Mailbox Monday #57




It's Monday again and we're here with another peep at my mailbox.  Mailbox Monday is sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page.  If you haven't checked out her blog, you should, especially since she started sharing her vacation photos from New Zealand and more.


Anyway, here's what came in the mail this week:



1.  Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford for a January tour date with TLC Book Tours.



2.  2 copies of When She Flew by Jennie Shortridge, one will be given away to a reader of my blog; naturally, it will be an international giveaway.



3.  Fire in the Lake by Frances FitzGerald, which is going in the box of giveaway books for the 2010 Viet Nam War Reading Challenge.  Stay tuned at War Through the Generations for more information on Dec. 1.  I got this copy in excellent condition from the library sale shelves for 50 cents.  Be advised that the cover image is not the same as the bargain book.

Clicking on titles and cover images will bring you to my Amazon Affiliates page; no purchases are necessary.

What did you get in your mailbox?

I am SO signing up for your challenge next year. I have no idea what I'm going to put on my list, but I'm doing it. I loved Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. Title is appropriate - it is bitter and sweet!

Sandy: I'll have a list of recommended books on Dec. 1 along with the challenge info.

Wow, Hotel...Bitter & Sweet is out in pb and I still haven't read it. Think I'll put it on my Christmas list! I received When She Flew on Saturday - really looking forward to reading it. Loved Eating Heaven.

Hotel On The Corner is really good. It's a very emotional book. Hope u read it soon.

Hotel looks so cute, I've seen that one a couple times lately. I didn't receive anything for Mailbox Monday, but I posted Musing Mondays if you're interested. Here's my link: http://thecrowdedleaf.wordpress.com/

Thanks everyone for visiting the mailbox, though I'm not sure I will be revisiting Fire in the Lake.
