Mailbox Monday - February 16, 2009

Last week was awesome as far as books go. I received loads of surprises, and what's better than packages filled with surprises! Here's a list of what I got in my mailbox:

RESISTANCE by Owen Sheers

THE SUM OF OUR DAYS by Isabel Allende -- This book is courtesy of Book Club Girl for the BlogTalk Radio show on February 25th.

ZOE LUCKY AND THE GREEN GABLES' MYSTERY by M. Carol Coffeey

THE SOUL THIEF by Charles Baxter

A FREE LIFE by Ha Jin

OLIVE KITTERIDGE by Elizabeth Strout -- This one was a total surprise, but what a terrific one. I think the neighbors heard my screams!

SHANGHAI GIRLS by Lisa See -- Ditto (maybe even louder screams)

THE ITALIAN LOVER by Robert Hellenga -- I have wanted to read this one and thanks to Hachette I am doing a 5 book giveaway.

QUIET BUNNY by Lisa McCue

THE WRITING ON MY FOREHEAD by Nafisa Hafi

What did you get last week?

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

Wow - you had a great week! I'm hoping to eventually get a copy of the Italian Lover - it sounds great. I don't know what Olive Kitteridge is about - so will have to look it up!

Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

Nice variety!

I don't think I've ever screamed before but I've done a "Yes!" with the proper hand/arm movement and my 3 year old is always, "What? What?" LOL

Now when I get a book she gets just as excited and we fight over who gets to open it!

Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. 'The Italian Lover' will continue to languish in my TBR pile a bit longer as I'll be reading 'Shanghai Girls' next week.
