Mailbox Monday July 20

A big thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for hosting this fun meme. Check out her blog to see what everyone else got last week or to play along.  I’m a little embarrassed to post this week, but I’m going to anyway.  This is what I found in my mailbox last week:

    what a pretty bookmark. Lovely books Kathy. I really want to read The Lace Makers of Glenmara. Hope you enjoy all.

    Why are you embarrassed to post? I only got 2 books last week and I was very happy. lol.. 🙂

    What a fab pile of books! I’ve read The Beach House by Jane green (was quite good), but the others I haven’t heard of so will go and look them up. See if any take my fancy. Don’t be embarrassed – I am a bit of a bookaholic myself and seem to be adding to my pile of tbr list every week! Enjoy!

  4. July 20, 2009 7:39 am

    Holy Cow!! You’re gonna be a busy lil bee! Can’t wait to read your reviews!

  5. July 20, 2009 7:41 am

    Wow! You got some books 🙂

    I LOVE that bookmark!

  6. July 20, 2009 7:58 am

    Lordy, the books are flowing at your house. It’d be hard to choose which one to read next. Are you a one-book reader or a multiple-books-in-progress, all at the same time reader?

  8. July 20, 2009 8:18 am

  15. July 20, 2009 9:12 am

    Great list of books. I’ll be reading Lace Makers soon. Enjoy all the books!

  16. July 20, 2009 9:21 am

    From looking at your list, I think Monday must have been a holiday. Or maybe just a day off for delivery people. lol I like that you have lots of new books. It means you are going to introduce me to some great new stories.

  17. July 20, 2009 9:23 am

    Oooh, I love the July bookmark! Can’t wait to get mine.

  18. July 20, 2009 9:34 am

    So many books! Happy reading.

    If you’d like another book, drop a link at Black-Eyed Susan’s Little Lov’n Monday. You pick your price.

    I never know whether to be envious of your stacks or glad that I’m not bringing that many books into my house every week. 🙂

  20. July 20, 2009 9:44 am
