Mailbox Monday: A Pictorial Guide


Oh, happy day! Having read and reviewed The Principles of Uncertainty by Maira Kalman, I was very excited to receive And the Pursuit of Happiness by the same author, which arrived compliments of Penguin Group for an upcoming TLC book tour. This book will be released to the public on October 14, 2010; I feel so privileged to have a copy in advance!

I purchased Holly's Inbox by Holly Denham from Amazon because of Bermudaonion's review, and Be Love Now by Ram Dass arrived from HarperOne, also for a future TLC book tour. Last but not least, I won Mr. Darcy's Little Sister by C. Allyn Pierson on Laura's Reviews.

But wait! There are more packages to open! I thought I was done but two more packages arrived from UPS.




One of the perks of being a book blogger is being privy to giveaways and winning books. I won GoD and DoG by Wendy Francisco on Renee's blog, Black 'n Gold Girl's Book Spot, and Off Season by Anne Rivers Siddons on Darlene's blog, Peeking Between the Pages.

I anticipate getting a great deal of enjoyment from these books.


Created by Marcia from The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday is currently on tour. During the month of October, Avis from She Reads and Reads will be hosting this fun meme. What new books have you gotten recently in the mail or from elsewhere?

  8. Diane,I couldn't resist using the striking apples!

    Lisa, me, too! Love to get those packages!

    Kate,thanks! :)

    Naida, I've been enjoying a lot of apples this season.

    Staci, yes, it's great to find packages in the entryway.

    Mrs. Q., it is a "chunkster", but because it's comprised of email, it's supposed to be a quick read.

    Kathy, I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy it, though it may take me a while to actually read it!
