Mailbox Monday #119

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Library of Clean Reads .  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.  What Would Mr. Darcy Do? by Abigail Reynolds from Sourcebooks for review in April.

2.  Wickham’s Diary by Amanda Grange from Sourcebooks for review in April.

3.  The Jane Austen Handbook by Margaret C. Sullivan unrequested from Quirk Books and Random House.  The book is due out in March.

These are the books I received from the office baby shower; aren’t my co-workers fantastic?!

4.  Dr. Seuss’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!, which I had two of so I gave a copy to Anna for her nephew.

5.  Jamberry by Bruce Degen

6.  In My Meadow by Sara Gillingham and Lorena Siminovich, and this one has a puppet!

7.  But Not the Hippopotamus by Sandra Boynton

8.  Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs! by Sandra Boynton

And yet more unsolicited review copies; these from Atticus Books:

9. Nazareth, North Dakota by Tommy Zurhellen, slated for publication in April.

10. The Bee-Loud Glade by Steve Himmer, slated for publication in April.

    Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings post!

  9. I am green with envy over your first three books!

  10. Haven’t received or purchased any book over the weekend. You really are a Jane Austen fan, seeing the different variants of the book you are reading. I hope none twists the characters, like making Wickham good and Darcy conniving…lol

    Happy reading!
