Mailbox Monday: November 28, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and November is being hosted back at the original Mailbox Monday blog! 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!


Well I sure enjoyed a nice five-day weekend! It's not very often I get to say that! We went down to Phoenix for the Thanksgiving holiday to spend the time with family and enjoyed the weather and the company. Arriving home yesterday, we've been busy getting life back to normal for the work week ahead. 


Only a couple of books arrived this week to allow me to catch up in my reading again!
From PBS:
1. The Hand That First Held Mine by Maggie O'Farrell




















2. The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen




















What did you get?

  1. Oh I have the hand that first held mine sitting on my bookshelf too. I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but I've heard amazing things about it. Hopefully we'll both enjoy it!

  12. I've had my eye on The Hand That First Held Mine for a while, and I love Sarah Addison Allen! The Girl Who Chased The Moon wasn't my favorite, but it was still a sweet story. Hope you enjoy!
