Mailbox Monday -- January 4

Welcome to the first Mailbox Monday of 2010!  This weekly meme is hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page, and lets book lovers share the titles they purchased, received for review, or otherwise obtained during the past week.  I added just one review copy, received two giveaway books, and bought a couple of books with Christmas gift cards.

For review:


Penguin Luck by Kay Mupetson, from Meryl L. Moss Media Relations Inc.  I couldn't pass this one up when I saw it was about a young professional visited by the ghosts of family members who perished in the Holocaust and want her to "carry on for them" as she juggles her career and romantic life.


Contest wins from Savvy Verse & Wit:





Holocaust Poetry compiled by Hilda Schiff









 The Penguin Book of First World War Poetry edited by Jon Silkin






Purchased:



Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford








Walking in Circles Before Lying Down by Merrill Markoe

Looks like you have some wonderful books that came in. My book club really struggled with Walking In Circles... we had fun reviewing it though. I will be interested in reading your thoughts on it. :)
