Mailbox Monday

Last week, four books arrived in the mail. On Tuesday, I received The Last Songby Nicholas Sparks, which I won on Darlene's book blog, Peeking Between the Pages. As a fan of Sparks' romances, I was very happy to win this book. On Friday, I found two books in my mailbox, The Art of Racing in the Rainby Garth Stein from Terra Communications, a book I've been interested in since reading about it on Stephanie's Written Word, and Live a Life You Love, an inspirational book by Dr. Susan Biali from Online Publicist. Last but not least, on Saturday I received The Life O'Reilly from and by Brian Cohen, which has gotten many excellent reviews on Amazon. I'm looking forward to reading all of these books.

Mailbox Monday is one of my favorite memes, where readers share the books they've recently acquired, hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page. Feel free to join in the fun, but be forewarned: "Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists". What books arrived in your home recently, by mail or from elsewhere?


  1. Lucky you. I was told (not by Terra Communications though) that there were no more review copies of The Art of Racing in the Rain left. Hope you enjoy it. I still haven't read it (not that I don't have enough books to read!) My MM is up.

  2. Your mail box was a treasure chest last week. Congratulations.

    Books I've received recently? Mostly history, as I'm researching some stuff about WW2 and the affect of war on family life. Not exciting reading, but it is interesting.


  3. The Life O'Reilly sounds very good. I shall have to look it up.

  4. I loved The Art of Racing in the Rain and hope you do too!

  5. A few great books. I have two of them.

  6. Ooooo good haul this week! The Last Song looks really good!
