Mailbox Monday: On the Way

Zero, zip, zilch!  Next time, I'll request expedited shipping. This past week, I didn't get any books in the mail--my mailbox was devoid of books.  Good grief!






Don't feel too sorry for me though, because I'm expecting a few books in the mail soon that I think will be extraordinary, including Beneath Cold Seas: The Underwater Wilderness of the Pacific Northwest by photographer David Hall, Fleeting Memory, the first mystery in the Enescu Fleet series by Sherban Young, and a book I couldn't resist ordering earlier today after seeing it on Bellezza's blog, Dolce Bellezza, Christmas Stories (Everyman's Library) by a variety of writers, edited by Diana Secker Tesdell.



Created by Marcia, who has established various book blogs and also publishes the Mailbox Monday blog, I'm hosting this magical meme for the month of December (even when my own mailbox is empty).  Mailbox Monday is a friendly way to share the new books we've acquired.  What new books appeared in your mailbox recently, or on your shelves by some other means?  Please leave a comment after linking.  Thank you!

    1. Yes! Usually books zoom through the mail to me. I don't mind waiting a bit, especially during this busy time of the year.

  13. Beneath the Cold Seas sounds like it's going to be excellent! I love books that take a look at previously uncharted territory and give the reader a peek inside. Excellent stuff making its way to your mailbox!!

  15. I love that you ordered the Christmas Stories from Everyman's Library (just as I did when I saw it last year). Don't worry if it comes late, you'll still enjoy each one. I can't wait to read the one by Truman Capote since everyone says it's so fantastic. That gives me something to look forward to tonight. :)

    1. Bellezza, the Truman Capote Christmas story interests me as well. I'm not sure if I'll read the stories in order, or skip around.

  16. I'm a bit late in linking up today. I thought I was going to get a head start. Wrote my post yesterday, just needed to publish it this am and then link up. UGH! Life gets in the way!!
    Last Monday I had none to post either. It's OK, fun to look forward to books you know are in the mail. Or maybe under the Christmas tree!! :)

  20. Sounds like our household in which its either all or nothing - some weeks I worry about our post man's back and the possibility of a hernia and yet other weeks, as you say, there are no book deliveries and he sighs a huge sigh of relief.

  21. Enjoy the books when they get there Suko! I think I need a few weeks of 'no book' deliveries myself...lol.

  22. Sometimes those no-book-weeks are a blessing. Sorry it took me so long to get around to commenting!
