Mailbox Monday: Dec 10, 2012

Mailbox Monday is a meme in which readers share what has arrived in their mailbox each week. Although I haven't done my own Mailbox Monday post at all in 2012, I never miss a tour through the mailboxes where I check out what my fellow readers have received and add some of their boxes to my TBR list.

Mailbox Monday is hosted in December 2012 at Suko's Notebook. Stop by there to see other mailboxes. This week I received:


The Chronicles of Downton Abbey: A New Era by Jessica Fellowes and Matthew Sturgis : received from Emily at Wunderkind-PR
Isn't this book gorgeous? I think it will keep many a Downton fan happy until the series returns in the US on Jan 6th. Check back for my review and giveaway!

Nothing Ever Happens at The South Pole by Stan and Jan Berenstein was a twitter win from HarperCollins Children's  I know my niece will love this book from the creators of the Berenstein Bears

The Good House by Ann Leary - This one is getting great press already and the film rights have been optioned

Saturday Night Widows by Becky Aikman  - This memoir written by a young widow chronicles the support group of young widows she created after losing her husband to cancer. I read the prologue (in the elevator after ripping the package open in my lobby) and it is off to a great start!

What did you receive this week?



  1. The Good House and Saturday Night Widows sound great!

  2. Hope you like Downton Abbey. I haven't read the books or seen the tv series.

  3. Drooling over Downton Abbey. Can't wait for the series to start again. Have a great week and happy reading!

  4. I didn't know the Berenstains wrote a book like that. The Good House and Saturday Night Widows both look great to me!

  5. I like The Good House and Saturday Night Widows. I entered a contest for Saturday Night Widows, but apparently I didn't win. :)

    ENJOY all your books.
