Mailbox Monday

(I'm posting my Mailbox Monday tonight - busy day tomorrow)

Mailbox Monday is a fun meme where bloggers reveal the books that arrived at their house (by mail) over the past week. Thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page. 

 Did you get any good books? Please share!

(April - 2010, from Carrie - Sourcebooks)
* This reading journal looks awesome - a must for book lovers everywhere!

*Mom Still Likes You Best; Jane Isay
(May-2010 - Doubleday)
* This title really appealed to me as my two adult children still say this all the time!


Cardboard: A Woman Left for Dead; Fiona Place
(January-2010 - sent by the author)


The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno; Ellen Bryson
(June-2010 - Henry Holt/Shelf Awareness)


The Children's Book, A.S. Byatt (UK softcover)

  4. Oh, there are several books there that look fabulous! I think I'd enjoy the one about unfinished business between siblings...and Cardboard. Intriguing!

  5. What a nice group of new books!

    I found out about READ, REMEMBER ... just last week; looks like a good resource.

    And CARDBOARD: A WOMAN LEFT FOR DEAD sure got my attention!

  6. I also got Read, Remember, Recommend (which I have started using) and Cardboard. I will be looking out for your reviews!

  7. Every single book title/cover looks intriguing, as in, must find them. Is it because it's Sunday night and I prolong the weekend by staying up late, with books stacked nearby along with my journal as Hubs and I watch banal TV and multi-task at fun things even as the work day rises tomorrow?
    No, it's not just that. I find each fo the titles..."Cardboard," The Children's Boo," well, all of them either amusing or intriguing.Oh, what a rich way to begin the week, in search of these titles! Thanks, Diane! (also just added you to my blog list faves - hope that's cool with you.)

  21. I can hear my sister saying "Mom likes you best!" She was the trouble maker and I was the good kid. My mom didn't like me best, she just didn't yell at me as much. The reading journal I may have to get. I'll watch for your thoughts on it. Happy reading!

  28. I saw The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno by Ellen Bryson when I was shopping at the book store on Sunday. Let me know what you think of it so I can decide if I have to go get it now, or if it can wait until I have a bit more time to read.
