Mailbox Monday August 24

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.  These are the books I found in my mailbox last week:

    I love how you always give me an idea of what the next bookmark will look like in advance 😀 As usual, I love it. And Godmother is a book I’ve been meaning to read. I hope you enjoy it.

  2. August 24, 2009 7:58 am

    I’m expecting Everything Sucks soon. Hope we both like it 🙂

    The Melissa Gilbert one sounds good.

    Enjoy your mailbox!

    The book mark is beautiful. I must be missing out on this somewhere. I shall have to investigate. I really want to read Prairie Tale.

  4. August 24, 2009 8:18 am

    great list of books and I love the summer theme to the bookmark! happy reading.

  5. August 24, 2009 8:21 am

    Great pile of books there!! I want to read that Godmother book too, it looks great! And that is a very cute bookmark.

  6. August 24, 2009 8:25 am

    I love the bookmark. And by the way we loved the movie Julie and Julia yesterday too!

  7. August 24, 2009 8:36 am

    Sounds like a great batch – especially “The Resurrectionist.” But my vote for best book title goes to “Everything Sucks”!

  8. August 24, 2009 8:45 am

    I’m waiting for my ‘Everything Sucks’ copy too, sounds really good.
    I want Godmother too 🙂
    Great books Kathy.

    Detectives Don’t Wear Seatbelts sounds like a fun read. I like that title! You got a nice batch of diversity this time. Have a good week and enjoy your books.

  10. August 24, 2009 9:27 am

    Lots of good titles there Kathy. The one that intrigues me is Detectives Don’t Wear Seatbelts. Sounds like a fun detective story.

  11. August 24, 2009 9:45 am

    Those look like great books. You have a fun week of reading ahead of you. Can you get that many books read in one week, or do the books carry over and you have a stack a mile high waiting? The only books I got in the mail last week were ones I ordered. But I’m having fun reading those!

    This looke like a great assortment of books! I really like the sound of that Melissa Gilbert book.

  13. August 24, 2009 10:03 am

    The Melissa Gilbert book has been on my radar, just because I literally grew up with that show. Now my daughter has the first three years on DVD and is obsessed with them too. One thing I have to say…Melissa certainly blossomed from those earlier awkward years!

  14. August 24, 2009 10:09 am

    Oh, I loved the Resurrectionist! It is very weird, but I like weird! Hope you enjoy it.

    Melissa Gilbert’s book I enjoyed as well. Though I do wish she’d spent more time on her Little House years.

    Your others are all new to me. Hope you enjoy them!

  15. August 24, 2009 10:41 am

    Love the bookmark! I have a few of them and boy, does she have talent!

  16. August 24, 2009 10:42 am

    I’d love to read Melissa Gilberts book, you got some really nice books this week!

  17. August 24, 2009 11:28 am

    The books look great — there are a couple that I’m envious of. But the bookmark is spectacular! Enjoy!

    Looks like a mailbox filling week for you! As usual 🙂

  19. August 24, 2009 11:59 am

    Hi Kathy, had you ever shown a photo of your bookshelves? You must have one heck of a library.

  20. August 24, 2009 12:23 pm

    Lovely bookmark 🙂
    And some cool books in there. Enjoy

  21. August 24, 2009 12:34 pm

    Nice variety of books, Kathy.

    I really like the look of that cookbook, America’s Most Wanted Recipes. I just watched a video on Amazon of the author talking about his book. It looks really good.

  22. August 24, 2009 12:36 pm

    What an assorted collection. Like the colourful books!

    Mondays: What’s up?

  23. August 24, 2009 12:48 pm

    Love the bookmark, and I’m jealous that you got The Godmother and The Resurectionist….enjoy

  24. August 24, 2009 2:37 pm

    Kathy, Please come by BOOKIN’ WITH BINGO as I have an award for you. Thank you!

  25. August 24, 2009 2:57 pm

    I enjoyed The Godmother. Unholy Mischief sounds a bit mischievous 🙂

    I am now following your blog because it seems I am always following your comments (you’re one of the first to comment:) Have a great Monday!

    Awesome list – How do you get so many books?

  27. August 24, 2009 3:52 pm

    Godmother looks really good, I really want to read that book. Hope you enjoy it and I’ll be looking forward to your review.

    The Resurrectionist is a new one for me. It looks interesting, I’ll have to check that out.

    Prairie Tale looks like a really interesting book. I look forward to hearing what you thought about it.

  29. August 24, 2009 4:51 pm

    LOVE the bookmark! And I’m eyeing that PRAIRIE TALE book – I think it’s a must read!

  30. August 24, 2009 5:19 pm

    It looks like you received some great books! I was a big fan of Little House so Melissa Gibert’s book may interest me; however, I do have to say that I enjoyed here sister, Sarah, on Roseanne much more – must be because it was comedy.

  31. August 24, 2009 5:22 pm

    I’m looking forward to hear what you thin about these books, especially “everything Sucks” and “The Resurrectionist”! 😀

  32. August 24, 2009 6:20 pm

    Everything Sucks except my bookmark, right? LOL!!! I can’t wait to see what you think of Melissa Gilbert’s book. I covet that one.

  33. August 24, 2009 6:37 pm

    Wow, you really raked them in this week! Fantastic! I read all of the Little House on the Prairie books but I had no idea Melissa Gilbert wrote something else. I’m interested to see what you think of it! Detectives Don’t Wear Seatbelts sounds like a fun read and Godmother< I've noticed is very popular.
    Would you mind telling me what the August Bookmark refers to? Sorry! Still learning things here!
    Enjoy your new books, Kathy! Happy reading!

  34. August 24, 2009 7:48 pm

    Great books! I love the bookmark. 🙂

  35. August 24, 2009 8:15 pm

    What a lovely haul! Love the bookmark!
    I enjoyed reading Godmother! I look forward to reading your review on it.

  36. August 24, 2009 8:27 pm

    That August bookmark is sooo cute!!

  47. August 26, 2009 10:46 pm

    Prairie Tale looks like a great book. This is the first I’ve seen about it, so I’ll be anxious to read your review.

  48. August 27, 2009 10:44 am

    Lots of good stuff! I bought Prairie Tale for my mom but she hasn’t read it yet. Isn’t this month’s bookmark from Jennifer fantastic! I love it!

  49. August 27, 2009 4:49 pm

    Great stuff! I read Godmother a while back and enjoyed it.

  50. August 29, 2009 12:07 pm

    I reviewed Melissa Gilbert’s book over on my blog, if you want to pop over and take a look. It was very good, different!
    And I too am intrigued by the bookmark! Very cute! I looked on the Literate Housewife’s blog, but couldn’t see a bookmark club…inquiring (nosy) minds want to know???


  51. August 31, 2009 1:57 pm

    That’s a cute bookmark! Can’t wait to see what you think of Everything Sucks. I don’t know when I’ll be reading it but I’m looking forward to it.
