Mailbox Monday - January 12, 2009

Welcome to my first Mailbox Monday post! I have been reluctant to start posting my "book booty" because I wasn't sure that I would post regularly. But then I thought, "What the heck? Sometimes is better than never." So here it goes.

Some have said that it's the effects of the holidays, but it was a pretty slow week for me. I did get three terrific books though that I can't wait to read:

KISSING GAMES OF THE WORLD by Sandi Kahn Shelton -- I won a one day only contest from Fresh Fiction for a signed copy of this book and a $20 Starbucks gift card.

BEAT THE REAPER by Josh Bazell -- Miriam from Hachette Book Group USA sent me this book after I shamelessly begged her for a copy!

THE MUSIC TEACHER by Barbara Hall -- I received this book from the people at Algonquin Books. I've seen a few reviews and it looks great!

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

What did you get in your mailbox last week?

I remembered just now. I read an ARC of Beat the Reaper in August and have not written a review as yet. I liked it...

Here is mine

I still need to read Beat the Reaper, but it looks good.
And that starbucks gift card you mentioned has me very jealous. LOL

Welcome! I felt the same when I started, but now just love to participate, and have yet to have a week with nothing! :) I've got Beat the Reaper in my tbr pile - I've heard such great things!

Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi
