Monday Mailbox

I am on vacation right now but have added books that have arrived in my mailbox as I could based on my long-suffering husband's intelligence from home. So if I have misattributed who sent me something, I apologize and feel free to note my mistake in the comments.

Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner.
This book came from Simon and Schuster, my illustrious former employer (not that I worked for Atria when I worked there many a moon ago, mind you--I worked for Prentice Hall, which has since been sold to another publisher). I do still love to read their books so I am always glad to get something in the mail from them. And as for this one specifically, I have enjoyed other books by Jennifer Weiner and think this one looks delicious too.

Mercury in Retrograde by Paula Froelich
Another from Simon and Schuster, this looks like a delightful and fun book about three women who end up in a New York tenement together, befriend each other, and go on to right their lives. Feel good summer fare, what could be better?

Nothing But Ghosts by Beth Kephart
Amy from My Friend Amy was running a book drive to get as many people as she could to buy this book. I'm ever happy to buy books and the description of this one sounded good so buy it I did.

As always, if you'd like to check out the goodies that other people found in their mailboxes, check out The Printed Page where Marcia kindly hosts this meme every week.


  1. Kristen, hope you are having agreat vacation.

    Mercury in Retrograde has a cool cover; i'd like to read that one. Enjoy!

  2. Hope you're having a good time! I have the Weiner and Mercury books, too, so I'm looking forward to your thoughts.

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
