Monday Mailbox

It was a banner week for me this week in the mail. I got 6 different review books and a gorgeous set of bookmarks that I won from Nymeth at Things Mean a Lot. Here are the beautiful handmade bookmarks: . And of course, I have immediately started a couple of new books so that I had something to stash them in right away. :-)

As for the books, from Anna at Hatchette Books, I got
I Loved, I Lost, I made Spaghetti by Guilia Melucci. This one is one that I am giving away, winners to be chosen April 8th. If you want to enter the giveaway, click here and the last paragraph tells you all about it.

Hatchette also sent Do-Over: In Which a Forty-Eight-Year-Old Father of Three Returns to Kindergarten, Summer Camp, the Prom, and Other Embarrassments by Robin Hemley. I will be hosting a giveaway for this one in the not too distant future so keep your eyes peeled for that announcement too.

From Shelf Awareness, several book came in this week. They sent Sag Harbor by Colson Whitehead, .

Crazy For the Storm: A Memoir of Survival by Norman Ollestad,

Shanghai Girls by Lisa See,

and The Lace Makers of Glenmara by Heather Barbieri.

And finally, Paula at Author Marketing Experts sent me Life Is Like a Line by Cynthia Sabotka.

I have some really good reading in front of me this week! If you want to see what other people found in their mailboxes this past week, head on over to The Printed Page where Marcia hosts this fun meme every week.


  1. I'm seeing Lace Makers on a lot of posts today! Looks like you got some terrific books this week.

  2. Do-Over sounds like a blast - I can't imagine a 40-something going back to kindergarden or prom!

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