Mailbox Monday, February 22, 2010




As most of you know Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Thank you once again Marcia for hosting this weekly event. :)

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.


This week in my mailbox:




Pieces of Sky, by Kaki Warner
Imperfect Birds, by Anne Lamott
The Confessions of Catherine De Medici, by C.W. Gortner
The Lotus Eaters, by Tatjana Soli
Game Change, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin
The Help, by Kathryn Stockett

The Lotus Eaters and Imperfect Birds appeal to me the most. I read The Help and loved it. Enjoy them all.

Marie said...

Diane..It is hard to decide what to read next.

Marie & Nadia...I have heard so much about The Help. I might have to sneak that one in my reading line-up soon.

Serena said...

I am totally jealous you have the new Gortner! Happy reading.

Amy @ Passages to the Past said...

I have the new Gortner too and am biting at the bit not to read it as I have so many others to get to!

Nice week you had - Happy Reading!

Definitely bump The Help up your reading list to the very near future part of the stack! A great book -- grabs you right at the beginning and before you know it you have read 60 pages! Enjoy!

Alyce said...

Great stack of books! I loved The Help, and I've got The Lotus Eaters in my TBR pile.

Nice mailbox! I bet Imperfect Birds is a good one!

Marie Burton said...

Great Box.. Like Amy we have the Gortner read for the HF Bloggers Round Table, & I am sure it is going to be as totally awesome as his last novel. He is a superb writer.
I also want to get THE HELP for future reading for pleasure, it is so popular that there has to be a good reason for it. Enjoy your books!
My mailbox is here.

I absolutely loved The Help, it made my favourite read list in 2009. You lucky ducky getting Gortner's book so early, I have a copy coming in a month. The Last Queen was fantastic!

Anna said...

I have a couple of these on my shelf waiting to be read, The Lotus Eaters and The Help. The others sound good, too. Happy reading!
