Mailbox Monday: October 18th - 23rd, 2010

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and October is being hosted by She Reads and Reads! 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 and audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!

Anther Monday, ahhh! Well this was our first really rainy weekend of the fall season and I loved it! Maybe it's because I'm orginally from Seattle but I love hunkering down with books and movies and just not feeling guilty about not wanting to go outside for a whole weekend. It's very recuperating. How was your weekend?

Did everyone get some good stuff in their mailboxes this week? Here's what I got:

From Crazy Book Tours:
1. 'Simply from Scratch' by Alicia Bessette




















2. 'Trust' by Kate Veitch




















From PBS:
3. '97 Orchard: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement' by Jane Ziegelman




















4. 'Up for Renewal: What Magazines Taught Me About Love, Sex, and Starting Over' by Cathy Alter




















What did you get?!
