Mailbox Monday is hosted at it's very own blog. I'm taking a bit of blogger liberty with this meme. It is supposed to be titles that showed up in my mailbox. But all of these did not come in the mail.
I haven't posted to Mailbox Monday in a very long time. I don't receive any ARC copies and rarely purchase books. I have been using the library a lot lately and of course share with friends. Plus, I have a pretty full bookcase of books that I have not read and really want and need to.
That being said, these last couple of weeks were a bit different. My F2F book club does not meet in the summer. I don't know why this was decided 12 years ago when the club was formed, but I think it was because most members were teachers, and teachers like their summers free. ( not that I blame them one bit). Nowadays, our membership is about 1/2 teachers and the rest of us. Retired teachers, wives of teachers, bookkeepers, retired bookkeepers, receptionists, make up the balance. We are reading a trilogy over the summer.
So these are the new books at my house this week!
Top to bottom:
The Summer Hideway: The Lakeshore Chronicles by Susan Wiggs Shared from a friend and the 7th in the series. I have not read any of them.
The Secrets of Mary Bowser by Lois Leveen Shared from a friend and a book club read that I missed when we were traveling in March.
The Ticket by Karen Schutte #1 in the trilogy that is our summer read
Seed of the Volga by Karen Schutte #2
Flesh on the Bone by Karen Schutte #3
I purchased all three of these from Amazon, so these really did come in my mailbox (well in actuality on the porch because they came via FedEx. )
The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant. This one is from the library. It has been on my TBR list for a few months.
Did you have a full mailbox last week? Have you read any of these titles?
