Mailbox Monday - August 10, 2009


Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
If you'd like to join in, stop by Marcia's and leave a link -
or just browse through the comments to see what new books have been showing up.
Well, this is embarrassing . . . I was going to start this post off by saying how empty my mailbox has been lately but, obviously, that just isn't the case! Now, it has been several weeks since I posted a Mailbox Monday, and the last two weeks have been kind of slow but, I think you'll agree, I've go more than enough to keep me busy.

Thank you to everyone who sent me reading material!

Great Mailbox. I am really eyeballing Sworn to Silence. I need to get some reviews out to Library thing. I think I am sort of cut off.

Great Mailbox.

Great selection! Glad I could contribute the only audio book - I am starting to get worried about your vision with all that reading material ;-) and not to mention your poor mail person's back! Can't wait to read your thoughts on these.
