Monday Mailbox

The mailbox was good to me again this week despite my complete inability to finish anything I start right now. It's good to know that everything will be waiting for me when I get my reading mojo back. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

The Vera Wright Trilogy by Elizabeth Jolley came from Rachel at Meryl Zegarek Public Relations, Inc..
I read Elizabeth Jolley's The Sugar Mother many years ago. After hearing that she is one of an online friends' favorite author, I keep meaning to go back and read her again. This largely autobiographical trilogy gives me that chance.

Just Don't Fall by Josh Sundquist was a contest win from Wendy at Caribousmom for her Reading for a Cure Challenge which benefits the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. You can enter to win too by joining the challenge or sponsoring someone who is participating.
The author lost a leg to cancer as a child going on to become a Paralympic downhill skier. This is his memoir. Reading about amazing people is always a wonderful experience I expect this to be nothing short of that.

This One Is Mine by Maria Semple came from Gigi.
Aside from wanting to eat the goody on the cover, this take on Hollywood, infidelities, and New Age mumbo-jumbo also looks delicious.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Marcia at The Printed Page and enjoy seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.

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.
