Mailbox Monday #10

Welcome to my 10th edition of Mailbox Monday, sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page. Ok, it’s on a Sunday again.

Here’s what I got in my mailbox before the Christmas holiday:

1. Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker, which I won at A Circle of Books. Thanks Toni and Mariam at Hatchette Group.

2. The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb, which I received for the next Book Club Girl on January 27 at 7PM. I had no idea that this would a signed first edition volume. I was tickled pink when it came in the mail.

The Bookish gifts I received over the holidays:

3. The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry, which Anna at Diary of an Eccentric got me. I’ve heard so many great things about this book, and I even got a copy for Suey on her birthday, though I hadn’t read it or owned it yet. I can’t wait to dive on in.

4. The Rest of Her Life by Laura Moriarty, which came from Anna as well. This one is an audio book, which will be great for those commutes into work with the hubby.

5. Mystic River by Dennis Lehane, which came from Carrie at Care’s Online Book Club through the Book Bloggers Christmas Swap 2008, sponsored by Nymeth and Dewey. This book has been on my to-read list for a while.

6. The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith, which also came from Carrie, my Secret Santa. This is another of those books that has been on my to-read list. I can’t wait to dig into this one.
