Mailbox Monday #26

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page. Boy, I am tired after yesterday's read-a-thon. I haven't stayed up that late since the Olympics were on television. I decided to take the lazy way out and photography my stack of books I received over the last week, rather than search for covers all over the Web. Ok, let's check out these books.


Here's the list (Bottom Up):

1. 2 copies of Reunion by Theresa Fowler for a May Tour; You guessed it, one's for a giveaway.

2. Annie's Ghosts by Steve Luxenberg from the publisher for the WWII Reading Challenge.

3. This One Is Mine by Maria Semple, which I received from the author for review.

4. Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult; I won it from Book Club Girl

5. Rooftops of Tehran by Mahbod Seraji, which I received for review from Authors On the Web.

6. An Equal Music by Vikram Seth, which I received from Jenny Brown at Shelf Love; I won it from her giveaway.

7. More of Me Disappears by John Amen, which I received from the poet and founder of Pedestal Magazine.

8. The Painter From Shanghai by Jennifer Cody Epstein, which I received for a TLC Book Tour in June.

9. The Air Between Us by Deborah Johnson, which I won from Book Club Girl.

10. Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel, which I got from Library Thing Early Reviewers. Who knew they would actually give me more early reviewing books.

I also took a photo of a special treat I won over at Scobberlotch during Karen's one year book-a-versary!


What did you get in your mailbox?

These are some lovely books, especially Rooftops of Tehran. I googled the book and loved the cover. I hope you enjoy all the books Serena.

Serena said...

I decided after read-a-thon that I would take a short cut! LOL

I love the cover of Rooftops of Tehran as well.

Pedestal Mag sounds familiar. I love getting new poetry collections. Looks like a good week. Kudos to you for completing the read-a-thon.

Handle Care is one I would really like to read--how lucky to have won one! You had a great mailbox this week.

Wow, exciting week! You've got some great titles and an awesome bonus gift. Is that a journal? I look forward to the Picoult book. I've really liked all of her titles I've read so far. Enjoy!

Serena said...

wrighty: it is indeed a writing journal...I am tickled pink about it.

What a great stack of books, Serena!

I started reading THE PAINTER FROM SHANGHAI yesterday ... It's both well-written and a great story, I can't put it down!
