Mailbox Monday #25

I really have stuck with this meme, and I can say I am proud. I love sharing what came in the mail the previous week, even though I am still waiting for my L.L. Bean messenger bag, which seems to be missing in action.

Ok, back to Mailbox Monday, sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page; Here's what I got:



1. Fatal Light by Richard Currey, which I purchased at last weekend's reading with Currey at The Writer's Center.







2. The Whole Truth by David Baldacci (audiobook), which I won from Dawn at She Is Too Fond of Books







3. Lit Windowpane by Suzanne Frischkorn, which I received from the poet for review.








4. Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch, which I received from Hatchette for review.







5. Follow Me by Joanna Scott, which I also received from Hatchette for review and an Early Birds Blog Tour








6. The Last Queen by C.W. Gortner, 2 copies for a giveaway with Pump Up Your Book Promotion and the author.







7. The Red Leather Diary by Lily Koppel, which is th latest selection for the Book Club Girl show.







8. Season of Flowers and Dust by Gregg Mosson; this was one of the three free book selections at yesterday's Conversations & Connections writer's conference and is written by a former colleague of mine, and he's a former writing group member. He even was kind enough to sign it for me.





9. Your Ten Favorite Words by Reb Livingston, which I purchased at the Conversations & Connections conference from the poet, whose blog I've followed for a long while and finally got to meet face-to-face. She graciously signed it as well.


That's it from my mailbox. What did you get?

The Red Leather Diary is one that I've got to find some time for soon. (Not that I own it yet, but I need to move it higher on my wish list.)

Anna said...

Looks like you got a bunch of great books! I thought it was great getting to hear Gregg read. I knew he'd be happy to sign the book for you.

Thanks everyone for stopping by the mailbox this week.

Marcia said...

Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. I loved 'The Last Queen' though I'll admit the new cover I'm seeing kinda throws me for a loop. It reminds me of something I'd expect to see on a historical, romantic fiction book which this book most certainly is not.
