Mailbox Monday-Aug. 9

Thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for starting the Mailbox Monday Meme that has us list the books that we received last week. Although Marcia isn't going to be hosting Mailbox Monday any longer, she set it up so different bloggers have the opportunity to host this meme for a month at a time.  This month the host is Chicks Love Lit and you can go to her blog to see what everyone else got last week or to play along.

I actually didn't receive any books in the mail last week, but I was did cave in and purchase a couple on my shopping trip last Friday:

Here is what I snagged at the thrift store and happens to be what I will be reading with my book club for our Christmas selection:
Comfort and Joy by Kristin Hannah

And then I found this at Barnes and Noble:


So what kind of new books came into your house last week?

I like Kristin Hannah and what a great deal to find one of her books at the thrift store. I didn't finish the Wally Lamb book. It just wasn't for me. I'm curious to see what you think of it.

Both of these books look very good! I've never read anything by Kristing Hannah but I really enjoy Wally Lamb's books.

Happy Reading, Jo!

I like that if no books arrive in your mailbox, you go out and get yourself some! Good thinking!

I'm intrigued by Wally Lamb books. I keep thinking I need to read one, but then I get intimidated by the length.

Have you read Wally Lamb before? His book I Know This Much Is True is my favorite book of all time. The Hour I First Believed is coming up in my TBR stack soon....

Anna said...

I've only read one Wally Lamb book (She's Come Undone), and I've long wanted to read more of his work. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on this one. Happy reading!
