Mailbox Monday ~ January 12th

January 12, 2009

giftbooksjpgThere’s a humble apology in the offering to everyone who plays Mailbox Monday with a post on their blog. Unbeknownest to me I’ve been missing some of your posts. I only discovered this when I was reading a couple of posts tonight and came across a mention of MM that I hadn’t seen before. I didn’t want anyone to think they were being neglected so I’ve set up a Google Alert to catch MM posts so I can drop by and say ‘hi’ and, of course, check out all those wonderful books you’ve gotten in the last week.

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

This is the last week of the holiday edition of Mailbox Monday. Because I’m the curious type when it comes to books (yours) and all things related feel free to show off those books, gift cards, bookmarks, book lights and covers, Amazon Kindles, Sony eBook Readers or anything else book related you may have gotten.

I knew the delivery people were feeling plumb tuckered out from all their holiday deliveries so I gave them the week off. But I’d like to remind them there is no rest for weary and to gear up because there are books headed my way.


Side notes:

Lorraine Kleinwaks, VP, Book Wish Foundation sent me a note asking if I’d spread the word about a holiday book campaign for the refugees in Darfur. As reading is an important part of my life I wanted to pass this along to my all my visitors. For every two MM comments left on this blog over the next 3 weeks I will donate $1 to the holiday book campaign. In the last two weeks MM has raised approximately $25 for this charity. We’re in our final week of fund raising for this charity.Β 

I have a new site giveaway going on at Up For Grabs. It’s a 2-for-1 giveaway of the new Barry Eisler suspense thriller, Fault Line. There’s a copy for you to keep, and a copy for you to share. Check out the details here.

Come February Noontime Book Chat (NBC) previously hosted by J. Kaye is moving here to The Printed Page. You can read the moving announcement here. If you’d like to co-host a Noontime Book ChatΒ with me please check out the NBC page.


What books came into your house last week? Don’t forget to leave a link to your Mailbox post or a list of books if you don’t have a blog.

    I had a slow week for books, very unusual for me but a relief too as I haven’t been able to keep up with reviews. Going Down South by Bonnie J. Glover was the treat I got from a win at J Kaye’s Book Blogs. Nice to know about the campaign for Darfur.My MM post is up here:

    Thank you.
