Mailbox Monday -- March 23

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I've had more time to read and nap in my recliner since the death of my computer. Nothing new on that front, unfortunately, so I'm still hopelessly behind in blog reading. Still haven't replaced the bookcase either, but I bet that problem will be remedied a lot faster than the computer issues. My hubby must be getting sick of tripping over the numerous stacks of books all over our room.

Anyway, it's time for another Mailbox Monday! (Thanks to Marcia from The Printed Page for hosting!) I received more books than I expected.

Fairy Glade & Other Enchanting Tales by Dawn Beaumont-Lane (from the author...I'll be reviewing this one with The Girl)

The Secret by Beverly Lewis (from LibraryThing Early Reviewers...can't wait to read this one, as I have nearly all of Lewis' books!)

The Lost Hours by Karen White (for a book tour next month)

The Italian Lover by Robert Hellenga (Serena somehow received an extra copy and generously gave it to me. Thanks, buddy!)

Dear Anais: My Life in Poems for You by Diana M. Raab (from the author for a contest win at Savvy Verse & Wit)

Gray Apocalypse by James Murdoch (from the publisher)

Looks like I won't run out of things to read while I'm computer-less. Not that there was ever any doubt about that. ;)

What books did you welcome into your home recently?

I feel for you in the computer category. Mine was out of commission for about three weeks, and I was manic, depressed and twitchy. I'm sleeping much sounder now that I have my data back!

I can't wait to see what you think of The Lost Hours - it sounds good to me.

Nice load of books. I'll be doing The Lost Hours next month too.

Marie said...

I have The Italian Lover in my TBR. I'll keep an eye out for your review.

Staci said...

Wow!! I love all those titles you got. A co-worker just gave me The Secret today to read. I adore Beverly Lewis and I'm really anxious to dive into this one.

Have fun with all those great books and hopefully you'll get a bookcase soon to house all those great goodies!!

The Lost Hours sounds particularly intriguing. Enjoy your books!

Anna said...

~Serena: Yes, and two are thanks to you. :)

~Kaye: Glad to hear you enjoyed the book. I don't know when I'll get a chance to read it, but I'm looking forward to it.

~Nicole: Thanks! I just eat up every book Beverly Lewis writes, so I'm sure I'll enjoy this one.

~Sandy: Glad to hear your computer problems are over! I'm still sneaking in some blog time during my lunch break at work. Not ideal, and I'm still behind in blog reading, but at least I'm making some progress.

~Bermudaonion: This will be my second Karen White book. I hope I enjoy it as much as I did The House on Tradd Street.

~Wendi: Glad to hear it's getting good reviews! Hope you snag a copy soon.

~Dar: That's good to hear! I'll keep an eye out for your review.

~Marie: Not sure when I'll get to it. I'll look for your review, too.

~Staci: Still no new bookcase. Trying not to spend much money with the big increase in our health care costs coming in May. :( Glad to hear your a Beverly Lewis fan! Most people don't know who she is when I mention her books.

~Ramya: The only good thing about being computer-less at home is I'm reading more!

~Blodeuedd: Thanks so much for the award! It means a lot to me.

~avisannschild: Thanks! I can't wait to read it.

You got so many goodies last week! I have a few of those but haven't read any. I look forward to reading your reviews and The Girl's as well! :) Hope you're having a good week!

Anna said...

~Wrighty: Thanks! The Girl should be reviewing some books soon. She's just finished the entire Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I have a feeling she'll be reviewing more often during the summer when school's out.

Marcia said...

Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. Hopefully your boss won't notice these little side trips. 'The Italian Lover' sits in my TBR pile and 'The Lost Hours' on my wish list.

Alyce said...

I got the Beverly Lewis book from LT too!

Anna said...

Marcia: That's what lunch breaks are for. :) Thanks for hosting.

Alyce: I love Beverly Lewis. I can't wait to read it, and I hope you enjoy it, too.
