Mailbox Monday (November 9)

Mailbox Monday button
I received a box in the mail this week, which contained two hardcover copies of the same book: In Hovering Flight by Joyce Hinnefeld, sent to me by Unbridled Books. Why two copies? Well, it seems that very few people participated in the scavenger hunts organized for Book Blogger Appreciation Week, because I won a prize for both the Literary Scavenger Hunt and the Spiritual Scavenger Hunt. (I tried to pass on the second prize to someone else but there was apparently no one else to give it to.) While I’m a bit sad that so few people did the scavenger hunts (I thought they were a great idea), I’m happy to have an extra copy of this book to eventually give to one of you. I like to do giveaways in conjunction with reviews, though, so you’re going to have to wait a little while for it...



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. I don't know this book (well, I didn't until now, anyway). I'll have to check it out.

  2. The scavenger hunts were a great idea, but there was just too much other stuff going on that week to do them. I hope you enjoy your book!

  3. Well, at least you're going to read it and fill us in on it and then you're so sweet to give us a chance to win your other copy!!

  4. I guess it is a shame there wasn't more participation (I suspect people were just too overwhelmed) but it was good for you!

  6. I received a copy of this book several months ago, and I look forward to read it. I've heard it's very good. I won several giveaways that week too because there wasn't a lot of competition. It was a bit overwhelming.

  7. I'm glad that the books arrived and that you will have one for a giveaway. I was saddened that there was not another person to give it to.

    On the bright side, I have your other prizes and hope to mail them out next week. Keep an eye out.
