Mailbox Monday #51


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

I've been relatively good in terms of not buying or accepting review copies in the last few weeks, but now the Book Blogger Appreciation Week wins seem to be starting to flow into the mailbox.

Here's what made its way into my mailbox:



1.  The Lazy Environmentalist on a Budget by Josh Dorfman, which I got in the mail from Jeannie at I Like to Be Here When I Can.



2.  The Dogs of Babel by Carolyn Parkhurst, which I won during the Dog Days of Summer at Literate Housewife, and boy did we go through mail hell with this package from Amazon.



3.  Night of Flames by Douglas Jacobson for a Pump Up Your Book Promotion Tour near the end of October; this is yet another mailing fiasco--good thing Anna had a copy I've started to read.



4.  Girl With a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier, which I won during Book Blogger Appreciation Week.

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

That is a great list! I love the cover of the Dogs of Babel. I'd read it for the cover alone!

I have not read a Chevalier book but the movie was beautiful

Lucky girl winning these. And I hear you on the mail disasters of late. I am missing two tour books, one of which I'm supposed to host a week from today. ::sigh:: Here's hoping it arrives with today's mail!

Oooh I hadn't heard of The Dogs of Babel before but I like the sound of it! I'm a sucker for stories like that, like "Chicken Soup for the Animal Lover's Soul" and things like that ;)

Jenners said...

I really loved "The Dogs of Babel" and can't wait to see what you think of it. I wrote about it for my first entry in "My Favorite Reads."

Jeannie said...

Sorry I'm late in responding, Serena. Hope you enjoyed the book.
