Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday November 16

The nosy part of me just loves seeing what new books everyone else got, so Mailbox Monday is one of my favorite memes.  Thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for hosting it each week.

I actually made a dent in my TBR pile last week!  This is what I found in my mailbox:


What new books came into your home last week?

    Congratulations on making a dent in your TBR pile that’s a great accomplishment. Hope you enjoy the newest additions 🙂

    Fast Food Nation looks like a monster of a book 🙂

  3. November 16, 2009 6:43 am

    Wow, that is one ginormous book! Great news you’re making progress on the tbr pile! Wish I could say the same…

    That’s a lovely cover design for Fast Food Nation. It’s a great book- horrifying, but great.

    Looks like we both had a slow week! Mine was much needed. I am so excited to read Hummingbirds.

  6. November 16, 2009 8:09 am

    Fast Food Nation was an interesting read. Enjoy 🙂

    Hummingbirds interests me!

    I can’t wait to hear about FAST FOOD NATION! You’ll probably have a big week this week!

  9. November 16, 2009 8:20 am

    I still need to read Fast Food Nation. I know it ‘s going to disturb the to-go burgers right out of me, but I’m ok with that.

  10. November 16, 2009 8:48 am

    Oooh, I see a chunkster. I had no idea that book was so huge. I really want to hear what you have to say about that one.

    A few years ago I read Fast Food Nation and found it to be The Jungle for our generation.

    Congrats on making a dent in your tbr pile. I’m definitely trying to do the same. My mailbox has slowed down considerably and will stay that way until I can clear out some of the books I have piling up.

    Very curious about Fast Food Nation! How will that hold up against your cookie recipes? Total opposite ideas, with similar, hip-widening effects! Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog!

    Progress on the TBR pile is always good 🙂 I am slacking behind

  15. November 16, 2009 11:25 am

    I bet FAST FOOD NATION is interesting (scary/interesting!). I read SUPER SIZE ME several years ago; what a wake up call!

    Enjoy your new books, Kathy.

  16. November 16, 2009 11:45 am

    I wonder why Fast Food Nation looks so large, the copy I had was not even close in size to what you have there. I enjoyed it though. It was a real eye opener.

  17. November 16, 2009 11:48 am

    I’ve heard Fast Food Nation is really good. I’ll be curious to read your thoughts on it, Kathy.

  18. November 16, 2009 11:56 am

    I received hummingbirds as well.

  19. November 16, 2009 12:15 pm

    Both of those books look good, and it’s nice to have slow mail weeks once in a while in order to catch up.

  20. November 16, 2009 12:32 pm

    Wow, that edition of “Fast Food Nation” is incredibly huge. Is it a large print edition, or something? I ask because the first edition paperback isn’t nearly so large. In any case, it’s a great book. You’ll never look at fast food the same way again. 🙂

  21. November 16, 2009 12:53 pm

    Slow weeks are good. Enjoy your new books!


  22. November 16, 2009 1:01 pm

    I am like you, I just love to see what everyone else has got during the week. I feel like we all meet at the post office with our bag of books!

  23. November 16, 2009 1:12 pm

    Congrats on getting through your TBR pile a bit. 🙂

  24. November 16, 2009 1:53 pm

    yowza – I didn’t know Fast Food Nation was such a THICK book.

  25. November 16, 2009 2:37 pm

    Yeah Fast Food Nation is huge.

  26. November 16, 2009 2:41 pm

    Looks like a couple of good ones. Enjoy!

  27. November 16, 2009 2:45 pm

    Fast Food Nation is one thick book! They both sound good. Congratulations on making progress on your tbr pile! Mine just grows and grows….

  28. November 16, 2009 3:48 pm

    I got Hummingbirds a bit ago as well. I think it will be my next read and I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of it as well. If it’s ok with you, I will link to your review on my site.

  29. November 16, 2009 6:31 pm

    No books for me this week, but I did get a few books to give as holiday gifts.
    Enjoy your new books and happy reading!

  30. November 16, 2009 6:56 pm

    Yay on making a dent in your TBR pile, I’m still working hard on mine!

    Happy reading! 🙂

  31. November 16, 2009 7:33 pm

    Hummingbirds looks like a good one to me Kathy!

  32. November 16, 2009 7:44 pm

    I hope you enjoy the Schlosser book. I read it a couple of years ago and it’s a favorite!

  33. November 17, 2009 12:26 am

    I look forward to reading your thoughts on Fast Food Nation.

  34. November 17, 2009 6:47 am

    Looking forward to hearing about Hummingbirds. Have a good week!

  35. November 18, 2009 8:19 pm

    Love that Hummingbird cover

  36. November 18, 2009 8:51 pm

    Hummingbirds sounds interesting! Enjoy your books, Kathy!
