Mailbox Monday -- February 16

It's time for another Mailbox Monday!

Well, last week was a slow one for me. I received only one book, but that's okay since I have enough books to keep me occupied for years. Here's what I got:

Tender Graces by Kathryn Magendie (an ARC from Bell Bridge Books)

What books did you welcome into your home last week?

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page. Thanks, Marcia!

I hope you enjoy your book!

Julie P. said...

I know that feeling. I should stop accepting books too!

Kaye said...

Enjoy your book. The title sounds good. I've received a couple of books from that publisher and they were excellent.

Jo-Jo said...

One book is better than no books! The title sounds very interesting.

Luanne said...

I'm at the point where I have stopped requesting until I get caught up!

Serena said...

one book is better than none, but you missed your chance with the saturday book fair at my library. :)

Amy said...

That's such a beautiful title!

Alyce said...

Someday I'm going to have enough self control to have a slow week. Who knows, it might be this week, I didn't get anything today. Oh wait, today's a holiday! ;)

I know I have a slow week coming - I need to get caught up now! I have not heard of this publisher before though. . might have to check them out!

I'm trying to curb my enthusiasm for requesting books... I've never heard of this one.

naida said...

Didn't you have a million last week? I guess you aren't kidding about having enough for a year!

Shana said...

I know what you mean about being thankful for slow weeks!

Enjoy your gift. I read your review on the Suburban Dragon. I also received that. I'll review that too.

Happy week.

Bermudaonion: Thanks! Me, too.

Julie: I'm very picky with what I accept lately. I have to be with the amount of books that already have taken over our home.

Kaye: That's good to know. I hadn't heard of that publisher until they contacted me.

Jo-Jo: I'd take a no-book week or a couple of them just so I could catch up a bit. Oh, but I'd miss the joy of opening the packages!

Luanne: I'm only accepting ones that sound really good, and I let them know upfront it might be a few months before I can read it.

Serena: You don't know how much I wanted to go to that library sale. But staying home was for the best. I think.

Amy: I agree. And the cover is great, too, but I couldn't find a picture online.

Alyce: You, a slow week? Never! ;P

Wendi: Thanks!

Kristi: I haven't heard much about them, but the catalog they sent with the book seemed interesting.

avisannschild: I hadn't heard of it before they contacted me either. I couldn't find much about it online, but I read part of a short story by the author, and her writing seemed great.

Naida: And years, and years, and years...

Callista: Nope, I wasn't kidding at all!! :)

Shana: This week has been slow, too, and I'm certainly not crying. There's still today and Sat. though.

Wisteria: I'll keep an eye out for your review!

Marcia said...

Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. Maybe your mail person is one of those who hoards mail from their route instead delivering it!

Anna said...

Marcia: That wouldn't surprise me. We sometimes have problems receiving bills! That's never good! Thanks for hosting.
