Mailbox Monday #66

Marcia at The Printed Page and Kristi of The Story Siren both sponsor memes in which bloggers share what books they’ve received in the past week.  I’m going to continue calling these Mailbox Mondays, but The Story Siren also has In My Mailbox.

1.  Beatles Rock Band for Wii!  I won this at Presenting Lenore; if you haven’t checked out her blog, you should.  Pictures are forthcoming…

2.  Venom by Joan Brady, which I received from Book Chick City as a participant in her 2010 Thriller & Suspense Reading Challenge and it is a U.K. title.

3.  City of Refuge by Tom Piazza, which I received from Jen at Devourer of Books for her Feb. 16 appearance on That’s How I Blog, which will feature a 20 minute book club discussion of this book!

4.  Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann, which is for TLC Book Tour in May.

And two holdovers from the last mailbox; both I purchased with gift card money:

5.  Zombie Haiku by Ryan Mecum

6.  Birthing House (audio) by Christopher Ransom, this is the latest book club selection.

What did you get in your mailbox?
