Mailbox Monday - August 30


 
 
Mailbox Monday in August is hosted by Chick Loves Lit

Thanks for hosting this popular post.

  My mailbox overflowed this week, and while my clothes closets got cleaned, the book shelves are seriously out of control. I really need to do some book purging.
  
   First photo is the result of IMPULSE on line purchases:(



Hope you received some books that you will love!

  7. Ooooh.....I love impulse purchases! I bought two books on Friday night online because someone blogged about their book-buying ban. What can I say? It inspired me, LOL!!! Enjoy everything!

  8. I am thrilled to read that Laura H. has a new book. I had heard she has fibromylagia and Seabiscuit was difficult for her. BTW, I thought Seabiscuit was one of the best books I'd ever read. It had everything: history, drama, facts which would have been thought impossible had they been in a work of fiction, emotion. Perfection. I'm off to look at this new one.
    I have a friend whose mom was a hoarder, and I fear my friend is the same way. A phenomenon I simply cannot understand. I barely keep anything. :<)

  12. What a fantastic mailbox, Diane! Later I need to stop by the bookstore for some books for my daughter--will I be able to resist purchases for myself (and I wonder if they have a book blogger discount?)? :)

  14. I got Dirty Secret too, and have been keeping an eye out for The Elephant Keeper. Fun books!

  15. Diane enjoy all those lovely books! I am reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, hope you enjoy it! Some people say the first 100-150 pgs are slow-I didn't find it to be.

  19. I've been wanting to read the Larsson series too before the movies come out (and I'm holding off on the Swedish one too). I received The Elephant Keeper as a review copy and think the cover is gorgeous. Can't wait to read it.

  20. I know how you feel about the Larsson books. I thought I was the only who who hadn't read them.

  21. I love those online splurges - I had one of my own last week!

    enjoy your books!

  22. You'll love the Larsson books! My husband finished Girl Who Played with Fire this weekend and immediately picked up Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. Good thing you bought all three because you'll want to read them in quick succession!

    Here's what my family and I read this week:

  23. I might be persuaded to try reading the dragon tatto if you like it. I wonder if it's just too close to Grisholm/Patterson... I read too many of these books in the 90's! :)

    Have a great week Diane!

  24. That diary looks tempting! And boo to me, I still haven't read the Larsson books. Have fun - those books (all) are awesome!

  25. I want to read 13 Rue Therese! Great mailbox this week.

  26. You definitely got some great books! I hope you enjoy the Millennium series as much as I did!

  27. Clear your schedule ... my guess if you'll get hooked on the Larsson books and then have to read them all. you're taking a big leap of faith buying all three at once!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You got - Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I so want to buy it too! I am telling you, you won't be disappointed with that series :)

  29. Great books!!! I have all of the Larrson books and hope to get started soon. There are so many good books around...
