In My Mailbox

This is my favorite post of the week.  I get to hang out with all of you and share not only what the highlights of the past week were… but the treasures I found in my mailbox as well!

Thank you as always to Story Siren for this wonderful Meme that encourages us book bloggers to share what came out of our mailbox this week.  Be sure to check out Kristie’s site and see what she had in her mailbox as well as many other book bloggers who participate in this weekly.

here is the mailbox:

  • Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran is an ARC that came from Book Browse through First Impressions
  • That Certain Spark by Cathy Marie Hake is a review copy from Bethany House
  • A Surrendered Heart by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller is a review copy from Bethany House
  • You Were Born For This by Bruce Wilkenson is for a Sept 14 – 18 Blog Tour with Giveaway from Randomhouse
  • Love Has A Face by Michele Perry is a review copy from Bethany House
  • Book Lust is a fun Reading Journal I received from my wonderful friend Wendy who I had loaned a few books to earlier this year.  This was her thank you to me and I LOVE IT!!!  Seriously Wendy, come get books any time!

  • My Life in France by Julia Child w/ book bag, apron, and book light!  (I am horribly embarassed to say that I do not remember where I won this from.  If it was you, or you do know who this came from please let me know so i may the correction here)

So you may be looking at this weeks mail box loot and be thinking” how did she win all of those books”? Well, I visit a lot of blogs.  A lot. If they have contests with books I would like to read I sign up to win.  Easy as that.  I obviously sign up for way more than I win, but as long as I am visiting a blog and they are offering a give away of a good read, I like to sign up.  Here are the current giveaways I am offering and here are a few great giveaways from around the blogesphere.

The final thing I like to do as I wrap up my week is go back and point out some of the posts I have done in the last week.  As I tend to post so frequently, I like to review what has happened this past week in the event you are just stopping in.

  1. Sweet! And soon, you’ll be able to add some Katherine Neville to the list. 🙂

  2. What a great week! Congratulations on all of your contest winnings! I’m trying to be good and not enter so many, but sometimes I can’t resist. Book contests are my weakness. *L*

    Most of these titles are new to me, so I’ll have to go check them out. Enjoy!

  3. Love the slide show! And you got pretty cool stuff, kiddo!

  4. Nice stack! Steve read Sam Moffie’s book. It’s very different.

  5. Looking forward to your interview of Kalem Nation. Been hearing a lot about Bran Hambric.

  6. A book bag and apron – too cool!

    • I know – isnt that funny! I feel really bad that I can not remember where I won this and I can not find an email on it either that states that I won it…

  7. Congrats on all of your wins! I have just recently found book blogging and every time I see a contest that I might like I enter! LOL! It has been super fun, that’s for sure!

    You look as though you will be busy for some time happy reading! Enjoy!

    Also, thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂

  8. Looks like you received some great books there! I’m looking forward to reading Cleopatra’s Daughter. I really enjoyed Nefertiti by the same author. Winning books in giveaways is so much fun, isn’t it? I hope you have a great week!

  9. wow. That’s awesome. I’m waiting for my copy of Cleopatra’s daughter 🙂

    have fun with your books!

    about having no internet reception and more reading time. you know..I wouldn’t mind that either. I should run away to timbuktu or something. 😛

    • I know…. I hate to be away from the internet (addiction anyone?) but I sure get a lot of reading done when it isnt an option. 🙂 When I was in Rochester a couple weekends ago with my girlfreinds for the flea market I read three books between the car ride on Friday and the car ride home on Sunday

  10. You got wonderful books. Happy reading!

    Mondays: What’s up?

  11. Another great week for your mailbox, and I have to say that the apron is a nice added touch.

    • LOL…. I was shocked when I opened the box. I must have signed up for the giveaway somewhere. I am all about the book bag – however if my book club ever reads Julie and Julia I will suggest we cook and then – I will wear the apron. 🙂

  12. I’m eagerly awaiting my copy of Cleopatra’s Daughter. Moran is a great writer.

  13. justicejenniferreads

    You do have a rather large amount of incoming books, which is awesome. Not sure if I could keep up with it all. I already feel like I’m following more blogs than I can handle! Not sure how you do it all, but I am sure glad that you do!

    • Its a lot of fun and since this last week 4 of the books were winnings from giveaways I can read them whenever. I do really enjoy it but I find as I have become more experienced that I am more choosy on the books I accept as my reading pile is not lacking. 🙂

  14. You scored with the Julia Child book and set! What a great prize! We went to the theater to see Julie & Julia this afternoon, but apparently that theater doesn’t do matinees during the week. 😦
