Mailbox Monday, August 16, 2010


(The pic is from The National Postal Museum, 1907)

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, the weekly meme created by Marcia from The Printed Page where book lovers share the titles they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the past week. Mailbox
Monday currently is on tour, and this month’s host is Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit.

This week I had an abundant mailbox some expected and some surprises. I want to thank all the publishers and authors who sent new books to the Bookworm Dinner's Mailbox.


BUDDY ZOOKA IN THE FRENCH QUARTER AND BEYOND
, by Praline Tangerine ( sent by Picnic Basket). This one is hysterical so far. You can just tell by the pic that this one that Buddy Zooka is a hoot. Well, it is a YA, but honestly it is a book for everyone. More on this one later.

MAPS AND SHADOWS, by Krysia Jopek ( sent by Aquila Polonica)

THE CAILIFFS OF BAGDAD, GEORGIA, by Mary Helen Stefniak (Library Thing Early Reviewer)



HEARTBROKE BAY, by Lynn D'Urso (Berkley Trade for HNR)

CURRICULUM 21, Essential Education for a Changing World, by Heidi Hayes Jacobs
(Self-Purchase)

DEWEY'S NINE LIVES, by Vicki Myron (Dutton)



LITTLE PRINCES, One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal, by Conor Grennan (William Morrow)

I am an IndieBound Affiliate and by purchasing any of these books through my link, I will make a very small percentage.

I'm so jealous! I want Heartbroke Bay, The Cailiffs of Baghdad, and Maps and Shadows! Hope you enjoy them. Please stop by my Mailbox when you have a moment!

Heartbroke Bay, The Cailiffs of Baghdad, and Maps and Shadows call out to me!

BTW, I am feeling much better. I simply snapped out of it. Maybe writing about it helped me in the right direction. I know I will have my moments but now I can cope. I am back to writing poetry and that's good!

BTW, if you are interested to read my poetry, please do click on my name.
