Mailbox Monday - October 14th

Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia, and this month will be hosted by Gina at Book Dragon’s Lair. It’s the place to post all bookish finds! These arrived over the last week.


I was squealing with joy over my new  books this week - audiobooks which were sent to me by Hachette and Simon & Schuster --thanks so very much.

 also a few review copies
 
How about you? Any new books last week?

    1. I usually manage 1-2 audios a week (especially when I have a few days to listen at work). I just pathetic about writing reviews lately.

    1. I love listening to non fiction and this sounds so interesting I thought.

  5. I wonder if Grain Brain is similar to Wheat Belly, which I recently finished. Burial Rites is getting some great reviews.. have it on hold at the library.

  6. Ordered 4 copies of Friends in Deed: The Story of the Quaker Social Reform in America, for my F2F bookclub . Thought it was going to be a bit dry, but so far rather interesting. I do not get books from publishers for review so my mailboxes are usually pretty meager.

  20. Diane, these are all new titles to me, which is hard to believe as I've been "making the rounds" to various blogs. I hope you'll review The Rosie Project, which I peeked at on Amazon.

  24. What a fabulous collection of titles this week Diane. I think I might try and find myself a copy of The Rosie Project in audio too. I've been wanting to read it ever since it was first released in Australia, but unfortunately still haven't found the time - sounds like so much fun!

  27. I just received my copy of The Rosie Project in audio too. I hadn't heard of Grain Brain - it sounds like something I should be reading. Carbs are one of my favorite food groups.
