My First Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday, sponsored by The Printed Page, is something I've seen floating around the blogosphere for some time, but since I am less organized than other book reviewers, I often forget to write down what books I got that week and where they came from. This week, I made a concerted effort!

Here are the fruits of my labor:

1.
(I won this at A Patchwork of Books)

2. From the author Jane Pupek (Thanks, Jane!)

3. Scattered Leaves by Richard Roach from the author for a Pump Up Your Book Promotion Blog tour in November.

***Another giveaway from Savvy Verse & Wit. Win a copy of The Safety of Secrets by Delaune Michel! Go here, follow the rules, and enter.

FYI Readers:

On Oct. 28, I'll host an interview with Shannon Burke, author of Black Flies and Safelight, as well as a giveaway for Black Flies.

M. Ann Jacoby, the author of Life After Genius, will be touring Savvy Verse & Wit on Oct. 29, stay tuned for the review, interview, and giveaway!

I'm looking forward to receiving Tomato Girl myself. Scattered leaves is new to me, I'll have to look that one up. Welcome to Mailbox Mondays. I just started doing them myself a couple of weeks ago. It's fun to see what others got.
