Marvelous Mailbox Monday

When I first started blogging about books in May of 2008, I only dreamed of the day when I'd be sent books in the mail. I really never expected anyone to mail me books, unless I paid for them. It took about a year of blogging before anyone contacted me and asked me to review a book. I always keep this in mind when I feel a bit overwhelmed by requests, and I appreciate each and every book that has been mailed to me.


Last week, I received three books in the mail. To Your Dog's Health!: Canine Nutrition and Recent Trends Within the Pet Food Industryby Mark Poveromo arrived from Lisa, the Online Publicist. I have a 12-year-old boxer, so I hope this book will have some useful advice about meeting the nutritional needs of an older dog. Additionally, two authors sent me their books. Jeannette Katzir mailed me Broken Birds, The Story of My Momila, a true story about the lasting effects of World War II and the Holocaust, and Sweta Srivastava Vikram sent me Because All is Not Lost, a collection of her poetry. I'm looking forward to reading each of these.


Mailbox Monday, one of my favorite memes, is being hosted by Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit this month. What new books have you gotten recently in the mail or from elsewhere?

  9. Getting books from publishers is such a privilege, isn't it. Our dog is 14 and 1/2, so I'll be interested to read your review of To Your Dog's Health.
