Mailbox Monday + blogger meet-up (August 3)

Mailbox Monday buttonNothing appeared in my mailbox this week, which I wouldn’t normally mind except that I’m leaving on vacation next Monday. I’m worried that I’ll miss some of my packages as happened last time I went away!

Still, no packages in the mail doesn’t mean no books as I met up with my blogging buddies yesterday in our teashop. We also welcomed two new members: Linda from Better with Books and junior member Michael, who blogs with his mom Cindy at Books Upon a Wee One’s Shelf. As usual, much fun ensued!

We always exchange books (of course), and this month I scored five: Until It’s Over by Nicci French and Grave Surprise* by Charlaine Harris from Donna at Bookbound, After You by Julie Buxbaum from Tina at Bookshipper, and The Promised World by Lisa Tucker and Summer House by Nancy Thayer from Cindy at Cindy’s Love of Books. Thanks, guys!

Head over to Cindy’s, Donna’s and Linda’s blogs to read their (more detailed) posts about this meeting!

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 really wasn’t sure I would like this book (I’m not really into the paranormal genre), but I’ve already started reading it and I’m loving it so far!


  1. I really want to read The Promised World..I love Lisa Tucker! Great mailbox! Mine is here!

  2. Whenever I read about your meet-ups, it makes me wish I could find some local bloggers.

  3. Avis you got some really good books from the meet up. I think after I am done with the Sookie books I am going to check out Charlaine's other books. Can't wait to hear what you think of it.

    BTW Michael was really happy to meet you yesterday.

  4. Avis, I hope you get packages your expecting this week.

    You got some nice books too. The Promised World looks good.

  5. lol, I don't think my post is more detailed, but okay.

    I hope you get some books in the mail soon so you can take them with you when you're on vacation. I took some books with me when I went away too, but I must say that I didn't read as much as I had wanted too. I couldn't but fall asleep in the car. =P

  6. I've got A Promised World too. Great mailbox!

  7. I always seem to worry about packages coming when I'm away too. I am glad that this year I have the private mail box (thanks to a mail thief who stole packages right off my porch). At least I know they'll be safe.

    Looks like you got some good ones there! I'm going to be reading The Promised World soon. I can't wait.

  8. How lovely that you all meet up and exchange books. Especially as you all have blogs.

  9. How great that you guys meet up. Enjoy your books!

  10. I wish there were other bloggers within meeting distance from me! You are all so lucky.

  11. Next time you're gone, just have your packages forwarded to me. I'll make sure you get them :)

    I always stop my mail when I am gone. That way I don't miss anything.

  12. Have a great week in reading and vacation.
