Mailbox Monday: Gifts

I almost feel like a child boasting about Christmas gifts! Here are the latest acquisitions to my book collection, and they are, for the most part, gifts.



From Yvonne's blog, Socrates' Book Review Blog, I won the audio book version of The Bride Collector by Ted Dekker. Many book bloggers listen to audio books on a regular basis, while I've only listened to a couple, so I'm pleased to possess a new audio book.

Deepak Chopra's new book, Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet, arrived for an upcoming TLC book tour. This book will be released to the public on September 21, 2010. I have several books by Deepak Chopra, including my favorite so far, Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, which the author signed for me many years ago.

Goops and How to Be Them is a gift for my birthday from my mother. She read these verses to me and my sisters when we were mere goops, and it's wonderful to reacquaint myself with this very charming book.

My sister, Karen, gave me a Barnes & Noble gift card as a birthday gift. It's the perfect gift for me!

Lydia from Putnam sent The Defector by Daniel Silva to thank me for being on TLC's The Rembrandt Affair book blog tour. But it should be the other way around. I should thank Lydia, because I enjoyed reading my first Daniel Silva thriller and being on the tour, which was a very different sort of book tour.

Mailbox Monday, one of my favorite memes, is being hosted by one of my favorite bloggers, Kathy from Bermudaonion's Weblog, during the month of September. What new books have you gotten recently in the mail or from elsewhere?

  2. I won two books this past month, but, they haven't arrived in my Mailbox yet.

    Enjoy reading your books. And I so love Barnes and Noble gift cards. I have a credit card from Barnes and Noble, so after so many dollars charged on it I receive a gift card. Love it when I receive the gift card in my mailbox. It is always a wonderful surprise.
