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 (started at The Printed Page and now a traveling meme) is at BermudaOnion's Weblog this month and 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.

Busy, busy, busy! But not really getting much accomplished... You how this time of year gets - from Halloween on it's a flurry of birthdays and holidays. Last week we had our grandson's first birthday. I thought the time went fast with my own kids but I think it's going even faster now! Then we hosted a family Thanksgiving dinner at our house and hubby cooked a delicious meal. I was in charge of clean up and I'm still doing dishes. I even got in some Black Friday shopping with a friend - from my comfy couch on the computer. I hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving week and are finding lots of bargains too.

Now I'm trying to catch up on a few things while the house is quiet. I've got great books to read, reviews to post and a giveaway or two coming up. These are some of the books that arrived over the last few weeks. It's quite an interesting mix! What books found their way to your house?

  1. Nice mix of books!
    I haven't done any shopping yet - just can't do the big crowds so I'll go out during the week - in the morning :)

  2. You got some good ones, Debbie! I already read the Covenant and liked it. Got Murder Passes the Buck and Cold Granite but haven't gotten around to them yet. Hope you have a wonderful week and happy reading.

    1. They were all great deals weren't they? I have a ton of ebook now (mostly free) so I don't know when I will get to these but they look good!

  3. Great selection. It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! And, Abram's Daughters series (The Covenant)? Loved it. It was really my introduction to Amish Fiction. Beverly Lewis is one of my favorites. Enjoy!

    1. I usually enjoy it too if I don't stress myself out too much. I've learned to let a lot of things slide now and just have fun!
