Mailbox Monday -- April 20

I'm still tired from the Read-a-Thon, and I was thankful for a lazy Sunday. But now it's the start of a new week and time for another Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

Here's a list of the books I received and will be reading soon:

Annie's Ghosts by Steve Luxenberg (from LibraryThing Early Reviewers)

Nella Last's Peace: The Post-War Diaries of Housewife, 49 edited by Patricia & Robert Malcolmson and Our Longest Days: People's History of the Second World War edited by Sandra Koa Wing (from Meryl Zegarek Public Relations Inc.)

Let the Shadows Fall Behind You by Kathy-Diane Leveille (from the author)

I also received a Book Buddy from Reading Comfort/Amanda Crawford Designs, which I'll be reviewing later this week. I used it all through the Read-a-Thon, so it's been through a lot already. Click here to see the design I received.

What books did you welcome into your home recently?

Serena said...

Wow, those are some great books. I also have Annie's Ghosts, but not from the Library Thing.

I think you liked that book buddy so much you fell asleep with it...lol

Kathrin said...

Hmm, Anna, I haven't heard of a single one of your books! But I hope you'll enjoy them and let us know more :-)

My mailbox is here, btw :-)

Lenore said...

OOOh - a book buddy. Gotta check it out.

Teddyree said...

I haven't heard of any of these either but I hope you have a wonderful reading week once you're recovered from the read-a-thon :-)

Missy said...

I love the book buddy! I definitely need one of those.
Enjoy your new reads! :)

Dar said...

Lucky you getting the Book Buddy. Seems a lot of people have been.

bermudaonion said...

You had a good week. I'll be reviewing my Book Buddy soon, too. I love mine!

I haven't heard of any of your books either. Enjoy your books!

Stephanie said...

You know, I never thought of asking my seven year old if she wants to participate! Maybe next year!!

Kristi said...

Someone else got Annie's Ghost this week too and I already added it to my TBRs. It looks really good!

Enjoy your books!

Wanda said...

Let the Shadows Fall Behind You sounds mysterious and it has a Canadian connection ... I'll have to keep an eye out for your review of that one. That bookbuddy looks comfy, elegant and practical — like the 4 ribbon bookmarks too!

Thanks for visiting today. :)Happy reading, Anna!

Everyone is getting a Book Buddy! I feel totally neglected! LOL.

I am also a bit out of it from the read-a-thon. It's like my brain cannot handle anything too heavy right now.

Anna said...

Blodeuedd: I'm a sucker for a good title, too. I'll admit that a good title doesn't always translate into a good book, though.

Serena: I put the Book Buddy down before I fell asleep. I was afraid I'd use it as a pillow and wrinkle by book. LOL

Kathrin: Thanks!

Lenore: I'll be posting my Book Buddy review today.

Teddyree: Thanks! I started reading right after my long post-read-a-thon nap. LOL

Missy: Thanks! The Book Buddy is great!

Dar: I was so surprised and thrilled when the contacted me. I've been looking for something like this for a long time.

Bermudaonion: I'll have to check out your review. I love mine, too.

avisannschild: Thanks!

Stephanie: That would be great if you read together at the next read-a-thon in October!

Kristi: I flipped through it, and it looks good. Hope you get a chance to read it.

Wanda: Thanks! I'll be reading and reviewing that book soon.

Ti: The read-a-thon was a major brain drain, but it was so fun. I hope you get your hands on a Book Buddy soon!
