Mailbox Monday (February 16)

What did you find in your mailbox this past week? For other Mailbox Monday posts, head over to Marcia’s blog, The Printed Page.

I recently signed up for two blog tours (my first) and both books arrived this week:

My Little Red Book edited by Rachel Kauder Nalebuff (courtesy of Hachette)
Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel (courtesy of Unbridled Books)

Look for my reviews in March and June!


  1. I really enjoyed reading My Little Red Book. Such a great thing.

  2. Avis I am doing both those tours too. Can't wait to see what you think of the books.

  3. Enjoy! My mailbox was empty this week : (

  4. I had no mail due to holiday. Can you tell me what a blog tour is? I haven't heard of that before. Thank you!

  10. Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. Enjoy your books!

  11. Thanks, everybody, for your comments!

    Bingo, I apologize for not answering your question sooner! A blog tour is basically a virtual book tour. They can happen in one day (where a whole bunch of bloggers post reviews, author interviews and/or guest posts by the author on the same day) or over a series of days/weeks/months. So instead of going city to city on an actual book tour, the author goes from blog to blog, commenting, answering questions and/or guest posting. Hope that answers your question!
