Mailbox Monday #49

Welcome to another Mailbox Monday, sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page, on Sunday.

I had a slow week until the National Book Festival happened!  Yes, I lose all self-control.  First, let's check out the books I received in my mailbox, and then I'll show you all the National Book Festival goodies.

1.  Perfect Timing by Jill Mansell

2.  Set Your Compass True by Signe Bergstrom

3.  The Day the Falls Stood Still by Cathy Marie Buchanan (which I reviewed; this copy is for a giveaway)

4.  The Company by K.J. Parker

5.  Titanic's Last Secrets by Brad Matsen

Ok, now for the National Book Festival goodies:

6.  The Pocket U.S. Constitution (I actually got this at the U.S. Capitol because I've always wanted one)

7.  How to Read a Poem by Edward Hirsch

8.  The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien

9.  Going After Cacciato by Tim O'Brien

10.  Say Uncle by Kay Ryan

11.  Blood Dazzler by Patricia Smith

12.  Poetry Out Loud Anthology

What did you get in your mailbox?  What did you get at the National Book Festival, if you were there? 

I may get other books since I am headed to the Baltimore Book Festival today.  But those will be in the next mailbox.

I bet the National Book Festival was like walking into a treasure trove filled with books. :-) It looks like you selected quite a few good ones. I really want to read The Things They Carried. I had given my father a copy of that many years ago for his birthday and he loved it, but I still haven't read it.

What a bounty! I have that Poetry Out Loud anthology and it's wonderful. There's nothing like hearing spoken poetry.

I'll be looking forward to your review of How to Read a Poem. That should be an interesting book.

Only a book blogger would call 5 books in the mail slow!

Great week! I'm jealous of the Tim O'Brien and Jill Mansell books.
