I’m Hosting Mailbox Monday #147

First, I would like to congratulate Emily on winning My God, What Have We Done? by Susan V. Weiss from the last Mailbox Monday giveaway.

Stay tuned for the next giveaway later on in the post, but for now, let’s get to this week’s post.

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 Booksfor 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.  The World We Found by Thrity Umrigar from Harper for review in January.

2.  The Partnership by Philip Taubman from Harper for review in January.

3. A Wreath of Down and Drops of Blood by Allen Braden from the library sale.

4. A Double Death on the Black Isle by A.D. Scott from Atria.

Please add your mailbox link to the Mr. Linky below:

Now, for the giveaway for the week. Only those with U.S. addresses are eligible for a paperback version of Where Am I Going by Michelle Cromer.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

Part travel guide, part memoir, Where Am I Going? Moving From Religious Tourist to Spiritual Explorer takes the reader on a journey to finding this meaning in the same way that Michelle Cromer did for herself, through seven stages that connect each of us to the deepest part of our souls. This inspiring story of Michelle’s own quest for meaning in her life is a welcome departure from the typical preachy self-help book. Always spiritual, sometimes dangerous, often exotic, her search–as told by this funny, complex woman is a powerful lesson for anyone who also finally asks the Big Questions and begins their own spiritual journey and quest for purpose.
