your oldest having a hard time finding the Kitchen. In truth mine would too; however, I still have hope. She is 19 so there does come a day soon that she'll have to find the kitchen. She's too busy with life to cook.

    I was only going to get one of the cookbooks but didn't seem right leaving her out.

  7. August was a good month! I have several of those on my wish list and can't wait to hear what you think of them. I haven't heard back on the Harris books but I'm so glad to see you got yours. Enjoy!!

  8. You have a very full mailbox! And so many great titles. It must be tough to choose which one to read next! Enjoy them all!

  9. Great mailbox! I loved Lacemakers of Glenmara. I really want to read Russian Winter!

  10. So glad to see you got Russian Winter! I know you'd been wanting it. Happy reading!

  11. Oh, and I'm glad to see you got The Lace Makers. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
