Mailbox Monday #47

Yes, it is Mailbox Monday, sponsored by Marcia of The Printed Page, on Sunday again!

Not too many books arriving in the mailbox these days, but I did head out to my local library sale and picked up some goodies for me and for Book Blogger Appreciation Week.

1. Inglourious Basterds by Quentin Tarantino; if you missed my joint review of the movie with Anna of Diary of an Eccentric, click on the link.

2. More of Me Disappears by John Amen from the poet.

3. Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin from Delacorte Press, which I believe I saw in Shelf Awareness.

4. Apologies to an Apple by Maya Ganesan, which Color Online let me borrow for review.

5. Seduce Me by Robyn DeHart, which I won from Pudgy Penguin Perusals.

From the library sale:

6. Hissy Fit by Mary Kay Andrews

7. Saving Fish From Drowning by Amy Tan

8. The Lake of Dead Languages by Carol Goodman

9. Solstice by Joyce Carol Oates

10. The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

11. Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby

12. The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King

13. Never Let Me Go by Kazou Ishiguro

14. The Greatest Generation Speaks: Letters and Reflections by Tom Brokaw

I'm sure you are wondering which of these books are for BBAW giveaways, but I'm going to leave you in suspense. You'll just have to come back during the week to find out.

All week, I'm trying something new for giveaways. If you order through one of my amazon affiliate program images, you will get 5 extra entries into each giveaway and for each book you buy. You just have to email me an order number/invoice.

What did you get in your mailbox?

Lots of great books, a very mixed bag I would say. Hope you enjoy reading them!

Good week Serena! Those library sales are thoroughly a joy. Oooh, I'm so excited to find out which ones we get to try for! I loved Never Let Me Go!

My week was even slower than yours, but I did get Alice I Have Been. Happy reading!

Serena said...

Bermudaonion: I think the library sale helped out tremendously with the busy mailbox! LOL

That is a nice looking mailbox post! I can't wait until the next library book sale here (only two weeks).

I haven't read any of the books, but I do own a couple of them. (Toni Morrison's and Ishiguro's books.)

Janel said...

It must be library sale week. I went to one too!

Kristen said...

This is fewer books in the mailbox?! Darn. I'd hate to see a big week for you. ;-)

Anna said...

Sorry I missed the library sale. :( But hubby and I are looking forward to reading Fever Pitch. Enjoy your new books!
