Mailbox Monday - May 4, 2009

I had a pretty slow week until Friday, and then I was bombarded with books! My kids and I have already read two of the kids' books, but I need to get moving on the grown-up ones.

DORK DIARIES: TALES FROM A NOT-SO-FABULOUS LIFE (ARC) by Rachel Renee Russell

SACRED MOUNTAIN: EVEREST by Christine Taylor-Butler - I "won" this beautiful childrens' books on Twitter. I think my nine year old is going to really enjoy looking at it.

by Julianne Moore and illustrated by LeUyen Pham

THE SPARE ROOM
by Helen Garner

HOME SAFE by Elizabeth Berg

FODOR'S NEW YORK CITY 2009

DARLING JIM

THE LAST SECRET

FERN VERDANT & THE SILVER ROSE by Diana Leszczynski

I got an awesome tee-shirt from my new friends at GetGlue.com. If you haven't checked out what Glue can do for you, take a loot at the video!

You had another good week. The titles of Dork Diaries and Freckleface both caught my eye.

Melanie said...

I didn't get anything in my mailbox last week, which is just fine becuase I have lots of books to catch up on. You got a great list - Home Safe and You Belong To Me are two that I enjoyed.

I'm going to have to look into this Freckleface book - we really ARE dealing with a dodgeball bully right now!

Cindy said...

Wow - you had a great week, and I haven't read any of those, so I'm off to look a few up that sound like they might need to be added to my wish list.
