Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of The Printed Page and is being hosted by Rose City Reader during the month of January.  Here’s what found it’s way into my home:




What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Great selection of books this week. The one that is particularly interesting to me is Learning to Swim. I’ll be looking forward to your reviews 🙂

    Enjoy your week Kathy!

    Oh, I read a Joseph Wambaugh book many years ago…loved it! It was a dark tale, as I recall, so I’m guessing that his take on the glamor capital will not be a superficial one. Sounds good!

    Here’s my MM:

    Hope you have a great reading week. I get nothing in my mailbox since I’m in book buying band mode. =)

  18. January 10, 2011 11:17 am

    Great mailbox 😀
    I had one too, the mail FINALLY started to come as before so I had some parcels, it was like there was one big stop for 3 weeks. And now things from way back came

  19. January 10, 2011 11:29 am

    All new titles to me bt they look good!

    I finished reading a book last night and have decided to take a few days to pick up another title. My christmas decorations are still up and I need to prioritize! 🙂

    Have a great week.

  20. January 10, 2011 11:31 am

    I got The Memory Palace too and can’t wait to read it! The others are new to me, but I hope that you enjoy them!

  21. January 10, 2011 11:32 am

    Nice list! Hollywood Hills looks interesting. I haven’t read any Wambaugh, but he’s been on my to-read list for a while.

  30. January 10, 2011 5:09 pm

    Again…they all look amazing…but especially Learning To Swim…early reviews on that one are amazing…

  31. January 10, 2011 6:52 pm

    Oh the Memory Palace sounds like a hard hitting read. Something to stir the heart & no doubt moments of tears too. I’ll be anxious to hear what you think next.

    Another winning mailbox girl you just have good mailbox karma 🙂

    I’m not really familiar with many of those, but I saw The Memory Palace on one other blog this evening, and it sounds interesting. Happy Reading Kathy!

  39. January 11, 2011 2:54 am

    These are all new titles to me as well, although I have heard of The Memory Palace. Great mailbox…enjoy!

  44. January 11, 2011 10:03 pm

    I was just listening to Fresh Air on NPR today on my way home and they were interviewing the author for The Memory Palace. It sounded like a very intense, interesting memoir. Hope they are all good.

  45. January 11, 2011 10:29 pm

    I love the title The Memory Palace!

  46. January 12, 2011 1:04 pm

    Wow, I haven’t heard anything about Wambaugh for awhile. I’ll be interested to hear how you like that one.

  47. January 12, 2011 9:12 pm

    I haven’t heard of any of these books!!! Yikes .. usually I’ve heard of at least one in your mailbox.

  48. January 14, 2011 10:23 am
