Mailbox Monday - August 24

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page .

Can you ever get too many new books? This week I was thinking --yes, I think you can. (They are here though----so I'm not parting with them now; it's like a pet...each one is now part of the family :)
So here's what arrived:
  1. Songs for the Butcher's Daughter; Manseau (bought it)
  2. The Devil's Company; Liss (giveaway win)
  3. Of Bees and Mist; Setiawan (paperbackswap)
  4. Henry's Sisters; Cathy Lamb (bought it)
  5. Mercury in Retrograde; Froelich (bought it)
  6. Invisible Mountain; De Robertis (ARC)
  7. Repeat After Me; De Woskin (paperback swap)
  8. The Ground Beneath Her Feet; Rushdie (bought it)
  9. A Circle of Souls; Grandhi (author)
  10. White Mary; Salak (audio)
  11. The Weight of Silence; Gudenkauf (paperback swap)

Share with us what treasures you received this week.


  1. What a great bunch of books you got this week!

  2. Wow that is one mighty week! Have fun reading all your new and lovely books :D

  3. Yay. I am not the only mad book buyer around. Your pile is almost as big as mine this week.

  4. No, you can't have too many books! It looks like you got some great ones last week.

  5. Great week! I almost bought "Songs for the Butcher's Daughter" yesterday also, but was feeling frugal so I abstained! It's only a matter of time though....

  6. You needed two more~ then you could have one for each hand every day of the week. Enjoy all your new books.

  7. You got some really good books.

    I personally think you can never have too many books. :)

    Happy Reading and enjoy them all.

  8. Wowsa -- that's a lot of books! Congrats!

  9. You certainly hit the jackpot today! Enjoy your new books.

  10. I recently read both OF BEES AND MIST and INVISIBLE MOUNTAIN and liked both of them. I look forward to reading your reviews!

    (Life by Candlelight)

  11. That's a big stack o' books! Don't you just love paperback swap?

  12. How exciting! Especially in getting The Weight Of Silence from PBS...there are 226 people waiting for that book! :)

  13. I really want to read Of Bees and Mist, so I will be interested to hear what you thought of the book. Great stash this week. I hope you get lots of time to read your new books!

  14. Wow, you had a great week! I've only heard of a couple of those titles, but they all sound good. Yes, I know what you mean about books being like pets. Once a book comes into my possession, it's pretty much mine for life!

  15. You really can't overdo it with books! In honor of Mailbox Monday, I ordered two today. : )

  16. Oh, how wonderful! Twelve new little treasures for you. I've only read 2 books by David Liss but I loved them both and have another on the shelf.

    Looking forward to reading your reviews. Read fast! ;)

  17. Sometimes I think...I have too many books but then I shake my head and smile!! :)

    Enjoy all of those goodies!

  18. Wow, what a great bunch of books. Happy reading. I have Mercury in Retrograde as well.

  19. There is no such thing as Too Many Books. Its just a fable, put out there to scare small children when the Boogie Man doesn't work!

  20. I want the Weight of Silence!

  21. What a great week! We have a couple of the same books: Mercury in Retrograde and A Circle of Souls.
