Mailbox Monday for 5/14/12


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at Mailbox Monday and is being hosted all this month by Martha of Martha's Bookshelf.


I received an ARC of The Girl Below by Bianca Zander for an upcoming TLC Book Tour.


I received an ARC of An American Family by Peter Lefcourt from the publicist for review.


I won a hardcover of The Great Animal Orchestra by Bernie Krause from Beth of Beth's Book Reviews.






And speaking of the wonderfully, glorious Beth of Beth's Book Reviews, I had a lovely surprise waiting at home when I got off work Saturday night.  During the day I had received a package from her containing paperbacks of The Album by Mary Roberts Rinehart, The Yellow Room by Mary Roberts Rinehart, Fer-De-Lance by Rex Stout, The Golden Spiders by Rex Stout, and If Death Ever Slept by Rex Stout.  Needless to say I'm excited for all of them.  She also enclosed a lovely bookmark, that I will be using quite a bit.

Interesting stack. Enjoy.

The Girl Below looks interesting.
Oh - I think I remember reading Mary Roberts Rinehart back in the 70s! And Rex Stout is another classic mystery author.
Enjoy your books. :-)

I think you have some great looking books. Wondering about The Girl Below, that cover grabbed me! Enjoy them all!

Wow! What a great bunch of books. That was generous of her to send you those. I still have yet to read a Rinehart book, but they're still on my eReader and I'll get to them someday. Hey, at least I'm reading one Agatha a month now with the Agatha Christie Book Club (have you heard of it?). That American Family book was one I was trying to win from BookTrib. It sounds like a good one.

Enjoy your books!
