The Mailbox Post

I can’t believe we are already into the month of October and sadly today is your typical fall day here in Quebec. Its sunny but cool. The temperature is roughly about 10C (about 50F). When I look out the window I see the leaves falling from a neighbors tree a sure sign its fall.

As you know Mailbox Monday is originally hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page but recently she has decided to put Mailbox Monday on a blog tours and for the month of October Mailbox Monday is being hosted by my really good friend and fellow local blogger Avis and she blogs at She Reads and Reads.

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house during the previous week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!

This past week the following came to my door via the mailman/delvery guys.
[Single Voice Flip books (2 stories in 1)]
-Film Studies (Caroline Adderson)/The Trouble with Marlene (Billie Livingston
-Train Wreak (Malin Lindroth/Too Late (Clem Martini)

Thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing for sending this to me.

This past week I only bought one book and that is The Exile by Diana Gabaldon. I have been told that I need and should read The Outlander. I actually have it on my bookcase in the basement to read and never read it. So I thought I would pick this up and read it to see if it peaks my interest. I actually read Jane Erye in a graphic novel recently and now want to read Jane Erye.

Everytime I leave the library I always say to myself why did I take out so many books to read when I have stacks at home to read! This past weekend Michael had story time at the library and I got to looking around and needless this is what jumped in my bag:
(Since there is alot of books I won’t list then but you can see them from the pictures)
This one is the books I took out for me and the one below is for Michael.

This is what books found there way to my house last week, what about you?

Does anyone else go to the library and take out more books then they should? Thankfully some of the ones above if I don’t read them in three weeks I am able to renew them online for another three weeks.

*As per Avis’s request I have included pictures 🙂

  1. I bet Carl would love to get hold of The Scorch Trials. Enjoy your new treasures.

    By the way, I’ve discovered to other Montreal bloggers – Mrs. Q Book Addict and Aisle B.

  2. Kathy I knew about Mrs Q but I didn’t know about Aisle. I will have to check her out.

  3. Oh what a week! Foodista sounds great. 🙂

    Here’s my Monday.

  4. How exciting that you got a copy of the Scorch Trials! I cannot wait to get my hands on this one! I also go to the Library and get huge stacks of books even though my own bookshelves are overflowing! lol – I’ve heard great things about Hex Hall! Happy Reading!

    Taming the Bookshelf

  5. The Scorch Trials for me, please! 🙂

  6. Lots of good ones. I’d love the Foodista one! Enjoy!!

  7. The Canning book looks interesting. I have been wanting to can for awhile. My mom canned alot. There is nothing better than canned veggies int he dead of winter.

  8. OMG! Did you win the Lotto 49 or Super 7??! Smoking mailbox!

    Great to see another Montrealer and girl we’re a growing by the minute. I know Mrs Q well, she’s the woman who kicked my arse into gear to start Aisle B. She’s small but vicious ;P We share our common love for books and voila c’est history 🙂

    Avis from She reads and reads is also a Montrealer too. Cool n’est pas.

    Now back to your mailbox… your library seems to have some amazing selections. And loved the books for you wee one too.

    Have a great week reading et Salut!

  9. The Exile is on my TBR list – I read Outlander in January. Enjoy all your new books!

  10. Wow, lots and lots of books! I never go to the library, my local library is horrible and mostly has french books. I think it justifies my book buying. Enjoy all your books. I have HexHall waiting for me to read it. Have a great week!
