Mailbox Monday #130; Library Loot #4

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at A Girl and Her Books, formerly The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is The Bluestocking Guide.  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 this week:

1.  Beatrice Munson by Lorena Bathey from the author for review in Sept./Oct.

2.  Dance Lessons by Aine Greaney from the author for review.

3.  Somewhere Over the Pachyderm Rainbow by Jennifer C. Wolfe from the poet for review.

4. The Sweetness of Tears by Nafisa Haji, which I purchased from Amazon.

5. Everyone Is Beautiful by Katherine Center, which I borrowed from Anna.

6. The Katyn Order by Douglas Jacobson, which I borrowed from Anna and I’m excited to read after the fantastic Night of Flames.

Library Loot:

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

1.  Ordinary Miracles by Erica Jong
