Mailbox Monday


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

Today is my husband’s birthday, and we’ll be celebrating in a low-key way with a cookout and some friends. Should be a nice time. I’m sure my husband will love that. With summer swim team in full swing, we’re driving all around the county at early hours and spending 2 days out of the week watching swimmers, including our own. We need any rest time we can get. I did finish a couple children’s National Geographic books with my daughter last week, and I’m nearly finished with Gary Sinise’s memoir on audio. I hope you are reading some great books.

In other fantastic news, Velvet of vvb32reads has stepped into the MM family, and she’ll be picking up the posts for July. Martha and I thank her very much for her courage. She’s been blogging about books since 2009, and she’s participated in MM for some time, and she’s happy to be carrying the torch for Leslie. She reads young adult books and I noticed that she also reads some Jane Austen inspired books. Please give Velvet a warm welcome.

NOW, Tell us about your new books by adding your Mailbox Monday post to the linky below:

Be sure to stop back later this week for Books That Caught Our Eye.
