Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday ~ February 16, 2009

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. This is my first listing and I did get some goodies. I have plenty to read but I love to see those envelopes and boxes arrive!

Monday 2/9 - Love and Other Natural Disasters by Holly Shumas came from a contest at Booking Mama. Thank you!

Tuesday 2/10 - People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks from a contest at Debbie's World. Thank you!
- The Makedown by Gitty Daneshvari from a contest at A Novel Menagerie. Thank you! (This was a great week for contests!)
- Five books from the Kitty Norville series by Carrie Vaughn. These are for a book blog tour in March sponsored by Hatchette.

Of course I picked up one or two (or three) books from the library too. It would be rude to leave with nothing!


  1. You had a great week. I love winning contests!

  2. People of the Book is SOOO good. Nice haul, that should keep you busy for a while. Ha ha at least a couple of days, right?

  3. Good selection. I've considered buying People of the Book before.

  4. I have the first four Kitty books in my TBR pile. I hear they are great!

  5. WOW! Sounds like you are on a lucky streak....good for you! Now the problem of what to read first, right? Have fun and congrats!

  6. You were lucky this week! I've got the Makedown on my tbr pile - it looks like a fun read.

  7. I'm hoping to get the Kitty Norville series - crossing fingers!
