Mailbox Monday – September 28, 2009


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Printed Page. If you’re eager to tell the rest of the book blogging world about the wonderful books you’ve received this week, click over and share your link.

The Magicians by Lev Grossman – I bought this one with an Amazon gift card I was given. This makes the 16th book I’ve bought so far this year (bought new, not counting the library sale). I made a commitment not to buy more than 20 books new this year, so I’m doing better than I expected!

no time to wave goodbye
No Time to Wave Goodbye by Jacquelyn Mitchard – Review copy from Goodreads’ Early Reads program.

geography of love
The Geography of Love: A Memoir by Glenda Burgess – Review copy from Library Thing.

remarkable creatures
Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier – I won this in a giveaway at Literate Housewife.

The Financial Lives of Poets by Jess Walter – This is an ARC for a blog tour.

Any books find their way to your house this week?

      Sandy – I don’t know if I would have done as well if I wasn’t receiving so many ARCs and review copies and giveaway wins! They have helped stave off my craving for new books.

  2. Ooh, I’m so jealous. I really want to read Remarkable Creatures. I’m excited to see what you think about it.

    Oh the Tracy Chevalier book is on my radar although she’s a bit of hit or miss for me. You’ve got some great books there and I’ll be looking forward to the blog tour of the Poets book. What a cool title.

      Iliana – when I first heard the title, I wasn’t sure if it was fiction or non-fiction!
