Mailbox Monday - Aug 16th - 21st, 2010

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and August is being hosted by Chick Loves Lit! 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!

Did everyone have a great weekend? This past Saturday I went to a California Book Bloggers lunch! It was so much fun to hang out with some great ladies - look for a full write up on that tomorrow :)

Here's what I got this week:
1. 'The I Hate to Cook Book' by Peg Bracken

From Crazy Book Tours:
2. 'Her Fearful Symmetry' by Audrey Niffenegger

3. 'The Jewel of St. Petersburg' by Kate Furnivall

From PBS:
4. 'Miranda's Big Mistake' by Jill Mansell

5. 'Pretty in Plaid' by Jen Lancaster

Let me know what you got!


  1. Can't wait to see what you think of Her Fearful Symmetry. Another book I've had on my shelves forever but never have time to read. :) My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  2. Loving those socks! That alone makes me wanna read that book :)

  3. Oh! I've been really wanting to read Pretty in Plaid for some time now. I can't wait to hear what you think of it. Enjoy!

  4. What a great group of books you received. I've had Her Fearful Symmetry on my shelves for the longest time and still haven't read it. Maybe your review will spur me on!

  5. Pretty in Plaid has my attention. Cute title. Enjoy your books. Here's what I received.

  6. Those sound good. Mine are here

  7. Great mailbox! I could SO use the I Hate To Cook Book! *L*


  8. I could use that I Hate To Cook Book. It has my name written ALL over it..LOL


  9. You and Jill Mansell need an intervention! :)

    Have you noticed that on the Jen Lancaster book, her socks are ARGYLE NOT PLAID??!!

  10. Miranda's Big Mistake looks good. Sure could use that cookbook too. I like to get in and out of the kitchen quickly. Enjoy your books!

  11. i love the books you got this week!

    i've only read bitter in black, but i love lancaster and i can't wait to see what you think of her other books.

  12. I like Pretty in Plaid. :)
