Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books they received during the previous week. Warning: MM can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and huge wish lists! Mailbox Monday, which was started by Marcia (who now blogs at A girl and her books) is on blog tour—this month, it’s hosted by Mari at MariReads.
I didn’t receive any books in the mail this week, but I did meet up with Tina (Bookshipper) and Linda (Better with Books) at the tea shop for our usual monthly gathering. (Donna, Cindy and Amanda unfortunately couldn’t make it.) It’s been a while since I’ve been to a meet-up, so it was great to get together and chat and exchange books. One of the hot topics was Book Expo America, which just ended last week—both Tina and I hope to be there in 2012!
On the book front, Tina gave me her ARC of She Loves You, She Loves You Not by Julie Anne Peters (which is due out in June), while Linda gave me both The Girl Who Stopped Swimming and Backseat Saints by Joshilyn Jackson, as well as The Writer’s Retreat Kit: A Guide for Creative Exploration and Personal Expression by Judy Reeves.
After the meet-up, Linda and I stopped in at a local thrift store to drop off the extra books that none of us wanted and I picked up another book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan. I also bought a lovely pair of dark brown mugs that say “tea” on one side and “thé” on the other.
