Mailbox Monday (September 20)

Mailbox Monday buttonMailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books they received during the previous week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists! Mailbox Monday, which was started by Marcia at The Printed Page, is on blog tour—this month, it’s hosted by Kathy at Bermudaonion’s Weblog.

I received one book in the mail this past week: Love Begins in Winter: Five Stories by Simon Van Booy, which I won from Wendy at Caribousmom during her birthday giveaway. I specifically requested this book because Wendy raved about Van Booy’s writing when she and I met in New York City at BEA (read Wendy’s review). I hope I enjoy it as much as she did! I also bought a book (second-hand) that I’m pretty sure I first heard about from a blogger (maybe Molly?): Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words by Susan G. Woolbridge.



What did you find in your mailbox this past week? For other Mailbox Monday posts, head over to Bermudaonion’s Weblog.
