Monday Mailbox

Not too many books are coming in right now as I try to crawl out from the previous few months' deluge. But the one that did come is much appreciated! This past week's mailbox arrival:

The Irresistible Henry House by Lisa Grunwald came from Random House thanks to Trish at TLC Book Tours.
This one about a "practice" baby who was raised by a group of women taking home ec in university has long been on my wish list.

Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger by Lee Smith came from Algonquin
I discovered Lee Smith way back in high school (and I'm not sure if that makes me feel old or if it should make her feel old) but I have always appreciated her lovely writing so I am looking forward to this latest story collection.
As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit The Bluestocking Guide as she is hosting this month's Mailbox Monday and have fun 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.
