Mailbox Monday

This is Mocha, a greyhound that loves to dress up for the holidays. Leave it to her to put her animosity toward bunny rabbits aside and dress like one. As the saying goes....a picture is worth.....
I just couldn't resist sharing her cute face. She is not my greyhound, I was there for our Meet & Greet to raise money.

Now for the books that arrived in my mailbox:

I actually went to the bookstore, and made a vow not to buy any books, yeah well that didn't happen. A friend had recommended the Anne Rice book The Witching Hour, so I had to get that before I forgot. Then I saw this book Lincoln, by Harold Holzer for 5.99 and I just couldn't pass that one up. The rest of the pile came via the mailbox.

1. The Doomsday Machine, Catherine Webb
2. Red Kiss, Deidre Knight
3. The Wish Maker, Ali Sethi
4. Angels of Destruction, by Keith Donahue

Have a great time reading all of your books too!!!
Go to the Printed Page to see what everyone else found in their mailbox.

Greyhounds are such pretty dogs! The first time I picked up The Witching Hour I couldn't read it but about a year later I picked it up again and this time really loved it so I hope you give it a chance! Enjoy your books :)

This is the second blog where I've seen Angels of Destruction. It's funny; I haven't heard of the book before, and the author was a panelist at the writer's conference I attended over the weekend. Now he's popping up left and right. Enjoy your new books!

That is such an adorable photo! You silly woman, going to a bookstore and vowing not to buy anything. :-) I wouldn't have been able to resist either.

I hope you enjoy The Witching Hour. That was my first Anne Rice book and I really liked it. Your other books look good too! I can't wait to read what you think of them.

Gwendolyn..It does look good..I'm anxious.
Thanks for stopping by.

Marie..I chuckled when I read your post. Thanks I feel better.

Literary Feline..I just couldn't resist posting this pic. It makes me smile.
A friend in my history grad course recommended it to me. She said the writing is fabulous.

Sadako..Thanks for stopping by.
Mocha is a trip dressed up. Thanks.

I can't ever be strong in a bookstore either. You had a great week.

wisteria said...

Naida...I think this photo is so cute. I thought you would be happy I was reading Ann Rice. You know I get scared easy. LOL

Ladytink..I have high hopes for The Witching Hour because a english grad major recommended it to me. I guess I like greyhounds..I was a foster failure.

Anna-How was the writer's conference?

They are looking good :) The Doomsday machine sounds intriguing, and red kiss, well I just like the sound of that one ;)

Enjoy your books

Anna said...

It was great! Thanks for asking. I will be posting about it hopefully today. :)
