Mailbox Monday October 12

Mailbox Monday is one of my favorite memes, so I’m sending a big thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for hosting it. 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:

    So jealous about Traveling with Pomegranates! I’ve heard it’s wonderful!

  2. October 12, 2009 7:16 am

    Wow, how many pages are there in Angels? That one alone should keep you busy for at least a couple of days. Congrats on scoring The Smart One and the Pretty One.

    Have a great week and happy reading!

    I have several of these too! Isn’t it great to have such a wide variety to choose from? I tend to stick to only a couple genres but occasionally something sounds so good I step outside of them.

    Hope you enjoy!

  4. October 12, 2009 8:12 am

    That is a good variety of books. Have a great reading week!

    Mondays: Mused/Amused etc etc

    Looks like you got some great books. I’ve been wanting to read Looking for Alaska.

  6. October 12, 2009 8:17 am

    You received some great books. I have Pomegranates on my wishlist. I will be looking forward to your review. Have a great week!

  7. October 12, 2009 8:21 am

    Nice stack of books. I really want to read John Green book one of these days. I’ve been paging through Shelf Discovery and will probably pass it along to my sis who has 3 kids ages 9-16. I know she’d love it. Now I need to look up Angels. : )

  8. October 12, 2009 8:27 am

    I have Looking For Alaska. I won it recently at Fluttering Butterflies. Angels has also caught my eye.

  9. October 12, 2009 8:38 am

    Wow….most if this are totally new to me titles; i hope you enjoy them Kathy.

  10. October 12, 2009 8:41 am

    Traveling with Pomegranates sounds like a wonderful mother-daughter travel memoir. I will look forward to your review of it.

  11. October 12, 2009 9:18 am

    Jealous of this mailbox! Shelf Discovery is particularly intriguing to me. Looking forward to your thoughts.

    here’s my mailbox:

  12. October 12, 2009 9:26 am

    Congrats on your contest win. I haven’t heard of a lot of these with the exception of Looking for Alaska. I must be slacking.

  13. October 12, 2009 9:34 am

    Enjoy all of your new books Kathy! I should be receiving The Smart One and the Pretty One soon also.

  14. October 12, 2009 10:30 am

    Angels looks gigantic!

  15. October 12, 2009 10:50 am

    Lots of good stuff Kathy. You sure had a lot of wins come in -that’s awesome.

  16. October 12, 2009 11:44 am

    I like the title Traveling with Promegrantes. Yesterday I was in the bookstore-looking for a book to take on my flight and could not come up with a thing.

  17. October 12, 2009 11:49 am

    I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Looking for Alaska. What a great stack of books for the week!

    Here’s my Monday Round Up.

  23. October 12, 2009 12:34 pm

    Oops. “hope” not “hop”….. 🙂

  24. October 12, 2009 12:50 pm

    What a great looking mailbox. I have a few of those myself (Shelf Discovery and Traveling With Pomegranates) and want a few more (Up For Renewal and Looking for Alaska). Enjoy your new stash!

  25. October 12, 2009 1:44 pm

    Traveling with Pomegranates sounds great and I like Sue Monk Kidd’s work. I haven’t heard of many of these titles.

  26. October 12, 2009 1:59 pm

    What a great mailbox this week! I am intrigued by both “Shelf Discovery” and “Up For Renewal”!

  27. October 12, 2009 2:09 pm

    Great Shelf Kathy! Traveling With Pomegranates and Shelf Discovery sound wonderful. You did good on blog wins this week!

  28. October 12, 2009 3:44 pm

    Angels looks like quite the chunkster. I have been in a bit of a reading funk as I got sidetracked with blog update stuff and am just now getting back into the swing of things.

  29. October 12, 2009 5:22 pm

    I chekced out Shelf Discovery – this looks like a great read! I love books on books! Angels looks wonderful too! Happy reading!

  30. October 12, 2009 5:33 pm

    Still winning so many books! I love it!

  31. October 12, 2009 6:25 pm

    i’m eager to read the new sue monk kidd–i think it’s a memoir, if memory serves! i’m all over that genre.

    i also read ‘up for renewal’–it was quirky and fun…but my life seems thankfully dull compared to hers! 🙂 enjoy the books.

    I received the The Ring of Fire as well. They all look great but especially Traveling with Pomegranates.

  33. October 12, 2009 7:42 pm

    Congrats on all your contest wins! They all sounds good!

    Happy reading!

    PS: Hope you enjoy reading Looking for Alaska as much as I do! 🙂

  34. October 12, 2009 7:49 pm

    Ok, that Angels book is huge! Terrific mailbox though.

  35. October 12, 2009 8:17 pm

    I’ve heard such great things about John Green’s books. I look forward to hearing what you think of Looking for Alaska.

    Enjoy all your new books, Kathy!

  36. October 12, 2009 8:22 pm

    more great finds for you! 🙂

  37. October 12, 2009 8:47 pm

    I want to read John Green!
    You have Sue Monk Kidd’s book that i will buy someday 🙂

  38. October 12, 2009 8:56 pm

    Three books won in one week – Wow! I’m anxious to hear what you think of Traveling with Pomegranates.

  39. October 12, 2009 9:15 pm

    The ANGELS one caught my eye too!! You’re just going to have to put that one on the top of your review pile so we can hear what you think of it!

  40. October 12, 2009 10:16 pm

    I received the Angels book today and it is really neat! Not at all what I was expecting, but I can see this as a great Christmas gift for a few family members.

    🙂 Wendi

  41. October 12, 2009 10:42 pm

    Kathy, these are all new-to-me authors but they all look good (don’t all books? LOL!). Happy reading!

  42. October 12, 2009 11:01 pm

    That’s a great selection! I have read “Looking for Alaska” and really enjoyed it; I hope you will too! And I can’t wait to read what you think of Up for Renewal, it looks interesting.

  43. October 13, 2009 7:38 am

    You had a nice week. Enjoy!

  44. October 13, 2009 7:53 am

    Some yummy books – I’ll be curious to hear what you think of Sue Monk Kidd’s. I read “Up For Renewal” and really liked it (full disclosure: Cathy and I have the same editor:) ). The scene where she meets her mother-in-law is priceless!
    Many thanks for your comment this morning!

  45. October 13, 2009 10:26 am

    Awesome stack of books!! Enjoy them 🙂

    Your stack looks so good. Happy reading.

  48. October 14, 2009 12:21 am

    Congrats on a great mailbox!

  49. October 14, 2009 2:53 pm

    I hope Angels is an audio, because that is huge!
    Nice mailbox B.

  50. October 15, 2009 1:36 pm

    What a great-sounding assortment of books! Up for Renewal is on my shelf, too. Happy reading!
