27 September 2010

Thank you to all of the fabulous hosts for Mailbox Monday!  Originally created by The Printed Page, and hosted in September by BermudaOnion.

Thanks to 
BookJourney as well!

I'm still trying to recover from the Saturday visit to the fantastic
SIBA Trade Show held this year in Daytona Beach!  And by recover, I mean in the sense that I now have 47 books and I don't know where to start...  It was an incredible event, and I met 4 fantastic fellow bloggers!

So, other than my gazillion books that I picked up in one day, I also received these books in my mailbox this past week:


In the mail, I got
Dracula in Love, by Karen Essex (I got this a little bit ago, but forgot to include this on a recent post -- I won this from A Library of My Own -- thanks, Amanda!), A Northern Light, by Jennifer Donnelly, The Last Child, by John Hart, Three Wishes, by Liane Moriarty, The Drowning Tree, by Carol Goodman, and Your Roots Are Showing, by Elise Chidley.  Six more books!

Now, what do I start with?  Right now, I'm finishing up my write up for
Repairing Rainbows, complete with an author interview with Lynda Fishman, and hopefully posting it tomorrow.  A self-published memoir, and one to really read and reflect on life.

WINNERS of the My Lost Daughter Giveaway

Random.org selected the following:
Congratulations!!  Please make sure to send me your mailing address by 3 pm EST on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 - I'll mail the copy out to you right away!

Happy Reading!

  11. I just received a copy of The Last Child from a friend who said it was very good! Your stack of 47 books is quite amazing. That must be so much fun to meet up with other bloggers at a book convention. With all those books how will you pick which one to start with?

  22. Ok, I must see a pic of your bookshelves because where are you going to store all of these! haha....

    Start with the Goodman! It's a great read. I know a lot of people who've raved about the Hart book but I didn't really like it. Anyway, hope you enjoy all of your books!
