I’m Hosting Mailbox Monday #146

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon 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. Thanks to Amused by Books for hosting last month.

As host for this month, I have a couple giveaways planned, but mostly its about sharing books and the love of reading, so I hope in addition to leaving your post links in Mr. Linky that you’ll peek around Savvy Verse & Wit.

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. Survivors by James Wesley Rawles, which came unsolicited from the publisher.

2.  Waking by Ron Rash from Hub City Press for review.

3.  You Don't Sweat Much for a Fat Girl by Celia Rivenbark, a win from Bermudaonion.

4.  Jane Austen Made Me Do It by Laurel Ann Nattress from the editor for review.

5. The Last Nude by Ellis Avery unrequested from Penguin.

6. Trevor's Song by Susan Helene Gottfried of West of Mars, which I purchased and had autographed.

7. To the End of the War (unpublished fiction) by James Jones from the publisher, Open Road Media, for review. I have a paperback version, but could only find the Kindle link.

For today’s giveaway, enter in the comments to win My God, What Have We Done? by Susan V. Weiss, which I reviewed last week. You’ll receive my gently used copy.

Deadline to enter is Oct. 8, 2011, at 11:59 PM EST. I’ll announce the winner at the next Mailbox Monday.

What did you get this week?  Leave your link, and a comment if you wish to enter the giveaway or just chat.
