Mailbox Monday-October 18

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 She Reads and Reads and you can go to her blog to see what everyone else got last week or to play along.


So I actually didn't receive any books in my mailbox this week, but I did manage to pick up a couple of books at the Twin Cities Book Festival last weekend!
Breakfast With the Pope by Susan Vigilante

The Miracle at Speedy Motors by Alexander McCall Smith

It was sure a great time at the Twin Cities Book Festival and I'm so glad that I finally had a chance to meet Sheila from Book Journey along with some other great bloggers!  I will be sure to post more about that later in the week.  In the meantime you really should check out Sheila's post about the panel she was on.  She did a great job and fit right in with the other panel contributors with the topic of 'The Changing World of Publishing'.  So did you get any new books in your home this last week?

I'm originally from Minnesota but have never been to the Festival there. I did just attend the Boston Book Festival this weekend, which was great. Happy reading! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

Breakfast With the Pope is a new title to me. Hope it's good! So nice you could meet up with the MN/WI bloggers. I wanted to but had a family thing and couldn't get away. Maybe next time...
