Mailbox Monday

September 19, 2010

September is really passing by quickly – I can’t believe this is the third week already!  Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of The Printed Page and is now on tour.  I’m thrilled to be the host of this fun meme for the month of September!   According to Marcia,  “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

This is what I found in my mailbox last week:






What books did came into your home last week?  Here’s the link up if you’re participating this week:

    Wonderful books for you again. I didn’t know Dennis Lehane wrote another book. 🙂

    Congrats on the win for The Bride Collector and Diamond Ruby! You’re on a roll 🙂

  3. September 19, 2010 6:32 am

    So jealous of the singed bookplate from Adriana! I think you are going to love DIAMOND RUBY!

  4. September 19, 2010 7:24 am

    I can’t believe how fast September is going too!!! Your books look great and I love that bookplate 😀

    Looks like some great books to read. I’ve read The Bride Collector and enjoyed it, hope you do too.

    Great week of mail! I want to read Diamond Ruby and Moonlight Mile. Oh gosh – just looked at the list again. There are more that I’m interested in!

  8. September 19, 2010 8:38 am

    It’s so funny to see “September is passing by quickly” right after I saw your post and was thinking – wow, is it Monday already?!! :–)

  9. September 19, 2010 9:04 am

    Wow! At least one book a day, almost every day of the week – I have to learn how to do that!

    For now, check out my first contest win and other treasures:

  10. September 19, 2010 9:25 am

    Oh, I want to read Diamond Ruby! Wasn’t it Julie that reviewed that book and said it would be one of her favorites of the year?

  11. September 19, 2010 9:28 am

    Ah, Diamond Ruby is on my wish list. I dunno who wrote the review that got it on my radar, but I know I’m going to have to read it!

  12. September 19, 2010 10:02 am

    I am very interested in The Tower, The Zoo and The Tortoise – I look forward to hearing what you think!

    Enjoy the week!

  13. September 19, 2010 10:20 am

    OMG. September is more than halfway over already. o.O

    Totally jealous of your books, Kathy! But I am drowning in them, so I’ll try to not be too jealous… 🙂

  14. September 19, 2010 10:25 am

    You got a lot! Diamond Ruby sounds good to me!

    Here is mine:

  15. September 19, 2010 10:40 am

    The Tower, the Zoo and the Tortoise sounds like a fun, heartwarming read. Enjoy all your books and wins!

  16. September 19, 2010 11:16 am

    I actually didn’t get any books last week 😦
    Happy reading!

  17. September 19, 2010 11:28 am

    All these books are new to me. I hope you enjoy all of them!

  18. September 19, 2010 11:30 am

    I was just over at Bibliophile by the Sea’s blog, and she also received Moonlight Mile. I’ll be interested to see how your thoughts on it compare.

  19. September 19, 2010 11:47 am

    Wow that is so awesome that you got an autographed bookplate from Adriana Trigiani.

  20. September 19, 2010 11:48 am

    A thriller week for you it seems, enjoy 🙂

    The Bride Collector is on my TBR list and I would love to read the Lehane book. Great haul 🙂

  22. September 19, 2010 1:05 pm

    You got a lot of great looking books there. It’s been a while since I got so much in the mail due to cutting back, but it was always so much fun when I did!

  23. September 19, 2010 1:17 pm

    Your mailbox is certainly a force to reckon with this week! Enjoy your new books! 🙂

  24. September 19, 2010 2:35 pm

    Those sounds good! Enjoy!

  25. September 19, 2010 3:10 pm

    Lots of terrific books. I have the feeling that you’ll really like Diamond Ruby. Happy reading, Kathy!

  26. September 19, 2010 3:18 pm

    Dennis Lehane has a new book out! Didn’t know that. They all look really good. Have fun reading them,
    Natalie :0)

  27. September 19, 2010 3:31 pm

    Out of all of those you received I am most interested to hear your opinion of The Tower, the Zoo, and the Tortoise.

  28. September 19, 2010 3:44 pm

    An autographed bookplate? How fun 🙂

  29. September 19, 2010 4:07 pm

    I’ve wanted to read Diamond Ruby ever since I first read a blurb about it. Happy reading!

  30. September 19, 2010 4:35 pm

    Is that a new book from David Baldacci? I’ll have to check that out.

  31. September 19, 2010 5:02 pm

    THE TOWER, THE ZOO, AND THE TORTOISE is on my wishlist after hearing about it on the Books on the Nightstand podcast!

  32. September 19, 2010 5:17 pm

    I think Jill had a review of “The Tower, The Zoo, and The Tortoise,” that made it sound good. I hope you like it!

  33. September 19, 2010 6:42 pm

    The Tower, the Zoo, and the Tortoise is one of my very next reads, and I am hoping that I love it. I read her first book called The Matchmaker of Perigord and thought it was just wonderful. I am hoping for that kind of magic a second time around! I hope you enjoy all the other books that came into your mailbox this week!

  34. September 19, 2010 7:01 pm

    The bookplate from Trigiani is SOOO COOOOL!

  35. September 19, 2010 7:15 pm

    Great looking mailbox bonanza! I’ve seen a couple of movies based on Lehane’s work, so I really should read one of the books! Moonlight Mile caught my eye.

  36. September 19, 2010 8:39 pm

    When I saw Moonlight Mile on your list, I yelled for a minute. I’m SOOOOO looking forward to what you think. Sigh, I can’t wait to get it in my hands!

  37. September 19, 2010 9:06 pm

    Oops–ours posted, but I forgot to link it up!!

  38. September 19, 2010 10:44 pm

    I keep hearing great things about The Bride Collector. I hope you enjoy all your new books.

    Wow, you have some gr8 books there!

  40. September 20, 2010 12:07 am

    Great books! “The Bride Collector” is on my short list .. I’m determined to read some Dekker in the coming months! Enjoy the reads!

  41. September 20, 2010 12:09 am

    You have the new Dennis Lehane book! I must get that one! LOVE Lehane!

  42. September 20, 2010 12:17 am

    Wow, your mailbox fills up really quickly.
    I can’t believe how the time is flying by this year either.
    Your selection of books looks great.
    I have read quite a lot of David Baldacci in the past, but not heard of this one, definitely one for me to look out for.

  43. September 20, 2010 2:02 am

    Another nice week for you!

    I got The Tower, The Zoo, and The Tortoise too. I’m looking forward to that one. I need something whimsical after reading The Wake of Forgiveness this week. The Bride Collector looks like a good one too.

  44. September 20, 2010 5:34 am

    Hope you like “The Bride Collector”. I thought it was awesome. I’ve been seeing that Tower, Zoo, Tortoise one around a bit lately. Sounds strangely interesting. I’ll be interested in what you have to say about it.

  45. September 20, 2010 6:23 am

    How exciting, you got an autograph! Even better if it was unexpected. 🙂

  46. September 20, 2010 6:49 am

    Of course, the book plate is envied by us all who love Adriana’s writing! I’ve only read The Bride Collector and think that it will be interesting to listen to on audio…a bit creepy:)

  47. September 20, 2010 6:59 am

    All new to me, except the Dekker book. Happy reading and thanks for hosting!

  48. September 20, 2010 7:25 am

    Lots of great books! I’m hoping to receive Moonlight Mile too. And I have The Tower book on my TBR pile too.

    Happy reading!

  49. September 20, 2010 7:26 am

    I have put Dekker on my tbr list after seeing all the great reviews.

  50. September 20, 2010 8:01 am

    Wow, these look all great! Hope you’ll enjoy The Tower, the Zoo, and the Tortoise; I love the sound of it. Happy reading 🙂

  51. September 20, 2010 8:29 am

    That bookplate is so nice! I have a few of those from other authors- it’s nice to have the author “sign” the book, even if you can’t meet them in person!

  52. September 20, 2010 9:18 am

    Happy reading this week!

  53. September 20, 2010 9:28 am

    Great haul! I reviewed The Bride Collector for a few months ago – it was creepy but well done.

  54. September 20, 2010 9:46 am

    Oh that is a new Baldacci one to me! I’m going to have to tell my friend about it! Enjoy all of your new books!

  55. September 20, 2010 10:25 am

    Hmm I really love the title of The Tower, The Zoo, And The Tortoise. I hope you like it!

  56. September 20, 2010 12:08 pm

    ooohhhh . . . I like the Dennis Lehane. The rest look good too. Enjoy!

  57. September 20, 2010 12:30 pm

    Diamond Ruby has been on my wish list for awhile now. It sounds like a great book. Love the book plate!

  58. September 20, 2010 2:14 pm

    Thanks for hosting this month! I’m way behind but working on catching up. I haven’t read the books you received but enjoy all of those authors. I’ll be looking for those titles now! 🙂 Enjoy!!

  59. September 20, 2010 4:06 pm

    That’s a lovely stack of books!

  60. September 20, 2010 7:57 pm

    Oh I want to read Midnight Mile. Here’s mine:

  61. September 20, 2010 8:39 pm

    Great mailbox!

  62. September 20, 2010 10:31 pm

    Cool that you got an autographed book plate from Trigiani. I still haven’t dug Very Valentine out of the TBR but I loved Brava Valentine even though it was the second book in the series.

    Only two new books for me this week but I also got a finished title that the publisher had sent out ARC’s for a few months ago.
