In My Mailbox (Sept. 26, 2010)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is fun to see what everyone else gets in their mailboxes, shopping bags, and library visits. Click on the link to The Story Siren's site to see the rules and join in the fun.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the cool books everyone gets. You will discover lots of wonderful blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

I thought I was going to have a really light mailbox post this week until Friday afternoon came along with three new books in my mailbox.
I won She's Gone Country by Jane Porter from Kristin at Always With a Book. This one looks like a fun read and it got good reviews too.

After seeing the buzz about the 50th Anniversary edition of Peg Bracken's The I Hate to Cook Book, I decided to update my old paperback copy. Now I just have to dig in and decide to do some cooking. I much prefer eating out or doing take-out.

I also received these books for review:
Siren Song by Cat Adams was sent to me by Cassie from Tor/Forge. I did enjoy Blood Song and am eager to read more about bodyguard Celia Graves. This one is a finished copy not an ARC.

I received an ARC of The Valcourt Heiress by Catherine Coulter via the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. I have read a number of her historicals and am eager to give this one a try.

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. Not too many, not too few! Hope you have a great week.....

  3. Haven't heard of The Valcourt Heiress but it does sounds like a good read! I've been eyeing the I Hate to Cook Book, since I really don;t like to cook. Thankfully, the hubby does that for me. I'm always trying to, though. Happy reading and happy cooking!
