Mailbox Monday + blogger meet-up (October 26)

Mailbox Monday button
Although I’m eagerly awaiting a bunch of book wins (yay!), I only received one book in the mail this week: Dusk by David Doub, another BBAW scavenger hunt win. This one was sent to me by Jackie at Literary Escapism. (Thanks, Jackie!)

Yesterday, I got together with my blogging buddies, Cindy, Donna, Linda and Tina. (I’m still hoping that one of these days we can include Lucy in our gatherings!) There were fewer books exchanged this time, but I still came away with two, both from Tina: Cold Case by Kate Wilhelm (the latest book in the Barbara Holloway series) and Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials by Rosalind Wiseman. We spent a good chunk of time trying to figure out our BEA accommodations (yes, all five of us are hoping to be in New York City next May!). I think some of the other patrons in the tearoom may have found us a bit annoying as we pulled out our computers (thanks to Donna, who had brought two, I had one to play with too) and began calling out the names of various websites of interest in loud, excited voices!

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


  1. So jealous that you get to meet up with blogging buddies. Your get together sounds like it was fun : )

  2. The books look good and the meet-up sounds even better! I hope you all make it to BEA!

  3. Enjoy your new books! I'm hoping to be at BEA, too, and it would be great to meet you.
