Mailbox Monday. August 13, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday.
FOR AUGUST: the Mailbox Monday Tour host is Jennifer D at 5 Minutes for Books.

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs.  This Meme started with Marcia at A Girl and Her Books (fka The Printed Page) but is now hosted at Mailbox Monday and through various blog hosts.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. 

This  was another quieter week for my book garden. How is yours doing?

Review Titles
I received one print book for review this week:
This looks like a fun read from Reagan Arthur Division of Hachette
