Mailbox Monday: Jan. 24th - 29th, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and January is being hosted by Rose City Reader! 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!

What did everyone do this weekend? Mine was pretty productive. I had a lot of errands to run (that I had been putting off!) and I got to have a fun girls night out so overall a great weekend!

I am hoping at some point the books are going to start tailing off because I can't keep up right now with the amount of reading I need to, yet every book that comes in I can't wait to read! So no complaints from me, just storage issues! Here's what I got this week: 

From Voice Publishers via Shelf Awareness:
1. Minding Ben by Victoria Brown

From St. Martin's Press:
2. Death and the Virgin Queen: Elizabeth I and the Dark Scandal That Rocked the Throne by Chris Skidmore

From the authors:
3. Table of Contents by Judy Gelman & Vicky Levy Krupp

From the author:
4. Leaving Parma by Angie Sarich

More books I bought (there was a Groupon!):
5. A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from my Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg

6. Half Broke Horses by Jeanette Walls

7. 29 by Adena Halpern

So, which should I read first? What did you get this week?


  1. looks like you got some good ones...happy reading

  2. Death of a Virgin Queen, Table of Contents, and 29 all look really good! I am going to have to check those out :)

  3. You have some great reading ahead. I look forward to reading what you have to say about these. I have Minding Ben as well, it looks good.

  4. Looks like you got a good variety there. Half Broke Horses would probably be my choice. (or Death and the Virgin Queen).

  5. Enjoy your books :D
    Poor me got nothing, but then I am not expecting anything ;)

  6. Half Broke Horses I've heard is good. Enjoy!

  7. here's mine

  8. Wow - some great books here! Table of Contents looks interesting. Here's mine:

  9. Table of Contents and A Homemade Life are on my wishlist. Enjoy!

  10. Leaving Parma should be your first read. It's a heart felt family journey that you can feel the love.

  11. Death and the Virgin Queen is new to me so thanks for this update!

  12. I've only read Half Broke Horses which was good. I think I would vote for the ElisabethI book.


  13. Too many books and not enough time is the story of my life!
