Mailbox Monday - June 29, 2009


Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

Don't be fooled by that sweet, innocent-looking mailbox on the left. It's been conjuring up some dangerous packages that are hot HOT HOT ! Most of these books were received as contest wins, but some I requested, and others I accepted for review. This windfall has caused me to hit the breaks for a little bit though. I've actually begun to ignore offers for free ARCs and turn down review requests -- something I couldn't imagine doing a year ago! These books arrived over the last 2-3 weeks -- I just haven't been able to do a post every Monday. (Frankly, with all of these to read, how will I ever post again?!)
