Mailbox Monday: July 25, 2011


Welcome to my fourth and final week of hosting Mailbox Monday during the month of July.  Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books (f/k/a: The Printed Page). I've enjoyed playing hostess and I've tried to visit everyone who posted. My sister and I have been recovering from pneumonia (can you believe it?!!) and my nephew from bronchitus, so I'm a little behind in postings, but I'll catch up over the next few days. Thank you to everyone who stopped by this month. Next month, your host for Mailbox Monday will be Staci at Life in the Thumb. Be sure and stop by with your mailbox news.

If you'd like to join in, leave a link or a comment and tell us . . .

What's in your mailbox?

And remember to check the bottom of the post for a special giveaway to all those who link up this week.
The first week's winner was Caitlin of Chaotic Compendiums, and she chose the arc copy of THE UNCOUPLING by Meg Wolitzer. The second week's winner is Lori at Psychotic State, and she chose THE ICING ON THE CUPCAKE by Jennifer Ross. The third week's winner is Andrea at So Many Books So Little Time and she has yet to choose her book.

I'm sorry you haven't been well, Gwendolyn. You got a really nice mailbox this week. I'd love to know what you think of Burnt Mountain. I really like Anne's books. Celia Rivenbark is a riot! Her new book looks like fun. Enjoy your new reads and have a great week.

Great titles! Enjoy your latest reads. :-)

Anna said...

Hope you feel better soon! At least you have some great-sounding books to keep you occupied. ;)

samstillreading said...

Where did that title come from - 'you don't sweat much for a fat girl' (although Robbie Williams has a line in Rudebox that's similar)?! It will certainly get people to look at the book!
Take care of yourself and stay warm. Thanks for the giveaway, hope you've had fun hosting.

Anne said...

Love the cover on the Paris Wife book. I'm going to have to find that one.

I am giving away the book I got last week. It is a graphic novel about the Oregon Trail. Looks like a perfect summer read for any kid into pioneers, adventure, etc.

Details on my MM post.
