Mailbox Monday - April 27, 2009

This week was a little more "normal" than some of my other ones in recent memory! Maybe I can start catching up!

BEST INTENTIONS by Emily Listfield

A YEAR OF PLEASURES by Elizabeth Berg - I received this one because I participated in ReadingGroupGuides.com 2009 Book Group Survey. I am pretty sure that I read this one a few years ago so I'll probably be passing it on to someone in my family.

THE GREATEST KNIGHT
(ARC) by Elizabeth Chadwick -- I received this book from Danielle at Sourcebooks for a book blog tour at the end of the summer.

HUNGER
by Elise Blackwell

101 WAYS YOU CAN HELP SAVE THE PLANET BEFORE YOU'RE 12! by Joanne O'Sullivan

MERCURY IN RETROGRADE (ARC) by Paula Froelich

And because I called into the BlogTalk Radio show with George Pelecanos, I received a big box (actually two) filled with his books:

THE SWEET FOREVER

KING SUCKERMAN
SHOEDOG
RIGHT AS RAIN
HELL TO PAY
HARD REVOLUTION
SOUL CIRCUS
DRAMA CITY
THE NIGHT GARDENER
THE TURNAROUND

What did you get last week?

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
