Monday Mailbox

This was a much subdued week for me on the book acquisitions front. I know I generally don't post books I've bought so you all have no way of knowing but usually my book buying trumps the numbers in the mailbox. Well, this week, I only found two books in my mailbox and I didn't buy a single book. But a much less acquisitive week is a good thing for me right now as I'm scurrying to meet a deadline that seems to be looming suddenly. Anyway, here's what I did find in the mailbox this week:

Ferris Beach by Jill McCorkle.
This came from the great folks at Algonquin Books. When I opened the package, I smiled as I pulled the book out. Not because I don't want to read the book (I definitely do). But because I am such a sucker for Algonquin books that I think I already own almost their entire backlist. And yes, this is one that I already own (in hardback no less!). This one is very pretty though and will ensure that I actually read it sooner rather than later.

The Resurrectionist by Jack O'Connell
Another one that came from the amazing Algonquin Books people, this one is likely to stretch my reading a bit. My husband read the back and thought it would definitely be up his alley, especially the comic book world aspect.

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. I need to find out about Ferris Beach. Enjoy your books!

  2. The title of Ferris Beach is enough to catch my interest!

  3. The Resurrectionist looks awesome. I'm going to look that one up.

  4. I've seen Ferris Beach turning up on a few blogs. It really sounds good.

  5. Interesting books, I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on them.

    Happy reading! You can see my mailbox here.

  6. These sound interesting. Happy reading!

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
