Mailbox Monday

   Mailbox Monday is hosted by: Marcia @ The Printed Page.  Join in the fun and check out what arrived in everyone's mailboxes last week by visiting Marcia's blog.
 
 These came by mail:



and these (7), I picked up at a book sale in CT this weekend for $6.50!

Thanks to the publishers who sent books my way, as well as the PBS members who listed the great books that I received.
I can't wait to check out your new books; please leave your link!

  2. I loved A Reliable Wife! The AAUW is having it's annual used book sale June 16-18 in our town, and I'm half scared to death to go for fear of what I'll pick up. I still haven't read most of the books from 2009! I'm sure you're much better than I. ;)

  5. Lots of good stuff there, as usual! The Outside Boy was one of the books in the Book Blogger Con swag bag that I'm really looking forward to reading. My mom and I both read All We Ever Wanted Was Everything. I was just lukewarm on it, but she actually liked it quite a lot. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it!

    Happy reading.

  9. Oooh -- you have a great list! I just finished Bucolic Plague and LOVED it.

    Was that booksale in Roxbury, CT? I live in CT, and drove through there and noticed a sign.

    (I'm also from 5minutesforbooks.com)

  10. I just finished Based Upon Availability and thought that it was stunning. Very sad, but also very good. The others you got look very interesting as well. I do have a copy of The Forsythe Trilogy and A Reliable Wife, but have not read them yet. I hope you enjoy all your new arrivals!!

  11. We read A Reliable Wife for the Manic Mommies Book CLub in 2009, there is an author Q&A and our discussion online for you to read when you are done with this book - I wonder if you will like it (know there are some disturbing/grahic pages in this book, this is the critism I heard when we read it).

    I loved My Name is Mary Sutter - the second half of the book moves at a quick pace (compared to the first half).

    Have a great week!
