Mailbox Monday #93

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the tour) has gone on tour since Marcia at The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Shanyn at Chick Loves Lit.  Kristi of The Story Siren continues to sponsor her In My Mailbox meme.  Both of these memes allow bloggers to share what books they receive in the mail or through other means over the past week.

Just be warned that these posts can increase your TBR piles and wish lists.

Here’s what I received:

1.  Going Away Shoes by Jill McCorkle, another surprise from Algonquin.

2.  Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris, which I purchased from Powell’s with a gift certificate and it’s autographed.

3.  Mind Games by Carolyn Crane, which I purchased from Powell’s as well.  It’s not autographed, but you may recognize the name of the author as none other than The Trillionth Page.

4.  The World Is Bigger Now by Euna Lee, which I received randomly from Random House.

What did you receive in your mailbox?


  1. First Time Visitor…great blog.

    Hop on over to mine for a Mailbox Monday, a Teaser, Tuesday, and a review of I’d Know you Anywhere by Laura Lippman.


  2. I received Euna Lee’s book also. I can’t wait to read it. I couldn’t remember requesting it but wasn’t sure. I did want to read it either way. Should be interesting.

  3. I read Laura and Lisa Ling’s memoir of about the girls’ captivity in N. Korea – it would be interesting to hear Euna’s perspective.

  17. Oh lucky duck about the autographed Sookie! That book definitely isn’t one of my favorites in this series. It’s still good because it’s Harris but it read more like filler to me.
