Mailbox Monday

January 26, 2009


It’s time for another Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia of The Printed Page.  Last week was a wonderful week in books for me.  Here’s what I got:




  • De Marco Empire by J. Lou McCartney from the author




What books came into your house last week?


I’m headed to Alabama to help my mom celebrate her 82nd birthday.  My parents don’t have interent and I won’t have Carl and his phone with me, so I may not be on line at all.  I will try to check my email, but won’t be on Google Reader or Twitter.  (I have posts scheduled to publish, so you’ll still be hearing from me, barring a glitch in WordPress.)  I’m taking Drood, Speaking For Myself, Very Valentine, Thirteen Reasons Why, and Who By Fire with me.  Talk about ambitious!

    I look forward to reading you thoughts on “Kill For Me” by Karen Rose. I’ve heard bunches of great things about this author! 🙂

    Enjoy your trip to Alabama. Sometimes it’s nice to be “unconnected.”

  3. January 26, 2009 7:51 am

    I hope you write a post about your mom for this week’s Thursday’s Thoughts.

    Have a safe trip.

    So glad you got FIREFLY LANE.

    Happy birthday to your mom! You got some nice books this week and you might find some reading time once Twitter is turned off!!

  6. January 26, 2009 9:33 am

    The book I’m reading is set in Alabama. I really want to read Firefly Lane… Have a fun trip; Happy Bday to Mom.

    You got some great books this week! I got Firefly Lane last week and it looks good. My mailbox was empty except for books for my husband. It’s a good thing as I need to catch up! How did you get the Shelf Awareness T-shirt?!

    Have a wonderful trip to Alabama and Happy Birthday to your mom! I’ll be looking forward to your review of Very Valentine. I need to read that soon as well.

    Very ambitious indeed! Can’t wait to hear what you think about Very Valentine. I’m really looking forward to reading it.

    Firefly Lane was the first book of Kristin Hannah’s that I read, and I really liked it.

    A Shelf Awareness Tee – That’s so cool! Great lot of books too, I really want to read ‘The Long Fall’ I enjoy Mosley’s writing style.

    Have fun in Alabama, looks like you may have to hit a bookstore while you’re there considering you’re only taking 5 books! 😉

  11. January 26, 2009 10:54 am

    Have a great trip, say hi to Alabama for me!

    I can’t wait to see what you think of 13 Reasons Why.

  12. January 26, 2009 10:55 am

    Have fun! When you get back, I tagged you for The Bookshelf Meme, but it won’t be posting until Wednesday.

  14. January 26, 2009 11:10 am

    Have a great trip! I also got The Long Fall and Galway Bay (and Firefly Lane came to me last week). Looks like we’ll be reading some of the same books in the next couple of months 🙂

  15. January 26, 2009 11:17 am

    Have a great trip! Happy birthday to your mom!

    Check out my mailbox!

    Happy Birthday to your mom. Have a great trip. I am half finished with Who by Fire and I am toting Drood along also.

    Have a great time, you have a lot of great reading to keep you busy. 🙂

    You had a good week! Have a fun trip visiting your mom! I got The Long Fall and Galway Bay this week also.

  19. January 26, 2009 1:32 pm

    Excited about Galway Bay. I’ve stopped looking at Shelf Awareness for the time being until I get my pile down. Way too tempting.

  20. January 26, 2009 1:36 pm

    Safe and fun trip, Kathy. you will love Very Valentine! I couldn’t put it down. Firefly Lane is very good too, don’t forget the kleenex box. Galway Bay is just begging to be read with that gorgeous cover art. Happy birthday to your mom.

  21. January 26, 2009 3:10 pm

    You got Firefly Lane! Great! I was going to offer you mine, if it didn’t arrive. I can’t wait to hear about Galway Bay. It sounds fabulous and the cover is breathtaking.

  22. January 26, 2009 3:42 pm

    I gotta say that Galaway Bay is one of my most anticipated this year!

  23. January 26, 2009 3:44 pm

    Great pile of books-looks like a lot of us will be getting Galway Bay. Have a safe trip and enjoy your time with your mom.

  24. January 26, 2009 4:12 pm

    Yummy books! I got my copy of The Little Giant of Aberdeen County in my mailbox today, so I’m really excited about that. Enjoy your trip! Be safe!

  25. January 26, 2009 4:32 pm

    Have a great time with your mom in Alabama. I just started in on Drood today. I am setting myself a goal of a 100 pages a day. I don’t want to be reading it forever. I got Galway Bay last week as well. Good luck with your reading.

  26. January 26, 2009 5:37 pm

    You are ambitious taking Drood; it intimidates me! Can’t wait to hear what you think about Galway Bay…I got it too and can’t wait to read it!

  27. January 26, 2009 7:30 pm

    Sometimes the “slow down” we get from not having computer access is nice. Enjoy yourself.

    I am waiting for my copy of Kill for Me. I just finished Scream for Me and loved it and have Die for Me on reserve at our library!

    My list is here:

  30. January 26, 2009 9:30 pm

    Have a good trip! I’m looking forward to hearing what you think about Drood and 13 Reasons Why.

  31. January 26, 2009 9:57 pm

    I just received Galway Bay today – what a beautiful cover. Looking forward to it!

  32. January 27, 2009 12:17 am

    Wow, Kathy, what a haul! I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of Drood. Have a great trip and happy birthday to your mum!

  33. January 27, 2009 3:21 am

    Happy reading Kathy! Sounds like you received some wonderful books! I also received Firefly Lane, and I’m thinking of seeing if Miriam still wants reviewers for Galaway Bay as it sounds very interesting.

    🙂 Wendi

    I recieved Wonderous Strange by Lesley Livingston. Great haul!

    What part of Alabama are you going to be in? Have fun!
