Mailbox Monday - August 9


Mailbox Monday in August is hosted by Chick Loves Lit
Thanks for hosting this popular post.

This week was a good one once again for me, as several books that I recently added to my wish list appeared in my mailbox.  I SMILED and SMILED and SMILED as I opened each package. Here is what arrived:

  • Exley; Brock Clarke - October 5th - Algonquin
  • Sunset Park; Paul Auster Nov. 9th - Henry Holt/Shelf Awareness
  • Good Enough to Eat; Stacey Ballis - Sept 7th - Berkley Trade
Thanks to all the publicists who sent these wonderful books my way.

PLEASE be sure to share the books that came your way. I would hate to miss something great :)
