Monday Mailbox

I really didn't get as much reading accomplished this summer as I had hoped so I am accepting far fewer books for review until I get a handle on things. This made my mailbox a lot lighter this week but I did still get a pair of goodies. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Dreaming in Chinese by Deborah Fallows came from Michelle at Walker & Company.
A travel memoir of learning Mandarin and how learning the language gave her insight into the Chinese culture, this looks like just my thing.

A Curable Romantic by Joseph Skibell came from Algonquin Books.
A sweeping novel set throughout Eastern Eurpoe at the birth of psychoanalysis, this sounds involved and ambitious.

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 to see this month's host of Monday Mailbox and Kristi at The Story Siren who hosts In My Mailbox and enjoy seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. I also received a Curable romantic...though some of my pages were ripped.

    Happy reading

  2. Dreaming in Chinese sounds great! have a good week!

  3. I'll watch for your reviews!

  4. I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on Dreaming in Chinese. It looks good!

  5. A Curable Romantic seems to have it the blogworld last week. I love the cover!

    Enjoy your books!

  6. I've not heard of those books before, but they do sounds interesting :)

  7. These titles are new to me but sound very interesting. I hope you enjoy them both.

  8. A Curable Romantic was in my mailbox, too. I wish I'd had more reading time this summer myself. I'm not at work until Friday, and what am I doing? Reading blogs, so there you go. LOL


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.
