Mailbox Monday

September 26, 2010

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, and I can’t believe it’s my last week to host.  Be sure to check in with Avis of  She Reads and Reads next week, since she’s hosting for October.    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.”

I left for SIBA Thursday morning but hope to update with reports from home while I’m gone.  (I took the photo Wednesday afternoon.)  This is what I found in my mailbox last week:




What books came into your home?  Here’s the link for those participating this week:

    I was offered that John Shors book and I stoically turned it down. Broke my heart, I tell you. I have a feeling that today some serious damage is going to be done to my book stacks. See ya soon!

    I got one book last week, The Network by Jason Elliot. It was a win from GoodReads. Can hardly wait to read it.

  14. September 26, 2010 1:03 pm

    You had great week! The False Friend sounds good. Enjoy your books!

    And thanks for hosting this month 🙂

    Great books, Kathy! Many I’d never heard of. Enjoy.

  19. September 26, 2010 3:47 pm

    Wow, another great week of books. All these books are new to me. Thank you for hosting IMM for the month of September!!

  20. September 26, 2010 3:50 pm

    Oh, I DO Heart New York. I’m sure I’d love that one. Having the pleasure of living close to NYC now, I love it even more when that wonderful city serves as a backdrop in movies and books and TV.

  21. September 26, 2010 4:54 pm

    The Wishing Trees sounds like a real tearjerker. Thanks for hosting MM!

  22. September 26, 2010 7:00 pm

    And I was wondering why there were only four books in the picture! Looks like an interesting set of books. Haven’t heard of any, so I’ll be looking for your reviews.

  23. September 26, 2010 7:12 pm

    I really want to read the Wishing Trees.

  24. September 26, 2010 7:13 pm

    Looks like you got a bunch of good books! Enjoy them all!

  25. September 26, 2010 8:14 pm

    Oh, you’ve been a wonderful host this month! Thanks!

    Your mailbox looks delightful. The False Friend has caught my eye….

    Great mailbox! Have fun with the books! I hope u have a great week ahead 🙂

  27. September 26, 2010 8:17 pm

    I think I’d like to read the Wishing Trees. If I’m correct, I believe he also wrote Under a Marble Sky – which I really enjoyed.

  28. September 26, 2010 8:18 pm

    COMPOSED is supposed to be fantastic!

  29. September 26, 2010 8:28 pm

    I also received The False Friend. Enjoy your books!

  30. September 26, 2010 8:29 pm

    Lots of goodies for you! All of those titles are new to me. Happy reading! Thanks for hosting this month 🙂

  32. September 26, 2010 10:07 pm

    Wishing Trees sounds amazing and one of the first books I received from an author when I began blogging was a book from John Shors. I cant wait to hear more about that one!

  33. September 26, 2010 10:34 pm

    This is the second time I’ve seen “False Friend” … it sounds very cool! Enjoy ALL of the wonderful books and congrats on the wins and THANKS for hosting this month! Now it’s my turn .. 🙂

  34. September 27, 2010 12:07 am

    Wow, some great books! This is my first Mailbox Monday- I’ve cheated and looked at the books I’ve received over the last month. Need to get reading!

    I am getting a copy of Composed as well, and I am looking forward to it. The new Shors book looks really interesting as well. I have read a couple of his already and think that he’s a great author. I hope you enjoy all your new ones, and lord knows, there are a lot of them!!

    Hi Kathy,

    This is really great that you’re hosting. I want to participate in at least one Mailbox Monday that you’re hosting so I’m not going to miss this for the world. I entered my link in Mister Linky! 🙂

  44. September 27, 2010 9:41 am

    These all look great but I am especially envious of The Wishing Trees. My mailbox is here:

  45. September 27, 2010 10:33 am

    I’ve heard great things about The Wishing Trees – enjoy your books!

  46. September 27, 2010 10:42 am

    The John Shors book is on my wish list. Several people in my online book group have recommended his books. Thanks for hosting this month and for reminding us who is hosting next week. Have a fun week!

  48. September 27, 2010 11:27 am

    Looks like another great week for you. Enjoy!

  49. September 27, 2010 11:27 am

    I’ve heard good things about the Roseanne Cash book, and need to add it to my wish list.

  50. September 27, 2010 1:17 pm

    I heard “I heart New York” was really fun. Happy reading!

  51. September 27, 2010 1:57 pm

    I am consistently astounded by the amount of books that come into your house! I would never be able to keep up.

  52. September 27, 2010 1:58 pm

    Completely enjoyed meeting you as well! Thanks for befriending me when I knew no one. 🙂 Hope we can keep in touch!

  53. September 27, 2010 5:43 pm

    Ooh, so many good books this week! (Not that you don’t get good books every week!) I really want to read the bottom three in your photo!

  54. September 27, 2010 5:44 pm

    Oh and thanks for mentioning that I’m hosting next month. Hopefully I can remember how to set up the Mr. Linky!

  55. September 27, 2010 7:22 pm

    i’ve wanted to join the fun this month but my mailbox has been empty. i always enjoy this meme and you did a great job as a host! 🙂

  56. September 28, 2010 1:01 am

    I never make my posts in time to participate, but I made it this week!

  57. September 28, 2010 1:22 am

    I’m a little slower than usual this week but my link is up now and I should have some time to check out other posts. Likely I will stumble on something that grabs my attention then.

    Thanks for hosting this month, Kathy.
