The Mailbox Post

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Mailbox Monday is originally hosted by Marcia from A girl and her books and The Printed Page. In the summer of 2010 Marcia decided she needed a change in hosting and didn’t want to rely on one blogger alone to do it because its a lot of work so she decided to put Mailbox Monday on tour and so far with great success it has made monthly stops at more then a dozen blogs and this year is booked until the end. I will actually be hosting Mailbox Monday in April.

The host for February is DC Metro Reader.

Another host for In My Mailbox is Kristi from The Story Siren.

Be sure to check out the above blogs to see what they and others got in their mailboxes this past week.

In honor of Valentine’s Day this week I thought that I would use the above image this week.

This was a quiet week in books and here is what I got:
For Review:

Thanks to Thomas Allen for sending me this book to read.

For Book Tours:

I will be on the March 19th tour for this book.

I will be reviewing and having a guest post by an author on the 18th (this upcoming week).

The two above books were ebooks.

Books Bought:

So this is what I got this past week. I hope everyone had and has a good week.

A Happy Early Valentine’s Day to you. I think I will be getting one book on Valentine’s Day but I am not entirely sure.

The Mailbox Post (actually is the week of bought books)

Its hard to believe its that time of the week when you get to see what books came to my door this past week. Is it just me or does it seem like the days are flying by? I am looking at the calendar and just realized that we are the end of October. This is actually the last full week left of the month.

Before showing you the books I should tell you that the host for In My Mailbox is Kristi from The Story Siren and Mailbox Monday was orginally hosted by Marcia from A Girl and her Books and then she decided to put Mailbox Monday on a blog tour so this month’s host is Serena from Savvy Verse and Wit.
