Mailbox Monday -- January 18

It's time for another Mailbox Monday, the weekly meme hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page where book lovers share the titles they purchased, received for review, or otherwise obtained during the past week.

I added just 3 new books to my shelves this week, which was a relief after trying to find space for the spoils of the family book-buying spree!


The Help by Kathryn Stockett, which I won from Presenting Lenore.  I've been dying to read  this  book!







The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M. Edsel with Bret Witter, from Hachette for review.









Get Lucky by Katherine Center, from Random House for an upcoming TLC Book Tour






What books did you add to your shelves recently?

I'm doing the Get Lucky tour too. I heard Robert Edsel speak at SIBA and I have to tell you he's passionate about the men he wrote about. He had a real Nazi scrapbook with him that was unbelievable to see.

Oh, "The Help" was a fabulous read!

And the new Katherine Center book sounds great, too. I've read a couple of her other books.
