Mailbox Monday, Etc.

Nothing beats getting packages in the mail! The sight of boxes and padded envelopes in my mailbox or at my doorstep always makes me smile.  Pictured are the new books that were recently delivered to my "mailbox".

Tim Rowland's Creature Features arrived for an upcoming book tour with Premier Virtual Authors Book ToursThe Gunners of Shenyang by Jihui Yu traveled all the way from Signal 8 Press in Hong Kong to my home.  I also received Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans, the new book by Joanne DeMaio, for an upcoming book tour, as well as The Paradise Guest House by Ellen Sussman, for a TLC book tour.  I'm looking forward to reading each of these, and to participating in the book tours over the next few months.

With Valentine's Day is just around the corner, why not treat someone special--maybe yourself--to a wonderful gift from GoneReading?  My readers will now get 20% off any purchases made from GoneReading; simply use the coupon code SUKOS20 during checkout.  GoneReading has some glorious gifts "just for her".  And GoneReading donates 100% of after-tax profits to fund libraries and reading programs around the world--another great reason to shop at GoneReadingI may need to buy myself a little something.  I especially love their cute T-shirts (wearing them grants you extra "permission" to read),  pretty book journals, and lovely note cards featuring paintings of women reading.

Mailbox Monday is a fabulous way to showcase new books and reading-related items.  Created by Marcia, who has set up various book blogs as well as a Mailbox Monday blog, this meme has been "on tour" for the past few years. Audra from Unabridged Chick is hosting Mailbox Monday for the month of February. What new goodies did you find in your mailbox recently?


  1. I am loving Creature Features, and think that you will too! It's utterly hilarious, and I am just about to go back to it now. Fantastic mailbox today, Suko!!

    1. I am so glad to hear that, Zibilee! Thanks for your comment. :)

  2. What colorful and interesting covers! Enjoy the books, Suko!

  3. What a fun mailbox with a book coming all the way from Hong Kong! The Paradise Guest House catches my eye. I hope all of your books exceed your expectations!

  4. You are so right, nothing beats getting packages in the mail :)
    Those books all look good, and how cute is the cover on Creature Features. I will surely check out Gone Reading. Enjoy your books.

  5. Fun arrivals -- I'm on the tour for Sussman as well. I liked her previous novel and I'm curious about this one. Enjoy all your reads!

  6. Oh I love those packages too! Love the title of Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans. Enjoy all your books!

  7. I have been reading "Creature Features" a little at a time. I love each little tid-bit he writes about. I feel sure it will be a book I will read over, which is saying a lot, since I very seldom re-read books.

  8. ENJOY....they all look good.
