Mailbox Monday

January 31, 2011

Friday was my mother’s 84th birthday, so I’ve been in Alabama to celebrate with her.  I’m on my way home today, so I wasn’t able to take a picture of my books.   I did get Carl to let me know what came while I was gone, so the list is accurate.  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 I found in my mailbox last week:





Did you bring any new books into your home last week?

    I’ve heard great things about Kat Incorrigable! Hope you them all.

    Great week for you.

    Hope you and your mother had a nice visit.

    Lots of good ones Kathy. How nice to be able to visit with your mom for her birthday.

  4. January 31, 2011 7:16 am

    Happy Birthday to mom! And I’m impressed that you keep up with your flow of books, even when you are not there!

    Great mailbox! Those sounds good and hope you enjoy your new books!

    Seriously you have some ehavy duty book karma girl.

    I saw Mary Bookfan also had the Dressmaker of Khair Khana. Looking forward to hearing what you will think of it next.
    Happy belated to your mom and at least Carl picked up the Mailbox goodies along the way.

    We started the week similarly but then we diverged! I’m curious to hear what you think about those memoirs.

  8. January 31, 2011 8:14 am

    Hope you had a nice visit…what a great time you must have had.

    The books look fascinating, and I hope you enjoy them.

    Hope your mum had a good birthday. Lovely books as always.

  10. January 31, 2011 8:47 am

    Happy birthday to your mom! and I love all those Algonquin books. 🙂

  11. January 31, 2011 8:48 am

    The Dressmaker sounds so good! Enjoy your books Kathy!

  12. January 31, 2011 8:48 am

    I just read about Minding Ben in today’s Publishers Weekly and put it on my TBR…enjoy!!

  13. January 31, 2011 9:23 am

    Best wishes to your Mum. You have a goodly pile here!

  14. January 31, 2011 9:44 am

    Some good additions to your TBR pile this week, Kathy! I have an eARC of “Minding Ben”, so I’ll be curious to hear what you think of it.

  15. January 31, 2011 9:52 am

    Looks like you got a bunch of books I haven’t heard of. Hope you enjoy them

  16. January 31, 2011 9:59 am

    Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings post!

  17. January 31, 2011 10:44 am

    I also got The Fifth Servant last week, and am really excited about getting the chance to read it. I am really curious about The Dressmaker of Khair Khana, Kathy. and will be interested to read your take on it. A lot of great books made their way to you this time around, and I hope you enjoy them!

  18. January 31, 2011 10:56 am

    That’s quite a list. Enjoy!

  19. January 31, 2011 11:26 am

    What a wonderful way to spend the weekend, a very Happy Belated Birthday to your mother, what a blessing for you.

    Great Mailbox last week, sounds like you have lots of good reading ahead.

    Here’s what my mailman brought me:

  20. January 31, 2011 11:41 am

    Kathy, you certainly get a lot of interesting sounding books! Enjoy your time with your mother as well as your books. 🙂

  21. January 31, 2011 11:48 am

    So many amazing books…

    I really want to read The Dressmaker in Khair Khana, hope you enjoy it.

    Happy belated birthday!

  22. January 31, 2011 1:20 pm

    I’ll be curious to see your thoughts on The Inner Circle. I wasn’t a big fan.

  23. January 31, 2011 1:22 pm

    Enjoy your books 😀

  24. January 31, 2011 1:32 pm

    Kat, Incorrigible and Revolution sound excellent. Enjoy your books.

  25. January 31, 2011 1:43 pm

    I’m anxious to hear about The Jews Store. I’m a firm believer that birthdays should be spent with moms, as it’s my son’s birthday today, I think he should be with me, like on that original day, but he has other ideas. Bah !

  26. January 31, 2011 2:13 pm

    Wow! So many good books! I also got Kat, Incorrigible but haven’t read any of the others. I look forward to your reviews. Hope you enjoy them all and have a great week! 🙂

  27. January 31, 2011 2:42 pm

    That’s very special to be able to celebrate mom’s 84th birthday. And then to come home to a lovely bunch of books.

  28. January 31, 2011 3:09 pm

    Nice mailbox…great way to snuggle up, keep warm and get through the winter.

  29. January 31, 2011 3:34 pm

    You got so many! Lucky you. Hope you enjoy them all.

    You’ve got great books! The dressmaker of Khair Khana sounds really good. Enjoy all your books and have a safe trip back.

  31. January 31, 2011 4:17 pm

    You received some fascinating & very interesting books, Kathy! The Dressmaker of Kair Khana really interests me!

    Happy Birthday to your mom!

    Happy 84th Birthday to your mother.

  33. January 31, 2011 5:05 pm

    Wow, so many great books. The Dressmaker of Khair Khana sounds great! Enjoy!

  34. January 31, 2011 5:31 pm

    The Dressmaker of Khair Khana was in my mailbox last week too!

  35. January 31, 2011 7:59 pm

    You had a good week! I got Kat, Incorrigible too.

  36. January 31, 2011 8:39 pm

    I see we have Minding Ben in common. By the looks of it I think it will be more serious than The Nanny Diaries.

  37. January 31, 2011 8:45 pm

    Your mailbox brought some great reads to you!!

  38. February 1, 2011 1:09 am

    That’s a nice load of books. I would especially be interested in The Jew Store and The Dressmaker..

  39. February 1, 2011 1:05 pm

    Looks like a lot of great books there. I hope you enjoy them all!

  40. February 1, 2011 7:05 pm

    I managed to have a week with no new books arriving in my house!

  41. February 1, 2011 8:53 pm

    I also have Dressmaker to read. I’m so looking forward to it. Enjoy your books!

  42. February 1, 2011 10:21 pm

    My Dressmaker review goes up tonite. Loved it.

  43. February 2, 2011 10:20 am

    Happy birthday to your mom and enjoy your new books.

  44. February 2, 2011 3:48 pm

    Ah, I just found Minding Ben on netgalley. Enjoy!

  45. February 2, 2011 3:55 pm

    Happy Belated Birthday to your Mom! Great lot of books too!

  46. February 3, 2011 4:29 am

    Happy 84th birthday to your mom!

    That’s lots of lovely books and I’d be so glad to have some into my mailbox this week. Oh wait, I do have two in the mail… Will have something up for MM this coming Monday!

  47. February 3, 2011 9:29 pm

    Happy Birthday to your mom, Kathy! So good that you’re close enough to be able to drive to spend it with her (albeit a long drive).

    Kudos to Carl for checking your packages … I’m impressed! MINDING BEN looks like a fun books — enjoy them all!

  48. February 5, 2011 11:29 pm

    I keep seeing ads for Brad Meltzer’s book The Inner Circle in the D.C. metro trains. I saw him speak several years ago and he was quite funny, but I’ve never actually read him. I should get around to that sometime.

  49. February 25, 2011 6:44 pm


    A brief note to say thanks for the mention of “The Dressmaker of Khair Khana.” I hope all of you enjoy this story — it has been quite a journey for me to bring to readers this universal story of unsung heroines who pull families through impossible times every day, all around the world. Please visit at anytime.

    Warm wishes,

    Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
