Mailbox Monday #155

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. This month’s host is the Let Them Read Books.

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.  The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston, which I received from the publisher after borrowing Anna‘s copy and reviewing it.

2. The Kitchen Counter Cooking School by Kathleen Flinn, which I won from Wordy Evidence of the Fact.

What did you receive?


  1. Loved Frankie Pratt and the cooking book looks good. Happy reading!

  2. Dawn - She Is Too Fond of Books says

    The art and ephemera in FRANKIE PRATT are so detailed — as much fun to look at as it is to read!

  3. I bought Frankie Pratt last week. I’m a few chapters in and really enjoying it. I also reviewed Kitchen Counter recently. I bought 2 copies for Christmas gifts! Have a good week.

  6. Frankie Pratt is one you want to keep on your bookshelf so that was nice for them to send you a copy. It sure is a treasure! The Kitchen Counter Cooking School is one on my wish list! I have seen so many good reviews for it! Enjoy both books!
