Mailbox Monday/It's Monday...what are you reading? plus...an apology in advance

Mailbox Monday is a weekly event hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

This is going to be a short MM and It's Monday post...just a quick update.  Also, I wanted to apologize in advance because I'm going to be doing about three review posts tonight to catch up for the end of the month.  Hope you don't go into True Book Addict overload...LOL!

Won:

From the Historical Fiction Bloggers Round Table week long event with C W Gortner.  I won this gorgeous necklace and Mr. Gortner was kind enough to send me a SIGNED copy of the UK trade edition of
The Confessions of Catherine de Medici--C W Gortner  I ADORE this cover! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!



From Jennifer at Crazy for Books...thanks!
Hannah's List--Debbie Macomber








In the Mail:

Ordered from BOMC2:

Wild Nights! Stories About the Last Days of Poe, Dickinson, Twain, James and Hemingway--Joyce Carol Oates










It's Monday...what are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Currently Reading:

Cardboard--Fiona Place
Virgin and the Crab--Robert Parry
Live a Life You Love--Dr. Susan Biali, M.D.  I'm only a handful of pages away from finishing this one.  Review will be up later this week.
Wolf Hall--Hilary Mantel  we are starting our discussion on Twitter (#TuesBookTalk) tomorrow night.

Up Next:

The Red Door--Charles Todd  a Library Thing early reviewer.
Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show--Frank Delaney  for review from the publicist.
Under the Dome--Stephen King  I am determined to get this one started!

48 Hour Book Challenge:

I am planning on participating this weekend in this event hosted by MotherReader.  I probably will not be able to do the whole 48 hours as Saturdays are when my mom and I do our thing (shopping, restaurant, book sales) and I'm getting ready for my trip to Michigan next week (my niece is graduating high school) so I'm doing laundry, packing, etc.  But I will manage to get in some quality reading time.  Look for my sign up post and list of books later this week! So exciting...I can't wait...I love read-a-thons!!!

12 comments:

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!
