Monday Mailbox

Since I was on vacation and had limited access to a computer, I didn't participate in this meme very consistently so this line-up is more than just one week's worth. It was absolutely wiggle-worthy to come home to the towers of books my husband had opened and piled around the kitchen for me. Almost makes the laundry piles and the drudgery of unpacking worth it. Click on the covers for more information on the books. Since there are so many, I'm not going to put my usual commentary about them here. All books were received from their respective publishers except for Literary Lust, which was a contest win from Martina at Virginie Says.

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.
