Mailbox Monday -- August 24

Boy, the weekend sure goes by fast! Between going to the movies to see Inglourious Basterds with Serena, finishing up school shopping for The Girl (she goes back on the 31st), and getting an emergency visit from the plumber (at least the leasing office arranged and paid for it), I didn't have much time to relax.

But now it's time for another Mailbox Monday, kindly hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page, where bookish folk share the books they received in the mail, checked out of the library, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the last week. I missed last week because I was sick, so here's what I received over the last two weeks:


One Scream Away
by Kate Brady, a contest win from Pudgy Penguin Perusals


I received the first four Betsy-Tacy books from HarperCollins for an upcoming TLC Book Tour:



Betsy-Tacy
by Maud Hart Lovelace


Betsy-Tacy and Tib by Maud Hart Lovelace



Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill
by Maud Hart Lovelace



Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown by Maud Hart Lovelace



The Day the Falls Stood Still
by Cathy Marie Buchanan, from Hyperion via LibraryThing Early Reviewers



Soul Survivor: The Reincarnation of a World War II Fighter Pilot
by Bruce and Andrea Leininger with Ken Gross, from Hachette



Night of Flames
by Douglas W. Jacobson, from McBooks Press for an upcoming blog tour



The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks, from Hachette



The Luckiest Penny by Deborah Weed and Ernest Socolov (illus.), from the author


What books did you welcome into your home recently?

I got the Betsy-Tacy books as well and I bet you and The Girl will enjoy them! I never read them as a young girl and look forward to reading them now. I also got The Day the Falls Stood Still from LT Early Reviewers, I believe. I didn't receive a letter this time as I usually do with a book from them..did you?

Anna said...

~Jeanne: LOVED IT! My review with Serena is here.

~Natalie: Thank you! You're so kind.

~Bonnie: Nope, no letter, but I've never received one with a book from Hyperion.
