Mailbox Monday ~ November 3rd

November 3, 2008

*** Please note The Printed Page has it’s own address now, printedpage ( I didn’t think I’d moving once let alone twice in the same year! Please update your links. Thank you ~ Marcia ***

Thank you to everyone who stops by Mailbox Monday. Whether you comment or visit I appreciate your taking the time to drop in.

Here’s what come into my house last week:

Fiction ~ Beside A Burning Sea by John Shors. This book was sent to me by the author. I read his other book, Beneath A Marble Sky and enjoyed it immensely. I’m looking forward to reading this one.

BTW – Mr. Shors signed this copy and it will be given away at over at Up For Grabs once I’ve read and reviewed it.

Historical fiction ~ Mr. and Mrs. Prince: How an Extraordinary Eighteenth-Century Family Moved Out of Slavery and into Legend by Gretchen Holbrook Gerzina.

In anticipation of Jane Porter’s tour stopping here at the end of November and, courtesy of Miriam at Hachette Books, I received the 4 books of Ms. Porter’s published by Hachette. She writes women’s fiction and the books are: Flirting with Forty, Mrs. Perfect, Odd Mom Out, and The Frog Prince.

As part of her tour stop I will be giving 3 sets of all four books. Be sure to mark your calendars for the end of November! I don’t have an exact date but most likely right after Thanksgiving and right before I leave on vacation.

Memoir/ebook ~ In the Land of Invisible Women: A Female Doctor’s Journey in the Saudi Kingdom by Qanta A. Ahmed


My current giveaway here at TPP is Life After Genius by M. Ann Jacoby. My interview with Ms. Jacoby and giveaway are here.

November 6th and 7th Cyndia Depre tour’s will be stopping by TPP. 11/6 will be my review of her newest book, Oblivious. 11/7 will an author interview with Cyndia and giveaway of a signed copy of Oblivious.

    Another good week! I’m interested to see how you like the ebook – I’m still not sure if I really like that format.
    I love the ebook format. I transferred the .pdf file to my Kindle and I’m off to read.

    Oooh…I want to read Beside a Burning Sea! Looking forward to your review of that book and all the others. My Mailbox Monday post is here:
    I started ‘Beside A Burning Sea’ last night (11/5) and it’s very good so far. I’m thinking this will be another winner from Mr. Shors.
