Mailbox Monday: January 16, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and January is being hosted by Alyce at  At Home With Books! 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 let me just say that I am currently enjoying a three-day weekend! It totally snuck up on me but happy MLK, Jr. day to you and if you have it off too, congrats! On Saturday we were greeted to a beautifully sunny day which was awesome because we were doing our engagement photos! We went up to a local park that overlooks the city and is near our house and spent a couple of hours taking some fun photos. I am so excited to see them! I promise to share a couple with you when I get them back in a few weeks but as our lovely photographer showed them to us on her camera they were looking good so here's hoping they turn out! First and foremost we want one for our Save the Dates. 

As for my books, I only received two in the mail this past week which is pretty good since I am trying really hard to cut down so I can catch up. A constant battle of wills for me!

From The Penguin Press:
1. All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps by Dave Isay

From PBS:
2. The Island by Elin Hilderbrand

What did you get?


  1. I liked The Island (audiobook). Enjoy your books and your day off!

  2. I just discovered Elin Hilderbrand last year and really enjoy her work. I haven't read the Island yet but I'm sure it will be a fun read.

  3. The idea of StoryCorps is fascinating to me -- will have to investigate that one!

  4. Elin HIlderbrand's books are usually a treat. I'll be interested in the StoryCorps book too. Enjoy your new reads.

  5. awww i'm glad to hear that the weather was cooperating when you got your engagement pictures done! but you live in california, home of perfect weather. do ya'll ever get bad weather?

    your books look interesting! i'm definitely curious about the storycorps one. hope you enjoy them both!

  6. I really must get around to reading a Hilderbrand novel. Enjoy your new books!

  7. That beach cover looks delicious in January!
