Monday Mailbox

I was a reading machine this week so even coming home to a couple of excellent looking new books doesn't make the wobbling stacks any more precarious. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Admission by Jean Hanff Korelitz came from Hachette.
With a child growing ever closer to the age where college applications count, I thought I should terrify myself with this fictional look at getting into an excellent college and everything at stake.

Every Day in Tuscany by Frances Mayes was a contest win from Bookin' With Bingo.
More of Bramasole, Mayes' new mountainside cottage, and the lovely folks in the village close by? Of course I was going to enter this one! And how exciting to have won!!!

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.


  1. I haven't read any of Frances Mayes' books, but they sound good. Enjoy!

    Diary of an Eccentric

  2. Oh, both of these sound fabulous! I loved the first Frances Mayes...and Admissions...sounds wonderful.

  3. I haven't read any Frances Mayes but I have them on my wish list. I did see the movie Under The Tuscan Sun and I loved it. I should read the books too.

  4. We are definitely providing work for the USPS, although I didn't get many books in the mail last week:

  5. Looks like a great book, can't wait to read your review.

  6. I'm listening to Mayes's A Year in the World right now and loving it. Enjoy her new one!

    Here is mine on Rose City Reader.

    Happy reading!

  7. looks like you got some great books...happy reading.

  8. I've read several of Frances Maye's books and found them wonderful. This one will I am sure be equal to the others.


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.
