Mailbox Monday - Jan. 18 -23, 2010

It's Mailbox Monday time! Hosted by Marcia over at the Printed Page, Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!

My main source of books each week is through paperbackswap.com but this week I got a very special treat in the mail! Author John Shors read my post on my top 5 favorite books of 2009 and was pleased to see that I had nominated his wonderful book 'Beneath a Marble Sky' no. 4 so he generously offered to send me his newest book, 'Dragon House'. I was so thrilled! How nice is he? Believe me I can not wait to read it! He also donates a portion a proceeds of the sale of this book to the charity Blue Dragon - so check it out!

1. 'Dragon House' by John Shors



















Additionally I got:
2. 'Open House' by Jill Mansell














3. 'Love and Summer' by William Trevor



















What did you get?

  8. I read Open House when we were in London, but I can't, for the life of me, remember a single thing about it, so I can't wait for your review to refresh my memory.
