In My Mailbox/Mailbox Monday: March 29, 2010

Story Siren hosts In My Mailbox where book bloggers offer a peek into the books that arrived in their homes over the past week. Mailbox Monday hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page has the same objective. These memes are great in that they offer us a chance to see what others are reading- it's like candy for book addicts!

This week the collection of books that came into my home is a mix of books for review, audiobooks, wins from some great bloggers and the product of a trip to my favorite thrift store - I was there to drop off some clothes for donation but there was a book sale and . . . well, I am sure you know the rest!

What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures (Audio CD) by Malcolm Gladwell - I won this on
Readaholic. Thanks Bridget!

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker was win from Libby's Library. Thanks Libby!

Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah - I won this ARC from Kathleen at Mommy's Reading Thanks Kathleen!

A Week in December by Sebastian Faulks - this is for review from Doubleday

Lush Life: A Novel by Richard Price - I have heard good things about this author and novel and was excited to see it in the thrift store sale

Kiss My Tiara: How to Rule the World as a SmartMouth Goddess by Susan Jane Gilman - I picked the one up at the thrift store. I am on a bit of a Susan Jane Gilman kick these days and was happy to be able to snag this one in the sale

The Human Stain: A Novel by Philip Roth - I read The Plot Against America a number of years ago for a book club and was blown away. Many people have told me The Human Stain is one of Roth's best so I am looking forward to getting to this one (another thrift store purchase!)

Worst Case by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge - this audio CD arrived from Hachette (thanks Anna!) I'll have a giveaway posted soon for this one!

Ok - off to find a place to stow these (the shelves are pretty much full) - what came into your home this week?
