Mailbox Monday ~ January 19th

January 18, 2009

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 I got last week:

Women’s fiction/chick lit ~ Houston, We Have a Problema by Gwendolyn Zepeda

Historical fiction ~ The Duchess by Amanda Foreman

Women’s fiction ~ True Colors by Kristin Hannah

Non-fiction ~ Regina’s Closet: Finding My Grandmother’s Secret Journal by Diana M. Raab

**********

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. Thank you to everyone who helped me support this charity by leaving a comment here at Mailbox Monday over the last three weeks. We raised $60 for this charity. 

I have a new site giveaway going on at Up For Grabs. I’m giving away 10 signed copies of Etta by Gerald Kolpan. Check it out here.

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.

    This is my first MM and I think I went a little overboard with the post. Here it is.

    I need to read a Kristin Hannah book – I have some on my shelves but have not tried any of hers yet. My list this week is here: http://booksandneedlepoint.blogspot.com/2009/01/mailbox-monday-1-19-09.html

    This is the first MM I’ve done in a few weeks. Post-holiday slump, I guess.

    I was just alerted to your posting about the funds you raised for Book Wish Foundation for books for the Darfur refugees! Fantastic! I too wanted to express my sincere thanks to you and all your readers/bloggers for this great support! Since every dollar makes a difference — $60 will make a big difference! With much appreciation, Lorraine Kleinwaks, VP, Book Wish Foundation

    My first Mailbox Monday and the amount of books that landed on Mt. TBR during the last 7 days is shocking! I’ve posted about it here: http://cozymurders.blogspot.com/2009/01/mailbox-monday-january-19-2009.html
    Thanks a lot for hosting it, Marcia!

    You have a lot of great books there. I saw the Duchess on DVD recently and enjoyed it.

    My first Mailbox Monday! I don’t get that many books in the mail, so I probably can’t play too often :-).

  41. January 23, 2009 7:23 am

    My response is posted! Have a good Friday!
