Mailbox Monday

I received only one book by mail this week. It is the book I have been waiting for by The Darker Side by Cody McFadyen . Also my mom came up this weekend and delivered some books that she thought I would enjoy. Here is the list.

  1. 1. So Dark the Night by Margaret Daley
  2. 2. Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas by James Patterson
  3. 3. Bearing Gifts by Aimee Thurlo
  4. 4. City of Bones by Michael Connelly
  5. 5. Dangerous Minds by LouAnne Johnson
  6. 6. Gallagher's Lady by Carol Jerina
  7. 7. Compromised Security by Cassie Miles
  8. The Hart Brothers:Rey & Leo by Diana Palmer
  9. Desperado by Diana Palmer
  10. Rhett Butler's People by Donald McCaig

I went to the Salvation Army and bought some books. I know that this is for books received in the mail, but I am including them anyway. I love going to the Salvation Army and looking for books. You never know what you will find. You can find some out of print books that you have been looking for or newer books. And in some cases you will fine nothing. And the price is nice; 50 cents for paperback and 1.00 dollar for hardcover. Here is the list.

  1. The Last Precinct by Patricia Cornwell
  2. Black Notice by Patricia Cornwell
  3. Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich
  4. Innocent As Sin by Elizabet Lowell
  5. The Carriage House by Carla Neggers
  6. Devices and Desires by P.D. James
  7. Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns
  8. Harvest by Tess Gerritsen

I also bought H.P. and the Sorcerer's Stone. I have the paperback already, but I wanted the hardcover. It only cost 1.00 so why not.

While I was at Target I found this book that I thought would be fun. It is called The Abstinence Teacher by Tom Perrotta. It is about Ruth Ramsey who is the sex ed teacher and her openness is not appreciated by all of her students and their parents. Tim Mason who is a born again Christian. But when these two people begin talking to each other instead of disagreeing a surprising friendship begins.

I hope you all don't mind that I included every book I got this week not just the one I received in the mail.

Visit The Printed Page to see what others have received in the mail.

Happy Reading

I have been enjoying your reviews. Thank you! I'm wondering how you receive your books by mail to review though? Would you mind sharing how that works?

Also, Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas is a fabulous read! I am sure you will enjoy it! I wish Patterson would write more books like this one.

I am glad you enjoy my reviews.

I work with Pump Up Your Book Promotions. Every month some of the tour coordinators email a list of books that they are promoting. I pick the ones I would like to review. We decide on a date together. I receive the books for free and then I review them.

Their website is


I am looking forward to reading these books.

Thank you for stopping by the 'Mailbox' this week. It doesn't matter if they come by mail or some other way. Anyway they come into your house is fine. It just happens that most of my mine come through the mail and I thought 'Mailbox Monday' was kinda catchy.

Nice haul ~ now you just have to find the time to read 'em all.

For awhile I had my book addiction under control. My mom was my only suppiler, but this year I relapsed. I discovered Salvation Army, book challenges, book blogs and the world of books on the internet. So now my book shelf is bending under the pile of books waiting to read.

My books and I need to take a three hour tour on a boat and crash on a desert island. Then I would have time to read. Haha:)
