Mailbox Monday: May 23rd, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and May is being hosted by Mari 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!

How was everyone's weekend? Did you survive the rapture? :) I got to up to lots of fun things this weekend. The Bay Area hosted the Maker Faire this weekend which a fun, nerdy fest full of inspiration so we went and checked it out on Saturday and it was very cool! Saturday night a friend and I went to the Kylie Minogue concert - freaking awesome as always!! Sunday, I needed to relax so I treated myself to a massage. Why don't I go get those more often?! Ahhh ...

Now, it's Monday again. Remember how I was going to try to reduce the amount in my mailbox? I failed this week! But there's always next week :)

From Ballantine Books:
1. French Lessons by Ellen Sussman

From The Penguin Press for a TLC Book Tour
2. Killer Stuff and Tons of Money: Seeking History and Hidden Gems in Flea-Market America by Maureen Stanton

From Harper Collins:
3. My Dear I Wanted to Tell You by Louisa Young

4. Nom De Plume: A (Secret) History of Pseudonyms by Carmela Ciuraru

5. Tolstoy and The Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading by Nina Sankovitch

6. State of Wonder by Ann Patchett

From PBS:
7. The Secret Lives of Dresses by Erin McKean

What did you get?


  1. My Dear I Wanted To Tell You is new to me and sounds interesting. It might be a new one for my wish list. I seem to fail at reducing the amount of books coming in here too. I guess it's a good thing to fail at!

  2. Great mailbox books! Tolstoy and the Purple Chair was in mine last week - sounds good, doesn't it?

  3. My Dear I Wanted to Tell You sounds so good. Looking forward to your review!

  4. Wow - a great weekend and a great mailbox! :) Enjoy

  5. Wow, I love all the books you got last week. I'm trying very hard not to be jealous (a constant effort with me during Mailbox Monday). They all look so good. Happy Reading.

  6. You did get a lot of books-oh well better luck next time.

  7. but HEY! so you didn't go to BEA?!?!?! :)
    and of course, I'm curious abt the purple chair cover...
