Mailbox Mondays

Our Host for Mailbox Monday

Marcia of the Printed Page

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 & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

James and I discovered a great little bookshop in the small town of Watsonville this past week - Crossroads bookstore. Not only did they have a great assortment of new and used books, they had a friendly shop kitty called Bookie. We picked up several books including:

Presidents Reading Project

Personal Reading Challenge

for Father

For James

Plus I received two review books from Harlequin Teen this week:

Father is most impressed with the books I've been receiving lately, yet he is concerned about our crammed bookshelves. I'm contemplating what to do about this situation and like Marcia's Read it Forward, but I also like Staci's idea of Giving Books Back to You! I also like the give-a-way website hosted by Susan's West of Mars-Win a Book. Whatever I come up will be simple and easy - not a lot of rules. Any ideas?

What books did you receive this week?


  1. Whiskey Gulf appeals to me just because of the title and the cover.

    I'm contemplating the same thing you are - what to do with all the extra books I have that I know I'm not going to read again. I'm going to check out the websites you mentioned.

  2. You bought some great stuff!! As for how to give your stuff away, maybe just list all of the people who commented on that book and then do or something like that...sounds fairly easy??
