Mailbox Monday


My mailbox has been a busy place lately!  A book I won on Darlene's blog, The Sister Queens by Sophie Perinot arrived, along with two other books, Christmas Stories - Everyman's Library (by a variety of writers), and Much Ado About Loving
by Jack Murnighan and Maura Kelly.  I'm not sure why I'm getting Architectural Digest (I didn't order it!), but I've received the last three issues in the mail.


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme that allows us to "show off" our new books. The brainchild of Marcia, who has set up various book blogs as well as a Mailbox Monday blog, this friendly meme has been "on tour" for the past few years.  This month, Lori's Reading Corner is the host of Mailbox Monday. What new books did you find in your mailbox recently?

  6. I got Much Ado About Loving as well, and am going to try to find the time to review it, even though I am more taken with audio right now. Excellent mailbox, Suko! I like what you've got there!

  10. That is too funny that you are getting a magazine u didn't order. My husband keeps getting "The Guide Post" - which we would never order -- think someone is playing a joke on him, or got to enter a buy 1 get 1 free subscription? Maybe the same is true for you?

    Enjoy your new books and magazines.

  14. A few years ago my wife and I started getting unsolicited magazines like Men's Health and Fitness and Runner's World. At first we thought, "Hey, free magazines. That's cool.". But then we realized that the publishers had gotten ahold of our credit card and was already charging us for year-long subscriptions. Needless to say, we were on the war path in a hurry.

    1. I probably should make sure that I didn't (inadvertently) pay for a subscription to this magazine. Thanks for the comment!

  15. Nice collection to choose from! My mailbox has been quite sparse which is probably a very good thing as I am trying to read some of my long-held collection this year. Although I did recently receive a craft book that I'd forgotten I won in December -- a nice surprise and now I so wish I had even more time to myself as I want to experiment with some of the new fabric arts in it!
